Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. Completes Interior Demolition and Used Equipment Salvage Project
April 8, 2005 -- Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. (Dallas Contracting) was contracted by a large general contractor to provide interior demolition services and equipment removal at a 100,000 square foot office and light manufacturing building located in central New Jersey. The scope of work included interior demolition of all interior sheetrock walls, partitions, flooring, drop ceilings and HVAC. It also included the removal of all mechanical and boiler room equipment.
Interior demolition (also known as strip-out or gut-out) of the 100,000 sf building was conducted utilizing a 10-man crew with several scissor lifts and skid steers. The crew systematically worked from the rear of the building towards the front demolishing the sheetrock walls, partitions, floor coverings, drop ceilings and HVAC. Workers on scissor lifts utilized demolition saws and torches to cut piping, ductwork and other conduit. Debris and garbage was removed utilizing skid steers. The skid steers were also utilized to help sort salvageable scrap metal and then load the scrap metal into containers for offsite recycling.
A mechanical room containing chillers, boilers, switchgear, compressors and air dryers also needed to be completely gutted. Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. utilized a combination of our interior demolition and rigging crews and our investment recovery and used equipment-purchasing experts to salvage equipment for resale. Equipment salvaged for resale included various pumps, air compressors and associated air dryers and filters, switchgear, dry type transformers and several motors. The remaining equipment was either too old or outdated to be of any value for resale. This non-salvageable equipment was cut up and sent offsite for scrap metal recycling.
Dallasís first goal was to itemize, salvage and rig out all the resalable used equipment. Packaging and filling line equipment including conveyors were dismantled, match marked and sent to several end user buyers. Stainless steel storage and process tanks were rigged out of the facility using forklifts and equipment rollers. There were over ten (10) stainless steel tanks of various sizes and capacities. Some of the tanks were immediately sold and some were sent to our storage yard to be inventoried for future sales. There were also compressors, transformers, mixers, pumps, valves, and scales that were placed on pallets and either sold immediately or brought back to the yard for inventory and future sale. Dallas Contracting Co., Inc. maximized the value of the scrap metal by sorting ferrous and non-ferrous metals and through our strong relationships in the scrap metal market.
The entire project was completed in a month and a half. There were no injuries or incidents as safety is the number one priority for Dallas Contracting.
