LSRS Finishes Largest Oak Ridge Demolition to Date.
This month LATA-Sharp Remediation Services finished the final phase of the Building K-33 demolition project in Oak Ridge. Under the K-33 demolition project LSRS removed transite siding, demolished the building, removed the slab and packaged and transported all associated debris to Oak Ridge’s Environmental Management Waste Management Facility (EMWMF). K-33’s demolition was finished five months ahead of schedule in April 2011, and debris removal was completed in September, three months ahead of schedule. During the nine-month project, 164,000 tons of steel and concrete were transported in 13,000 shipments to the EMWMF for disposal. The slab removal resulted in more than 3,600 shipments of concrete totaling 61,300 tons and 125 cubic yards of disposed contaminated soil. The K-33 demolition project was funded by a portion of the $755 million Oak Ridge’s EM division received from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
