Project Scope: 4 Story building with a basement consisting of 120,000 square feet in downtown San Francisco. AMPCO was contracted to complete the abatement, demolition, and excavation of the building. The environmental scope included asbestos and lead abatement.
Means and Methods: We started with the abatement begin- ning at the roof and working our way down, and then followed with abating the PCBs, lead paint, and creating a scrim.
Challenges Faced: The 4-story Van Ness building was next to an active Assisted Learning Building. AMPCO provided an engineered structural demolition and a site-specific dust control plan and then used multiple 300 series Excavators to demolish the building safely, with no safety incidents or ac- accidents, or public property damage.
