DEMOLITION MANAGEMENT PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

PROJECT 1: Comprehensive Environmental Support for the Dismantlement of a Natural Gas Liquids Recovery Plant

Thoughtful, timely, safe, and cost-effective environmental support for the dismantlement of this multiple-component facility.

Landmark provided comprehensive environmental support for the dismantlement of a natural gas liquids recovery plant. The project scope included four natural gas compressor engines and two natural gas oil heaters. Landmark’s work included documentation of pre-existing environmental conditions, and preparation of requisite demolition management documents including the Asbestos Management Plan, Health and Safety Plan, and Spill Containment, Control, and Countermeasure Plan. The asbestos management strategy included assessment of non-friable asbestos and the development of preferred alternatives for the management of asbestos during facility dismantlement. 

Landmark subsequently provided oversight of the dismantlement of the natural gas compressor engines and natural gas oil heaters, including asbestos and catalyst abatement, air monitoring, and visual inspections to monitor breathing and ambient air. The project, performed at heights and in extreme weather conditions, was completed efficiently, safely, and within identified budgets.

PROJECT 2: Decontamination and Demolition Management of a Petroleum Technology Center

Landmark’s precedent-setting Materials Management Plans for the closure of an 80-acre Petroleum Research facility was recognized by U.S. EPA for Significant Achievement.

During this six-year facility deactivation and decommissioning project, Landmark conducted environmental due diligence, developed project specifications for decommissioning, and provided industrial hygiene and abatement management services for building demolition and contaminated soils remediation to support the closure of an 80-acre former Petroleum Technology Center in Colorado. We evaluated and performed a cost-benefit analysis for the waste management and recycling processes and supported the implementation of waste consolidation.

Our client received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Environmental Excellence Award for Voluntary and Significant Cleanup. The Asbestos in Soils Program Landmark developed for the site was later incorporated into newly promulgated Solid Waste Regulations in the Colorado Revised Statutes.

PROJECT 3: Demolition Management of a Major Retail Redevelopment Project

Redevelopment of a 100-acre major commercial property required conscientious environmental technical services to support reliance by numerous lenders.

The redevelopment of a Colorado commercial and major retail site was initiated with the closure of the site, followed by environmental abatement and structural demolition of the 900,000-square foot facility. Landmark performed planning and environmental permitting, including federal, state, and local permits for National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, and Clean Air Act.  Asbestos inspections were conducted, and abatement oversight was performed, resulting in no violations or safety incidents. 

The abatement work was valued at more than $1.5 MM, and Landmark’s data quality resulted in less than 5% in change orders during demolition. Close coordination of environmental abatement and demolition activities resulted in an aggressive six-month schedule for site closure, which was attained.  Landmark conducted inspections and Environment, Health, and Safety reviews of the abatement, which was performed closely with site redevelopment activities in a high traffic/active construction area. Landmark successfully negotiated regulatory approvals of management of non-friable asbestos during demolition, resulting in lower costs and increased re-use and recycling of building materials.
