Demolition and Abatement

NorthStar was contracted to perform the demolition, asbestos abatement and asset recovery of the Crystar and DMT Manufacturing facility for DuPont in Old Hickory, TN.  The project was performed in two phases.

Phase One required NorthStar crews to work seven days a week for four months to complete the asbestos abatement, demolition and site restoration of a 260,000 sf warehouse.  The average crew size for the initial phase  consisted of approximately 100 employees on site.  The remaining phase of the project is nearly complete and is being performed on a standard work week over an additional 12 months.

Phase Two includes the asbestos abatement of the 8 level Crystar Manufacturing Facility, Dow Boiler, Processing Facility and DMT tank storage facilities.  Project tasks also include the removal of a pipe rack system throughout the entire plant with over two miles of piping.  During the demolition of the facility, NorthStar Asset Recovery Team has been isolating and removing specialized equipment such as valves, electrical panels, chrystalizers, etc. for re-sale.

To date, this project is on-schedule, on-budget and with no OSHA recordable incidents.
