HUDSON RIVER MILL
Abatement, Deconstruction and asset recovery
The Corinth, NY International Paper Mill project was comprised of approximately 50 structures ranging from 1,000,000 gallon oil tanks and 50 foot concrete/steel silos to large concrete/steel buildings which date back to the plant opening in the late 1800’s.
NorthStar’s scope included challenging site work on steep grades where elevations change up to 150 feet – from the highest point at the entrance of the site all the way down to the Hudson River. The site was part of a shared property housing two active power generating plants and a waste water treatment plant. Avoiding disruption to the critical services provided by the 3 adjoining facilities added to the complexity of this project. Additional scope included maintaining and preserving the roads that service the adjoining power generation and water treatment plants.
Included in the work being performed is the removal of over 400,000 square feet of asbestos containing roofs; Removal of 3 transformers containing PCBs, all PCB ballasts and other universal wastes including mercury light tubes; Processing of more than 70,000 tons of concrete to 6″ minus to use as backfill on site; Processing and recycling of more than 16,000 tons of steel; Processing and recycling of over 700,000 lbs. of non – ferrous materials and soil remediation.
NorthStar engaged as many as 55 workers simultaneously on this project, with specialized teams performing asbestos abatement, structural demolition with machines, preparation for demolition by hand, universal waste recovery, asset recovery and salvage and recycling concurrently.
This project was completed on-time and on-budget.
