Case Studies

Cost Savings through Salvage

Rhodia Chemical Plant Demolition, Louisville, KY – CRS Demolition saved the city of Louisville $2 million. Targeted for redevelopment, the 16 acre abandoned chemical plant had to go. After receiving a demolition bid for $2 million from another company, the city of Louisville turned to CRS Demolition for help. True to the company’s reputation for success in the resale and recycle markets, CRS Demolition agreed to take on the project for one dollar with the opportunity to resell the pumps, motors, tanks, reactors, electrical equipment, copper wiring, steel structures, concrete and bricks.

On Time Every Time

Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center East Wing/East Hall Reconstruction Project, Louisville, KY – CRS Demolition was chosen for the abatement and demolition of 400,000 square feet of space with a project deadline of 45 days. The building scheduled for demolition was attached on three sides to other buildings of the center. A $10,000 per day penalty would apply for working past deadline. In addition to carefully removing the large building connected to Freedom Hall and the South Wing, CRS Demolition also worked hand in hand with the builder of the new construction. The builder was faced with a $50,000 per day penalty for any delays on the new construction. True to the company’s reputation for smooth operations, CRS Demolition was able to deliver the project a day early (44 day completion) and assist the builder with prep areas on site during the demolition.

Diplomacy Goes Along Way

Implosion of the Shortway Bridge, Newport, KY – CRS Demolition was successful in managing a cast of thousands to complete this project. True to the company’s reputation for experience and diplomacy, CRS Demolition successfully worked together with representatives of two cities, two counties, two state and federal transportation cabinets, two fire departments, two police departments, the Army Corp of Engineers, the US Coast Guard, the EPA, and numerous barge companies. With a slew of permits that took 5 months to secure, CRS Demolition managed to close the Ohio River, blow up the bridge and fish out the pieces for resale, within the 24 hour time frame permit.

No Job Too Large

Indiana Army Ammunition Plant, Jeffersonville, IN – CRS Demolition managed the demolition and removal of 40 large buildings scattered throughout the 10,000 acre facility. True to the company’s reputation for environmental clean up, CRS Demolition was successful in meeting the EPA requirements for the entire area upon completion of this extensive demolition.
