Corhart Refractories Plant Demolition

Louisville, KY

Scope of Work:

Asbestos Abatement, Universal Waste Removal & Structural Demolition

Project Detail:

Mass demolition and removal of a former industrial complex that previously manufactured refractory brick. Originally constructed in the early 1900’s, the facility spanned two distinct properties with multiple buildings and building types for a total demolition area of approximately 230,000 SF. Work included completion of preparatory asbestos and universal waste abatement.  O’Rourke designed and implemented a site specific EPA Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan compliant with strict local regulations.  Demolition work was performed as a precursor to removal of low-level radioactive waste, a natural by-product of the refractory manufacturing process.
