Scope of Work:
Fountain Square, the traditional heart of Cincinnati suffered from poor design, an absence of programming and lack of maintenance. O’Rourke Wrecking Company was hired to redevelop the Square. Work included surgical removal of a post-tensioned elevated pedestrian walkway located directly adjacent to occupied buildings and over public roadways, removal of all existing site features and elements (pavers, landscape planters, performance stage, stair/elevator shafts/ mechanical air intakes) as well as selective removals within the underlying 4-level parking garage. Demolition work was sequenced and expedited as to allow prompt commencement of the reconstruction efforts.
