TB Hospital Demolition
Location: Paris, KY
Scope of Work:
Asbestos Abatement, Structural Demolition, Tank Removal, Historical Salvage, Excavation
The small rural town of Paris, Kentucky provided the backdrop for the demolition of a long since abandoned tuberculosis hospital. Years of inactivity and weather degradation provided a structure that was dilapidated as it was eerie. The project first required abatement of asbestos contaminated building contents, utility tunnels and soils. Other project particulars included the salvage of ornamental limestone, excavation of buried tanks and utilities, and general mass demolition of the entire facility. The structures demolished included the various buildings necessary to allow it function as a full quarantine campus, including a laundry, boiler building, nurses residences, filling station with buried tanks, and the main care and patient dormitory.
