University of Kentucky Medical Center Parking Garage
Location: Lexington, KY
Scope of Work:
Structural Demolition, Selective Demolition, Dismantling, Rigging
This project involved the structural demolition of a five (5) story pre-cast parking garage and cast in place pedestrian walkway. The parking garage shared one support wall with the existing hospital. Throughout the duration of the project the directly adjacent EMERGENCY room was able to remain open. The job required a mixed use of conventional demolition and selective dismantling activities. Operations varied extensively utilizing a crane and wrecking ball, hydraulic excavators equipped with concrete shears and pulverizers, and diamond wire saws associated with extensive rigging and picking operations.
