AVTEC Third Ave Dorm Replacement


Location: Seward, Alaska
Type of Project: Commercial; Demolition
Project Duration: March 2013-April 2014
Contractor Type: Subcontractor

Hazardous Materials Removed: Asbestos
Quantity Removed: 6 CY
Scope of Work: Established traffic control plan and haul routes to eliminate congestion and improve safety measures. Erected temporary fencing and appropriate signage to demarcate work areas. Coordinated all utility disconnects to include communication, electrical, sewer, storm, and water with the general contractor, private trades, and City departments. Structure was demolished from south to north to keep unpredictable high winds from blowing building debris to the surrounding schools, businesses, and roads. General debris was loaded and hauled to the nearest landfill 200 miles away. Concrete foundation and asphalt pavement was separated and recycled locally. Steel and other non-ferrous metals were recycled. Site was rough graded for future construction of a new dormitory. Despite the freezing temperature, blizzard conditions, and long hauls, the project was an overall success with zero accidents and on schedule.
