Cheswick, PA – 1997 – $1,200,000
Scope of Work:
A Department of Defense facility managed by Westinghouse Corporation repaired reactor-circulating pumps that were used on nuclear-powered submarines and ships. After years of operation, radiological and asbestos contaminants were present throughout the structure and subsurface soil. This 30,000 square foot building required decontamination prior to its demolition.
The project involved decontamination of the pump repair building, approximately 30,000 square feet. All interior surfaces were decontaminated on-site. After decontamination, the structure was demolished. Approximately 90% of the structural material was recycled after the decontamination process. Contaminated soil beneath the structure was removed and packaged for off-site disposal. The site was backfilled and readied for site restoration.
Recycling of the demolition debris provided significant savings to Westinghouse.
