  DEMCO successfully performed decontamination operations and safely demolished the 50,000 square foot, 2-story plutonium production building, along with its various smaller support buildings. DEMCO sorted, segregated, sized and transported, on-site, over 200 ton of RAD contaminated debris genertated by the demolition operations.

Under this contract, DEMCO successully :

* Demolished 50,000 square feet, 2-story plutonium production building, and various smaller support utility buildings, which produced approximately 5,888 cubic yards of concrete and debris.
* Cleaned & HEPA vacuumed RAD contaminated dust on inside building surfaces.
* Handled, sorted, segregated, sized and transported, on-site, RAD contaminated debris generated by the demolition operations.
* Managed waste streams for proper disposal.
* Loaded 200 ton of RAD contaminated structural steel into SCO (Surface Contaminated Objects) # 5001 boxes.
* Loaded wooden waste crates with RAD contaminated concrete block walls.
* Designed and implemented Fugitive Dust Control Plan and Storm Water Run Off Plan for all phases of project.
