HISTORIC CHURCH: EMERGENCY DEMOLITION 

PORTSMOUTH, VA

East Coast Demolition worked with City of Portsmouth to complete full abatement, structural demolition, foundation and basement demoltion, as well as backfill and site restoration.  The existing roof structural integrity was compromisedof the years due to weather, creating an emergency to surrounding pedestrians and traffic, with the risk of the outer walls failing. 

 

Utilizing our Volvo High Reach excavator, we are able to demolish the enitre Church from a safety exclusion zone within the property boundaries, without having to shut down city streets.  Demolition was carried out during normal business hours, while still ensuring the safety of the surrounding public and allowing normal daily activities to continue.

 

Demolition, cleanup, and backfill was completed in a 8 day timeframe, reducing the disruption to the surrounding businesses and residents.
