22-019 | Building Demolition and Asbestos Removal

Updated: Feb 18

Pittsburgh, PA | Oct 2022 – Mar 2023



This Federal renovation project included demolition of a portion of Building 165 and its two ancillary sheds and fan tubing. Within Building 165, JBrennon et al removed internal false ceilings and walls consisting of asbestos containing materials (ACM); demolished all electrical fixtures (outlets, lights, switches, unused disconnects); and removed windows and a large roll up door. JBrennon employed a structural engineer to advise and comment on separating the building prior to saw cutting to ensure the integrity of the remaining structure. Additionally, JBrennon performed removal of approximately 4,300 SF of concrete slab and footings ranging in thickness between 6” and 48” utilizing walk behind concrete saws and a large excavator with hydraulic hammer. Following completion of demolition activities, JBrennon graded the site and filled in/compacted aggregate material to level the old building footpring. During construction operations, JBrennon actively monitored for asbestos and silica particulates in accordance with local and State laws under Allegheny County, PA jurisdiction. Notably, JBrennon is licensed and authorized to perform asbestos mitigation and remediation in a number of States.
