Case Study: 255 West Fifth Street, San Pedro


Courtesy of Ellis Environmental Management, Inc.

Ellis has just completed the administration of abatement at this 11-story former office building in San Pedro. Because the building was scheduled for demolition through explosive implosion, Ellis had to ensure that all potentially hazardous materials (which could become airborne during demolition) were first removed. To do this, Ellis specified and procured bids for the removal of all non-structural materials in the building. When the project was complete, only steel and concrete remained.

Ellis’ administrative efforts insured that:

  1. All hazardous materials were sampled, identified and quantified.
  2. Only reputable, bonded, and insured contractors were allowed to bid the work.
  3. Those contractors received a concise set of removal specifications, to include all requirements for utility shutoffs, site security, removal work methods, critical dates, waste transport, and final clearance criteria.
  4. Upon completion of the project, the demolition contractor had certification from a California CAC (Certified Asbestos Consultant) that all asbestos and other hazardous materials had been removed.

Asbestos removal was performed by Marcor Remediation of Cerritos, California. Implosion of the building was performed by Dykon Blasting Corporation, Tulsa, Oklahoma.
