A significant portion of Northwest Demolition’s work is for government agencies. This work ranges from federal agencies to port authorities to local municipalities.
Efficient government contracting is a distinct skill set. We have experienced management and contracts personnel with specific government contracting, projects controls, billing and bonding expertise. Our operation and management teams bring specific experience to challenging projects. We have excellent bonding capacity often required by these public agencies.
The Government Services sectors/customers we work with include:
- Bureau of Reclamation
Example Government & Military Projects
Johnston Atoll Chemical Agent Disposal System (JACADS)
Northwest Demolition demolished the JACADS facility, a Chemical Weapons disposal plant located on a remote island 800 miles southwest of Hawaii. This project proved to be a large stepping-stone in the development of Northwest Demolition’s remote location capacity.
This project yielded over 8,500 tons of recyclable metal and some 2,700 tons of scrap munitions. The following year we returned to Johnston Atoll to perform the excavation and removal of 9,000 tons of hazardous and Subtitle D waste.
All support facilities for the island were decommissioned, thus Northwest Demolition had to be totally self-sufficient (operations, transportation, accommodation, communications and medical support).
Umatilla Chemical Depot (UMCD)
Northwest Demolition was contracted to complete a full removal of the agent disposal system at the Umatilla Army Depot. The 60,000+ tons of debris generated within the demolition was regulated as a Hazardous Waste and hauled under manifest to a Subtitle C disposal facility. In order to meet the aggressive schedule, we mobilized more than 12 pieces of heavy equipment. The project was completed ahead of schedule with no lost time injuries.
Navy Site Restoration Centerville Beach California
Northwest Demolition was hired to identify, excavate, and dispose of metals, petroleum and PCB-contaminated soils originating from WWII Navy operations. Included was the asbestos abatement and demolition of 22 buildings on the site. The onsite recycling of concrete debris, import of topsoil, site grading, and vegetation completed the scope.
Military Housing Replacement Hawaii
Over a period of 10 years, Northwest Demolition worked with multiple agencies to replace thousands of housing units in Hawaii. Some of the sites included Kaneohe Marine Corps Base, Hickam AFB, Pearl Harbor, and NCTAMS. Working on very aggressive time frames, the project team worked to remove and prepare 1½ units each day for many years. During the demolition, crews managed asbestos-containing materials as well as chlordane-contaminated soils. All of the concrete derived from the demolition was recycled for use in construction of the new housing units.
