Environmental Impact,
Sustainable Demolition
& LEED Projects

NADC's approach to sustainable demolition includes a greater emphasis on how waste management and recycling can be achieved by best practice implementation of approaches for Materials Resource Efficiency (MRE) associated with demolition activities and with a decision making framework which promotes:

  • Building reuse
  • Deconstruction
  • Product reclamation and reuse
  • Recycling

Environmental Impact Statement
Our Environmental Impact Statement
(click on image) outlines and
reinforces this philosophy.

Our protocol provides indices which allow targets to be set for the above on the basis of area, tonnage, volume, value etc. Other features include:

  • Site waste management plans: demonstrates how our protocol supports local, state and federal compliance
  • Carbon benefits: describes how, through easily avoided haulage movements, these can be estimated easily
  • Checklist to simplify implementation

For a building/infrastructure considered to have reached the end of its useful life, NADC takes a client and project management team through a process which ensures that the priorities of waste management and recycling have been considered and form a part of the decision making process.

The viability of approaches advocated by the waste management plan - in terms of cost impacts/benefits, health and safety, logistics and the potential to deliver wider environmental benefits (waste minimization being the first priority) will be considered when following this process.

We work closely with our client's from the inception of the proposed demolition and/or reconstruction project to assure the most efficient asset recovery plan, as well as a sustainable impact on the environment.

For the P.H. Glatfelter Paper Co. project, NADC used a Volvo EC700CHR ultra high reach demolition excavator with LaBounty MSD 1500 hydraulic rotating shear to deftly dismantle two chemical boiler buildings and electrostatic precipitator as well as related ductwork and piping.
