Former Hardware Manufacturing Building Decontamination

Reading, Pennsylvania

Services: Facility Services
Clients Served: Industrial

Loureiro provided a large, industrial manufacturer with professional resources to perform the decontamination and decommissioning of a 260,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The facility required cleaning following the discontinuation of operations to prepare for repurposing or demolition. The client relied on our HAZWOPER trained employees to perform the work in accordance with applicable local, state and federal regulations. Prior to starting the work we implemented our rigorous job-hazard analysis approach to ensure a safe and successful outcome.

The work consisted of decontamination and dismantling of 2,500 linear feet of air ducts ranging in size from 12 inches to six feet in diameter, the decommissioning of four plating lines ranging in footprints of 600 to 5,000 square feet, and the removal of 12 process tanks, ranging in size from 1,000 to12,000 gallons. We also removed impacted dust using a combination of high efficiency vacuums and power washing, removed lab chemistry, cleaned and removed pipes and oil tanks, and completed various additional cleanups throughout the facility. We employed a combination of cleaning and dismantling techniques to allow us to access areas from nine feet below the shop floor to those located on the facility roof.
