Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) June 22, 2006
F&L/Wrecking Corp Joint Venture (FL/WCA), which was awarded the demolition contract for the new DC Major League Ballpark to house the National League’s Washington Nationals, has neared completion of the complex project. FL/WCA is an LSBDE partnership of Wrecking Corporation of America (WCA), which has helped pave the way for the future of the DC area through numerous high-profile demolition projects, and F & L Construction Inc., a Washington, DC-based construction and hauling contractor. The general contractors for the project are Bethesda-based Clark Construction Group, Indianapolis-based Hunt Construction and the SR Smoot Corporation of DC.
FL/WCA is handling the demolition as well as hazardous material and debris removal of a six-city-block area, bounded on the north by N Street SE, on the west by South Capitol Street, on the east by First Street SE, and on the south by Potomac Avenue SE. By the time the project is completed, FL/WCA will have dismantled and relocated a working asphalt plant and will have razed some 34 structures, including a number of low-rise industrial steel-frame buildings, a few residential properties, and auto storage yards.
“We’re excited to have thrown out the first ball for the new stadium construction,” said Terry Anderson, EVP for Wrecking Corporation of America. “Even by Washington standards, this is a landmark project, and WCA feels lucky to have the opportunity to participate. We expect the work to be completed by the end of the month.”
“The project is a significant one for the area, and we’re pleased to have taken the first steps toward construction of a permanent home for the Washington Nationals,” said Freddie Winston, President, F&L Construction.
The demolition work and debris removal was done on a fast track schedule, beginning on the southern portion of the site and moving north.
