Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) October 24, 2007
Wrecking Corporation of America, which has provided demolition services to major industrial, commercial, and government clients in the Washington DC, Virginia, and Maryland metropolitan areas for more than 30 years, has been awarded a contract for the demolition Waterfront Mall at 4th and M Streets in southwest DC. The project also includes excavation for a new structure for the site. The general contractor for the project is the Clark Construction Group LLC of Bethesda.
"This is the largest single building in the District to be razed," said Terry Anderson, Wrecking Corp executive vice president, "and it's part of the master plan for the renewal of the DC waterfront. The building is a massive concrete structure that has to be hand-separated from the buildings that are to remain. Wrecking Corp has razed hundreds of buildings in cramped urban areas, and is skilled in the dealing with the unique challenges such projects represent."
Three businesses will remain on the mall site: a branch of Bank of America, a CVS pharmacy, and a Safeway store. The project consists of razing 1.2 million square feet of concrete structure, plus 75,000 cubic yards of excavation, and 35,000 cubic yards of backfill. In addition, concrete crushing and recycling will be done on site.
