EquipNet has updated its widely-used Facility Closure Resource Center with tips and best practices for manufacturers planning a demolition project. When companies need to demolish a building, they have to juggle many concerns, including safety, scheduling, permits, environmental effects, impact on operations, and more. Often, they get so focused on these details that they forget to ask some simple questions… and end up leaving money--sometimes hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars--on the table.
The new Demolition section of the EquipNet Facility Closure Resource Center at http://www.EquipNet.com/Demo-PR anticipates and answers these critical questions to help companies maximize returns and minimize risk when demolishing all or part of their manufacturing operations. The multimedia website offers case studies of best practices from leading firms; a glossary of common demolition terms; and two free eBooks with pre-demolition tips from demolition experts.
EquipNet’s Vice President of Corporate Marketing, Matthew Smith, first noticed the trend toward complete and partial demolition when working with leading companies closing their manufacturing facilities. “Without equipment expertise and a pre-demolition plan,” says Smith, “these companies were often at the mercy of demolition contractors. When the building is toppled, the equipment was just an afterthought, transformed into scrap metal that was only worth a portion of its actual value.”
“We realized that these manufacturers could benefit from our demolition experience to properly create a pre-demolition strategy. Working with project partners and equipment specialists, we developed this new chapter in EquipNet’s growing library of resource center materials.”
