- Averaging 11 crews per day over the last five years.
- Completing an average of 25 houses per week.
- 30% of demolitions occur in tight quarters adjacent to occupied residential/commercial structures.
- 40% of demolitions are Class 1 “ordered demolitions” due to asbestos debris scattered through structures.
- Restoration work includes topsoil, seed, curb, and sidewalk replacements.
- Continuing to meet production goals and timelines.
The DLBA has an additional 25,000 structures to demolish over the next five years. HOMRICH anticipates supporting this effort through 2024.
