General Project Scope:

HOMRICH was contracted to perform the selective demolition and abatement at Wells Hall on the Michigan State’s University Campus.

Some key factors for the project are:

  • 29,000 square foot selective demolition of existing lecture halls and structural components to allow for expansion.
  • Abatement of pipe, fittings, and floor tile.
  • Due to the tight confines of the project and leading-edge work (fall hazards), HOMRICH utilized a demolition robot that is controlled remotely from a safe vantage point.
  • HOMRICH was contracted to salvage approximately 1,400 lecture seats and store them off-site for future use.
  • HOMRICH also had to salvage several miscellaneous items for the owner to be used at a later date.
  • Installed shoring and bracing so opening could be cut to allow for new structural steel placement.
