            Charlotte based construction company, Choate, contracted DARI- Demolition & Asbestos Removal Inc. to perform an interior demolition on a 160,000 square foot building that entailed the removal of approximately 200,000 acoustical ceiling tile and grid, lighting, wall board/drywall systems, doors and frames, carpeted and ceramic flooring, millwork, mechanical, electrical, data networking and associated systems. DARI’s objective was to finish the interior strip-out on the 160,000 square foot building, and remove 300,000 square feet of dry wall, electrical wiring, HVAC units, and other debris…. all within 1 week. DARI was the company’s first choice due to the complex nature of the project and timeframe that the client needed the job completed in. Thanks to the experience of Charlotte Division Manager Jeff Feeley and Project Manager James McGee, with the help of Supervisors- Jose Reyes and Jose Hernadnez- the punch list on this Ballantyne project is almost 100% complete, and right on schedule!

Congratulations to Greensboro Division Manager, Chris Walker and his team for a successful abatement for longtime client, Duke Energy. In September of 2013, DARI- Demolition & Asbestos Removal Inc. was subcontracted to provide the abatement of a 340-MW power plant which included coal fired steam generating units and oil fired combustion turbine units, and ancillary facilities in Eden, North Carolina. Work included boiler, duct, and piping insulation; transite removal; roofing and caulking removal. DARI also removed NORM contaminated refractory from the boilers. Demo work included Boilers, CT Units, Turbines, Coal Yard Structures and Conveyor System, Selective Railroad Rail, Raw Water Storage Tank & Fuel Tank Abatement. This project called for tight environmental controls to ensure safe work along the Dan River. Walker, Project Manager, Harrison Hubard, and Project Supervisor, Lester Rivenbark, were successfully able to complete the rather difficult abatement in a safe and timely manner. Abatement was completed in November 2014. DARI will return to the site to do windows and gaskets when they are ready to demo the plant. D.H. Griffin Wrecking Inc. will continue to be on the site until Jan. 2016.

Stay tuned for updates….

Raleigh Division Manager, James London and Project Supervisor, Saul Mendoza, successfully completed an asbestos abatement job earlier this year at a DuPont de Nemours facility that was being decommissioned. The chemical plant, which is located in Kinston, North Carolina, began the decommission process in May of 2013. The project consisted of Asbestos abatement, and ACM removal in the tank farm area including the pipe rack, and Y3 upper areas, and was completed in July 2014. The entire project took about 10 months to complete. Hats off to all of the team members who were a part of this project! The team was able to successfully complete the complex tasks involved in a safe and professional manner in order to ensure repeat business with the longtime client.

In April of 2014, the DARI- Disaster Restoration Services division of DH Griffin Companies’  24 Hour Emergency Response crews responded to a call from a local daycare center, Child Care Network, located at 1405 Friendly Avenue, when a garbage truck crashed into their facility. The truck continued through the parking lot and crashed into the side of the building, and through the exterior brick wall. DARI’s Emergency Response crews were able to successfully secure the scene, and were also able to get the daycare back open for business by the next day. As a result of the success of this job, the client awarded the division a number of other Non- Emergency reconstruction jobs at their other facilities around North Carolina.

As many of you know, the Disaster Restoration division is fairly new to the DH Griffin Companies. They are fully certified Restoration Contractor specializing in; storm damage, water damage, fire & smoke restoration, mold remediation, and 24-Hour Emergency Response.

BOOM! Success! On June 1, 2014 DHGW was able to successfully implode the eleven-story Appalachian State University dorm, Winkler Hall, to rubble! DARI was contracted by the University to provide asbestos removal of entire 42,000 square feet of structure to prepare it for implosive demolition. DARI- Demolition & Asbestos Removal Inc., removed approximately 34,125 square feet of floor tile and mastic, 41,200 square feet ceiling surfacing, 52,875 square feet of joint compound/sheetrock and several hundred feet of asbestos containing thermal system insulation from piping throughout the structure. Most of the strip-out work on this project was done by DARI. DARI performed the majority of the strip-out work prior to abatement including desks, doors, drop ceilings, ect. DARI also removed bulk and ballasts, and universal wastes throughout the building during the strip-out process as well. 104 tons of ACM was removed, along with 13 tons of scrap metal, and 12 tons of C&D debris. Congratulations to Hickory Division Manager, Foyle Perkins, Project Manager, Nick Perkins, and Asbestos Supervisor, Mateo Adame for a job well done! Now the former residence hall site provides temporary green space for students after 96% of the debris has been recycled!
