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!
