When it comes to industrial demolition projects, Bluegrass robotic hammering services offer mobility, precision and efficient breaking results with a fleet of Brokk robotic hammers. Bluegrass operates multiple sized units in our inventory, which gives us the ability to break or modify concrete structures into any size and shape on any work site. As controlled demolition contractors for nearly three decades, Bluegrass brings extensive concrete cutting and breaking experience to every industrial demolition project we take on.
Based on past project successes, Associated Brigham Contractors contracted Bluegrass in 2007 to dismantle concrete stands, remove concrete sections from the electric furnace foundation and retrofit existing concrete structures at different points in the newly acquired Nucor steel mill in Memphis Tennessee. Because the integrity of remaining concrete structures needed to be maintained, flat and diamond wire sawing methods were used and robotic hammering precision was key.
Bluegrass concrete cutting and breaking technicians used diamond wire sawing to cut 1,000 square feet of concrete and flat sawing to cut 1,500 linear feet of concrete. Robotic hammering was then used to hammer 1,800 cubic yards of concrete for removal. The project was completed on time, under budget and without accident. Even with the large amounts of concrete slated for demolition, Brokk robotic hammering equipment provided ease of use, efficiency and mobility and simplified the task of removing concrete.
If your controlled demolition project requires the mobility, efficiency and ease of use Brokk robotic hammering provides, contact Bluegrass and our experienced project managers and engineers will craft a custom solution for you.
Robotic hammering is just one industrial demolition techniques Bluegrass can use when creating controlled demolition solutions for tricky or difficult cuts. Here are some examples of our most recent modifications and breaking:
Cement - Concrete cutting and robotic hammering of baghouses, electric motor foundations, ID fan foundations, kiln foundations, and structural piers.
Steel Mills - Industrial demolition of caster foundations, cooling beds, mill stand foundations, pickle line foundations, re-heat furnaces, compressor pumps, refractory, and roll mill upgrades.
Pulp and Paper Mills - Controlled demolition of floors, paper machine rebuilds, pit creations, tile chests, u-drains, kilns, base plates, and wood yard foundations.
Power Plants - Industrial demolition techniques for segmenting ball mills, cooling beds, ID fan foundations, pulverizer foundations, silos, and wet scrubbers.
