Deconstruction Offers Green Solution within Demolition

Posted by

Casey-Bertram was recently mentioned in an article by Kaley Belakovich, a reporter from Angies List, which talks about how deconstruction in Indy offers a green alternative within the demolition industry. Scott Casey, the President of Casey-Bertram is mentioned in the article and talks about how even if something cannot be reused Casey-Bertram always strives to recycle as much material as possible. Not only is recycling good for the environment by keeping materials out of the landfill, but also saves us money. Some items such as water heaters and AC units are able to be salvaged and resold in our salvage store. Click here for the link to the article.

Hubbard Feed & Grain Mill Slated for Demolition

Posted by

The building that stood at 9400 Corporation Drive was originally constructed in 1965 by Hubbard Feed & Grain. Three years later, in 1968, Hubbard decided to add an office and a warehouse to help store and facilitate grain sales. The lot is 4.71 acres and the mill was approximately 39,000 square feet in size and stood close to 130 feet in the air.

In late summer of 2012 Casey-Bertram Demolition was awarded the job at 9400 Corporation Drive in Indianapolis. In October of 2012 demolition commenced to bring down the 130 foot tall grain mill.  Since the grain mill was too tall for an excavator to safely bring down the structure, a crane and wrecking ball were brought in to do the job.

After taking the structure down to a safe level, excavators started to gnaw away at what was remaining, until finally bringing down what was left. While all the demolition was taking place, it was important that our operators separate the material into separate piles such as trash, concrete/block, and steel. The separation of materials is important because Casey-Bertram Demolition aims to reduce the amount of trash and reuse or recycle what is leftover.

Once the trash and steel had been hauled off site, Bulldog Crushing was contracted to crush all of the remaining concrete and asphalt that had been on the site. The crushed concrete/asphalt will be used as backfill on the site to help with drainage and grading.

Casey-Bertram adds new magnet to processing equipment

Posted by

Casey-Bertram is excited to announce the newest piece of processing equipment – Moley Magnets ESA 50.

In today’s demolition industry, it is important for a company to be efficient in all facets while on a jobsite. Casey-Bertram has taken another step forward in becoming more efficient by adding an electromagnet to its processing equipment.

Retrieving every piece of scrap metal possible from a jobsite means more savings for our customers and less trash in the landfills. In the past we would use laborers to sort through the debris piles to separate the scrap metal from the trash. This was all done by hand, which is very labor intensive. Since obtaining the new magnet, we are able to spread the debris pile thinly across the ground and sweep the magnet over top, picking up scrap metal in a matter of seconds, rather than hours.

Moley-Magnet ESA 50

Cold Mag KWVoltageWeightDiameterHeight H1Height H2GPMPSISlab In gotPIG IronTurnings
7.222036385027.56324 to 52 203030,850 lb1320 lb665 lb

    

The Moley-Magnet ESA 50 is a fully enclosed hydraulic magnet. This magnet is ideal for demolition, because it fits easily onto existing equipment and is rugged enough to take the constant beating of being on a demolition jobsite. Time is money!

Benefits:

  1. Completely enclosed system – pump, generator, and control box are mounted on the top of the magnet
  2. Easy to hook up the cables and get started
  3. Available in multiple sizes and can easily lift 1500+ lbs.

Old Woodfield Center to be Converted to Mixed Used Living

Posted by

 

Woodfield Center was constructed in 1988 and has had several different tenants throughout the 25 years of it being open. Unfortunately, it has not attracted many customers due to it being blocked by an on ramp to I-465 and below the 86th Street grading. It is in a prime location that is only minutes away from the Keystone at the Crossing Mall.

Luckily, before the construction of the new development could take place there had to be demolition. That is where Casey-Bertram Demolition came into the picture. Casey-Bertram was awarded the demolition contract by Shiel Sexton, the general contractor of the project.

The old Woodfield Center was a one story retail center made of wood, concrete, and steel. The strip mall consisted of 2 “L” shaped buildings, one on top of the other, to create a square. The buildings were separated by a shipping lane that opened up to the rear of each shop.

The new development that is going to be going into this site looks to be very promising for the area as it will boast a restaurant along with retail on the first floor and 3 stories of living space above that. To allow the tenants that are moving into the building room to park, there will be an underground parking area. The building will be named IronWorks and resemble a more traditional look with an up-to-date feel.

Casey-Bertram started demolition by starting on the Northeast corner of the building and following the shape of the building around the complex. Casey-Bertram utilized excavators to methodically knock down components of the building. These components were then separated into piles as deconstruction took place. The use of a skid-steer helped to keep the jobsite and slab that was left behind clear of hazards and debris. After the buildings were completely taken down the excavators were used to tear up the concrete slab and footers that were buried in the ground.

Casey-Bertram Demolition is always proud to be a part of projects that help to grow and expand local economies, which in turn helps bring in new businesses to the surrounding Indianapolis areas.

Grain Elevator Demolition (Carmel, Indiana)Casey-Bertram (C-B) was contracted by the Carmel Redevelopment Commission to raze the 140’ feet tall grain elevator along the Monon Trail in Carmel, Indiana. C-B had to protect existing utilities from getting damaged in the process of bringing down the massive 100 year old concrete structure.  There were live fiber optic lines, as well as other utilities within 10 feet of the structure. Casey-Bertram used a conventional crane to bring down the top 100 feet, then using an excavator with a hydraulic hammer and a concrete pulverizer to process the concrete to load and haul off site.
