ACECO is the area’s leader in specialized selective structural demolition. From removing concrete stairs, elevated slabs, mezzanines, elevator machine room floors, or entire portions of a structure without impacting adjacent areas, we can do it all. Our specialized tools, equipment, and highly-trained staff, combined with years of experience ensure that we can perform the most difficult structural modifications to any building. We have performed such work at the Main Treasury Building, the National Archives, the Capitol Building, the Cannon House Office Building, and many other Federal landmarks, active hospitals, and private sensitive projects. Utilizing the most advanced methods of debris containment and dust control, access equipment, engineering, and shoring, we can perform any complex structural modifications your project requires without disturbing tenants, patients, or surrounding facilities.
ACECO is adept at performing all types of interior and exterior architectural demolition, from removal of finishes and non-structural walls and partitions, to storefronts and entryways; from glass curtain wall systems to masonry, steel, or precast concrete facades. Our architectural demolition crews have performed complex historic salvage and protection work, cataloguing and crating specific features for re-use or preservation, and even careful removal of finishes atop historic paintings, murals, and frescoes. Our projects in this field range from the complete interior strip-out of high rise buildings among active tenant floor spaces to complete façade removal of occupied and fully in-service buildings in downtown Metro DC areas. We are diligent about separation of all resulting debris, with intense focus on recycling to the greatest extent possible. We typically achieve over 75% recycling (LEED) values on our selective interior and exterior architectural demolition projects.
ACECO has been performing complete building demolition since 1936. Our technical capabilities allow us to safely and productively demolish structures whether they are free-standing with easy access on all sides, are in sensitive areas, or are surrounded by other structures which cannot be disturbed. We utilize the most recent advances in dust control, noise and vibration control, and personnel safety to ensure that all building demolition projects are performed with total control of all variables. With our extensive fleet of extended-reach excavators equipped with grappling, crushing, and shearing jaws, our many types of BROKK robotic demolition tools, and our experienced and safety-conscious workforce, we can provide the services needed for any building demolition project. Our portable concrete crushing/recycling plant can even process structural concrete and masonry into re-useable aggregate products for use on your site. We typically achieve over 95% recycling (LEED) values on our complete building demolition projects.
