Project Scope:

A treasured television and film studio, consisted of 300,000 square feet of buildings and structures located on a 14-acre site. AMPCO was contracted to complete the demolition of the structures and site improvements throughout the facility. Additionally, contracted for the excavation and export of 90,000+ CY of arsenic impacted dirt to prepare the site for a new 3 story underground in preparation for Amazon.

We have safely abated and demolished a 5 story building with more 220,000 square feet of film studios, offices of a steel and concrete office building and 77,000 square feet of parking structure.

Means and Methods:

The demolition consisted of the complete demolition of thirteen structures totaling 300,000 square feet and 165,000 square feet of site asphalt, concrete and landscaping, using a high-reach excavator, support excavators and other heavy demolition equipment. All building slabs, footings and underground utilities were removed, with all demolition debris removed from the site. We removed existing beam with a high reach with extra safety precautions in place because the beams had to be lifted (over 50ft) and removed.

Challenges Faced:

Residential neighborhood with houses surrounding site, within 10-20 feet of 60-ft. high buildings walls that were being demolished. While dust, noise and vibration concerns are a challenge on most projects, the very close vicinity of the neighboring homes was a major safety concern. AMPCO deployed the proper type and amount of equipment and manpower so that these tall building walls were demolished safely without any incidents.

City of Citrus Heights

AMPCO efforts resulted in a cohesive controlled demolition site, a detailed SWPP’s and a public complaint free project. The scope of work was completed ahead of schedule at cost savings to the City.
