This Washington State University project was the first phase of a two-phase facilities renovation program. The scope of work performed by NCM at Martin Stadium comprised two substantial structural demolition components along precision concrete cutting.
The most unique aspect of this project was the level of precision required. This was not a total removal but rather a surgical structural deconstruction of the press box, leaving the existing foundational podium upon which it sat, intact. The engineered demolition approach, designed in collaboration with Grid Engineering, allowed NCM to disassemble the press box in a highly methodical, controlled and safe manner. Successful completion of this...
RECYCLE, RECYCLE, RECYCLE. Concurrent to the efforts of our crews at Press Box level who dismantled the structure and rigged it to be flown down by crane, NCM established "lay-down" areas at ground level for the processing and load out of materials. These designated areas facilitated the sorting and hauling of delineated debris to appropriate recycling locations and fulfillment of LEED goals.
SAFETY IS NO ACCIDENT Working two shifts a day, NCM was able to complete this work in 8 weeks without a single safety incident! In addition to the reviewing of JHAs (Job Hazard Analysis) and consistent with NCM policy, on each day, during each shift, crews conducted a "Stretch and Flex" sessions and a "Tool Box Talks" to keep them physically and mentally prepared for their days.

NCM was the essential force in the scrapping and disposal of the mothball fleet of ships pulled from Suisun Bay (near San Francisco). The work included the SS Solon Turman and the SS Lincoln (launched as the President Lincoln).
