“The Environmental Excellence Awards recognize NDA member companies which are true leaders in the area of environmental stewardship,” said Michael R. Taylor, CAE, Executive Director of the NDA. “Environmental stewardship is one of the demolition industry’s primary missions and these winning projects help illustrate truly dramatic efforts our members have made to make this a reality and improve the quality of life in their communities. By removing abandoned housing, demolishing dilapidated industrial facilities, preparing commercial space for productive reuse, maximizing recycling opportunities, and cleaning up toxic waste sites, demolition companies are making way for fresh vibrant places to grow.”
Adamo Group was recognized as an integral part of a project team responsible for the decommissioning and demolition of a chemical manufacturing facility. “CH2M HILL’s project at the chemical facility is a testament to safe, sustainable project execution in the decommissioning and demolition industry,” Taylor said. Since early 2012, general contractor CH2M HILL has orchestrated a project team consisting of Adamo Demolition and four other companies to decommission and demolish facility units and associated infrastructure deemed obsolete or outmoded. The project team has worked safely to decommission, demolish, and recycle more than 15,750 tons of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and has expended more than 240,000 man-hours while maintaining an excellent record of safety and environmental compliance.
“Adamo Group is honored to be recognized by its peers for excellence in environmental conservation and community improvement,” said John Adamo, Jr. “We were able to combine our 50 years of demolition experience and expertise with the project team to successfully and safely complete a challenging project. Everyone involved should be very proud of what we were able to accomplish together as a team.”
