Fluor was part of the LSRS team responsible for the K-33 Building Demolition and Disposition.
The team cleared an 80-foot perimeter around the building and removed 100 percent of the asbestos-based siding on the building. The asbestos was sent to the DOE's Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) landfill in Oak Ridge.
After the removal and disposition of the asbestos, the demolition of the K-33 Building began.
After the massive structure was demolished, the concrete slab under the building was removed, and the debris segregated and sized for disposal.
By the time the project was finished, approximately 215,000 cubic meters of steel and concrete debris were shipped to the landfill, which equates to 18,400 truckloads of material, or 225,000 tons of material.
