Demolition Completed located at 127 Willow Branch St.
The property was leveled and most of the waste was recycled. The project consisted of a Concrete structure, a 4oft. storage box and miscellaneous scrap metal. The project was completed within three days.
Building Demolition Process
Different steps are involved in the process of demolition of building structures which are:
- Removal of hazardous materials
- Preparation of plan
- Safety measures
Surveying of Buildings for Demolition
Surveying means study of different parameters of the structure and its surroundings. There are two types of surveying are mainly conducted. They are
- Building surveying
- Structural surveying
1. Building Surveying
In survey of buildings for demolition, following process are carried out:
- Types of construction material used
- Usage of building prior and present during demolition.
- The presence of wastewater, hazardous materials, matters arising from toxic chemicals, flammable or explosive and radioactive materials, etc.
- Drainage conditions and possible problems on water pollution, flooding and erosion.
- Shared facilities with adjoining building, including common staircases, partition walls.
- Adjoining pedestrian and vehicular traffic conditions
- The sensitivity of neighborhood with respect to noise, dust, vibration and traffic impact.
2. Structural Surveying
In structural survey, following process are involved in demolition:
- The method of construction
- The structural system and structural conditions of basements, underground tanks or underground vaults.
- The original structural system employed in the design.
- The condition of the building.
Removal of Hazardous Materials
If hazardous materials like asbestos minerals, petroleum contamination, and radioactive metals are found in the investigation of site for demolition. Specialized personals are called for the removal of the hazardous materials from the site prior to the demolition of structure.
Preparation of Demolition Plan for Structures
A detailed demolition plan is made which illustrates the different process involved and they are:

The diesel shops were built in the WWII years. By the end of the war, a new 165 foot turntable was in place at the steam shops. The yards were greatly increased both in the circa “teens” and again in the late “40’s”.� Seaboard was already pioneering their demise. The Gross Cut-Off to Callahan and Baldwin were taking more and more freight through without another sort.
The shops became the home for almost all of the SEABOARD “ALCO” (American Locomotive Works) and “BALDWIN” diesels. The last of these, Alco, quit the business starting with a sell to Worthington Corp in 1964, they built their last diesels in the early 70’s. They were then folded into Studebaker-Worthington subsidiary MONTREAL loco works. But MLW, didn’t get any US orders from SCL.
As a specialist in Alco and Baldwin locomotives, WEST JAX did it all. These engines had one other thing that EMD (GM), or GE diesels lacked. Pound for pound it was said they could pull the socks off an equal power locomotive from the latter builders. They could also track better, and SCL wasn’t known for good track – sadly CSX still suffers from this mind set. Hundreds of miles of branchlines in your home town area were — HORRIBLE. But an old Alco would somehow dance along the rails with the train, another locomotive would be up to the foot plates in dirt.
When Rice Yard opened in Waycross, it was really Jacksonville’s yard moved to a less congested junction. That move coupled with massive post regulation abandonment’s spelled the end of West Jax. Remember railyards are train, time AND money killers.
WEST JAX is now a superfund site, home of CSX security – Railroad Police, train dispatching, and the company’s office train cars.
