Evansville Main Street Buildings

Evansville, IN

To make way for the new LEED Silver Evansville Arena, seven structures required removal. The challenge was not in the demolition , it was the schedule. Hunt Construction Group set a completion date that allowed only three weeks for building demolition, foundation removal, and structural backfill of remaining voids. To minimize impact to the surrounding construction, all seven buildings were brought down in six hours during an evening shift. Klenck Company turned over this project 12 days ahead of schedule. To further illustrate the crew’s ability—the contents of the building were recycled or reused at a rate of 63% by weight.
