Six Barrel Concrete Silo Demolition

Mt. Vernon, IN

The 155’ tall riverfront concrete silo has stood in Mt. Vernon, Indiana since 1953. With the assistance of federal grants and city fundraisers, Klenck Company will be changing the riverfront skyline shortly. The silo was coated with a silver asbestos paint and needs to be removed before demolition can start. Once the structure is down, the clean concrete will reduced in size and utilized as roadbed on future projects and the steel reinforcing bar will be recycled at our scrap yard. A GPS equipped bulldozer will place the surrounding landscape to grade and a retaining wall will be built. The City plans a fantastic new park and Klenck Company is pleased to be a part of our community’s project.
