Traditional top-down removal of tall chimneys, windscreens and steel stacks put workers at risk and the schedule at the mercy of weather conditions for extended periods. The height of the structure, and its potential reach should an unplanned collapse occur, put facilities to remain at risk, as well.
CDI has removed over a thousand chimneys, windscreens and steel stacks, internationally. Our experience is second to none in the industry, and helps ensure that every project is precisely executed according to plan.
CDI’s controlled, remote felling process guarantees worker safety by eliminating the need to work in high places. Our methods are designed for speed and efficiency, so that exposure of personnel and facilities to remain is reduced to a brief, pre-planned window of time selected to minimize impact on adjacent operations.
The safety of our approach is even more critical when damaged structures increase risk to workers and the surrounding site or community. Whether a structure is 100 or more than 1000 feet tall, made of brick, concrete or steel, CDI can safely bring it to grade in a matter of seconds with just a few days of preparation.
