Government Services

US Department of State (DOS)

US Foreign Policy initiatives are generally the first forum in which the American tax dollar influences relations with other countries. Time is frequently of the essence in the negotiation and implementation of agreements between countries for elimination of weapons of mass destruction. CDI has, on several occasions, provided negotiation backup and field performance support for US Department of State Memorandums of Understanding (MOU’s) and Memorandums of Agreement (MOA’s) which are critical to US Government interests while working under fixed price contracts with the Nonproliferation and Disarmament Fund (NDF) office at the DOS, CDI eliminated Secret Category 1 missile fabrication and testing facilities in South Africa destroyed conventional, biological and nuclear capable Category 1 missile systems in Hungary, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and the Ukraine, and eliminated WMD/chemical and biological weapons production and storage facilities in central European, North African, Asian and the Pacific Rim countries. CDI has the technical expertise and international network of experts to assist in the budgeting and, subsequent, implementation of such intergovernmental agreements.

CDI also provided 80 non-US citizen EOD personnel in-country to inventory Libya’s weapons stockpile following the collapse of the Gaddafi Regime and technical program structure and budgetary reports for the elimination of North Korea’s chemical, biological, Category 1 and IBM missile delivery systems and their nuclear program to support USG disarmament negotiation with the DPRK in 2019.

US Department of Defense (DOD)

CDI has the appropriate experience and expertise to assist Department of Defense (DOD) agencies and contractors in demolition operations on sensitive projects, domestically and internationally. Through the support of our international network of regional relationships, CDI can respond promptly for defense-related consulting and performance requests.

CDI exported equipment like a complete Scud B rocket battalion from central Europe to the United States for the DIA in 1996 to support research on how to locate such equipment by satellite, during the Iraq war.

US Department of Energy (DOE)

Changes in the Department of Energy’s (DOE) mandate have called for the removal of thousands of structures at DOE sites spread across the United States. When fiscal constraints puts pressure on site managers to increasing decommissioning and dismantling productivity while reducing costs and making the safety of workers, the public or the environment the top priority, DOE officials looked for new technologies to make the transition while staying within budget. CDI’s DREXS (Directional Remote Explosives Severance) and explosives harmonic delamination and segmentation services on contaminated concrete surfaces safely enhanced production while reducing worker RAD exposure and unit costs on dozens of DOE projects.

US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

Since 1972, CDI has assisted the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in their vision to transform public housing into thriving, modern communities, through the demolition of sorely outdated, high-density/high-rise housing complexes. CDI has demolished over 200 high-rise public housing structures in the US, Europe and Asia, and has the necessary experience and community outreach abilities to safely and seamlessly further these critical government programs.
