Construction Update – Office Building Demolition

Work at Edgewater has been moving quickly since the groundbreaking, so we decided to provide an update on one of the projects down at the site. The crew recently began work on bringing down the office building located at the corner of College and Allegheny Avenues.

Please consult the site map below as a reference to photo location and direction.

We’ll begin this update with a photo of the intact former office building before moving into the demolition work.

The first photo of this group was taken from nearly the same location as the first overall photo and shows the beginning of the changes. The second shot provides a close up of the current state of the building.

Here are a few photos of the excavator in action as it works to bring down the 2-story, steel-framed building.

These shots provide an up close look at the building coming down. In the second photo, notice that the excavator is not using the customary bucket attachment. They are instead employing a hydraulic thumb, a more articulate piece of equipment, in order to grip certain objects.

Be sure to check back soon as we will be featuring more construction updates in the future. For further information please contact the Edgewater team at (412) 877-1055.

All photos can be viewed in a larger size in the gallery below.
