VAB Platform Demolition
Ivey's scope of work included: preparation of engineered critical lift plans, non-destructive testing of the existing lifting lugs, removing connections for electricity, water, pneumatics, fire protection, etc., rigging and lowering the platforms to the ground, transportation of the platforms outside the VAB, asbestos and hazardous paint abatement, and finally the demolition and salvage of the individual platforms outside the VAB.
