Adamo Leading the Pack in Detroit Residential Blight Removal
Adamo Group began demolishing blighted and abandoned homes in July as part of the City’s six-year long blight blitz. Just four months later, Adamo has removed nearly 800 blighted structures – leading the pack at 38%. Adamo is utilizing 325 excavators to level the structures and load the debris into trucks, and bulldozers for backfilling and grading. Six to eight crews, consisting of two to three workers per crew, are operating six days per week, 10 hours per day to meet the project’s aggressive timeline. Additional Section 3 qualified employees and Detroit residents were hired to perform the extra work. With phase I of the blight blitz wrapping up, Adamo crews are making final grades and site restorations to parcels where hundreds of blighted homes stood just weeks ago.
