Pier 19 Demolition at the Ambassador Bridge
Adamo was contracted to remove Pier 19 at the $230 million Gateway Project.
Pier 19 needed to come down quickly and with absolute accuracy, hence the use of the APEX 70 Ultra High Demolition (UHD) Hydraulic Excavator. There was only a small window of time to remove the 65 foot tall pier which was located within a few feet of the existing Ambassador Bridge.
Adamo was able to remove the pier in half the time at half the cost of traditional removal methods while keeping the Ambassador Bridge operational during the demolition due to the precision of the 8,000 pound hydraulic hammer attachment.
