Darrell Maclean SMI Wins Asbestos Abatement and Demolition Contract At Morton School, Fall River, MA

Darrell Maclean and Charles Smith of Southern Middlesex Industries (SMI), an Environmental Remediation Company, have won the project to tear down the old Morton Middle School building in suburban Fall River, Massachusetts.

 
PRLog - Aug. 2, 2011 - NORWOOD, Mass. -- Darrell Maclean commented, “We are delighted to win the project to demolish the old school building and environmentally clean up the whole site prior to the rebuilding of a new school.”

In March 2010, Marc Munroe Dion of The Herald News first reported that decisions were being made by Executive Director Katherine Craven of the Massachusetts School Board Authority (MSBA), the town mayor of Fall River, Will Flanagan, and the local School Superintendent, Meg Mayo-Brown, to finally demolish the old Morton Middle School and build a new more modern school.

“The challenge for SMI in the first phase of the project is first to ensure we remove all the potential environmental contaminants, which is largely asbestos, but may also include some heavy metals such as mercury and lead and possibly some pcb containing materials. We can then start the interior demolition before we move to pulling the whole building down.” Said Darrell Maclean of SMI, before adding, “However, the biggest concern is the underground storage tanks and just what we may find when we remove them – hopefully no spills.”

The demolition of the 75 year old, 168,000 square foot old school on two and a half acres of land, and building of the new school, is estimated to be a $63 million project that will take two years to complete. Eligible for a state reimbursement of up to 80% of the costs, it is estimated that the city will have to find approximately $12 to $15 million. Visit:

After some last minute bickering over the size of the school, final approval was finally given in March 2011 so that work could finally start this year with a view to completing the project in time for the start of the school year in September 2013. Visit:

Darrell Maclean, commented, “We are delighted to have been given this sizeable project and can’t wait to get started.  We have a plan ready based on the building site inspections and we are confident that we will complete the work on time and on budget. If the underground tanks require additional abatement activities because of leaks, we are ready to address it immediately and make sure the site is environmentally contaminant free ready for the start of construction of the new school. This project has been a long time in planning and the whole community is excited to see their new school erected.”
