-- R. Baker & Son worked closely with the owner of a large three-story building during a recent interior demolition project to develop a dust, noise and vibration schedule. Occupied office buildings surrounded the structure, so noisy activities like pneumatic hammering and use of heavy equipment was limited to a three-hour span from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., followed by cleanup and low-noise tasks between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Dust was controlled by water misting and exhaust fan particle filtering to keep the space negative, preventing infiltration to other areas.
One of the client's biggest concerns was preventing odor from permeating a nearby building with 100% outside air intakes that shared a courtyard space with the building being demolished. After some brainstorming, the Baker team addressed the issue by purchasing and installing ¾-inch thick rolled pre-activated carbon filter media on the intakes to capture particulates and absorb odor. The filtration was checked daily and replaced on a weekly basis during demolition and cleanup phases. The client was duly impressed with the care and ingenuity applied to their project. "Every project has specific challenges", says R. Baker & Son owner David Baker, "and providing solutions for those challenges is where customers find value."
