While it does not set out to do so, the demolition component of Tervita Corporation’s Environmental Services division is used to turning heads. The company, after all, recently lifted a Cat 325 excavator to the top of an eight-story building to demo it from the top down, undoubtedly prompting stares – and a stiff neck or two. On a recently-completed project in the Alberta oil sands, the division performed an even more impressive feat, dismantling some truly mammoth structures and equipment and processing the more than 25,000 tons of steel it represented within a tight 110-day window. To make that happen, they assembled a fleet of mobile hydraulic attachments, including some of the largest Genesis mobile shears at work today. In the process, they further solidified their reputation as one of Canada’s preeminent firms for safe, effective and impressive demolition results.
