Humboldt Redwood Company, Scotia Operations Demolition Project
Humboldt Redwood Company owns and operates the sawmill complex and power plant complex in the town of Scotia. There are several abandoned or partially abandoned structures on the north end of the sawmill complex and the south end of the power plant complex that HRC proposes to demolish an estimated 9-12 months total to complete. The buildings proposed for demolition will be systematically dismantled and taken apart starting at one end of the structure and working from top to bottom to the other end of the structure. Foundations will be demolished down to the existing ground surface (not fully excavated and removed). Concrete ground level and basement ground level floors and pinching, shearing, or crushing structural components and/or deconstruction (where structures are taken apart in the reverse order in which they were constructed). These methods allow a large percentage of removed material to be reused, repurposed, or recycled (reclaimed), with only a small percentage of materials going to landfills. Following demolition, the site will be filled, as necessary, to its final grade. Tools and equipment used for demolition and dismantling may include: cranes, hydraulic excavators with demolition attachments, skid-steer loaders, forklifts, and power and hand tools. Filling and final grading will involve the use of heavy equipment, consistent with the types of equipment regularly used at the site (loaders, dump trucks, etc.).
