The demolition plan of this job had several phases. The first required Environmental Cleansing Corporation (ECC) to demolish thirty percent (30%), (over 200,000 square feet) of an existing two story mall building in its entirety; phase two was to provide selective demolition and interior gutting (400000 square feet) of remaining area of mall and former Wieboldt's building; phase three was the excavation for new building foundations and footings and mass excavation of parking lot totaling 100,000 cubic yards of material.

Environmental Cleansing Corporation (ECC) on its' own behalf, notifies J.U.L.I.E. prior to any excavation or below grade demolition to allow utility marking. The dig number from J.U.L.I.E. is recorded and becomes a permanent part of the demolition files.

All glass was removed to avoid the hazards from fragmentation, as they exist at the job site. Except where necessary, (non-identified), demolition began at the top of the structure and proceeded downward i.e., roof, top of exterior walls, second floor, lower walls, first floor foundation. Each level of demolition was completed prior to progressing to the next lower level. Debris was dropped through holes in the floor and walls in areas protected by a minimum six (6) foot setback and barricaded on all sides of exposure to a height of 42 inches. Warning signs of falling materials were posted at each level. Steel construction was dismantled by column length and tier-by-tier.
