North Wind has developed the capabilities to plan and execute large-scale demolitions of complex and contaminated facilities in a safe and compliant manner.

Additionally, North Wind performs radiological decontamination and/or stabilization in support of demolition or free release. Within the past 5 years, North Wind has decontaminated over 250,000 square feet of floor space, over 1 million square feet of overhead space (e.g., walls, structural steel, ceilings, etc.), and has performed selective decontamination or application of fixative to radiological contamination in more than 18 facilities to support open-air demolition.
