North Wind Site Services was recently awarded an $11.8 million cost reimbursable contract for the deconstruction of the former Production Building on the Luckey Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP) Site.
“North Wind is thrilled to be awarded this new contract at Luckey. We have a great partnership with our client and look forward to doing even more there,” said North Wind Site Services president, Kimberley Kearney.
The building is being removed to provide safe access to clean up soil underneath, which is contaminated with beryllium, radium-226, thorium-230, uranium-234, uranium-238, and lead.
The Production Building, which began to collapse earlier this year, was used for the production of beryllium from 1949 to 1958 under a contract with the Atomic Energy Commission.
Deconstruction is scheduled to begin in early 2021 and is estimated to take about one year to complete.
North Wind Portage continues soil remediation at the site. The Phase 1 excavation area was completed in July and excavation in the Phase 2 area is currently 38% complete.
