Our ability to offer multiple decommissioning services within a single organization positions our Team to provide decontamination and demolition services to our customers in a safe, timely, coordinated and cost effective manner. Our clients realize significant benefits by virtue of the fact that one contractor is held accountable for both decontamination and demolition efforts whereby project schedules are compressed, waste volumes are reduced, and cross and/or recontamination of clean areas are eliminated.

Our work ethic is centered on requiring strict control of all demolition processes, particularly in relation to safety and the control of hazardous materials. Our expertise in engineered controls enables operations to be conducted in a clean, comfortable, controlled environment that maximizes margins of environmental protection, worker safety and overall productivity. Our success translates into greater financial benefits for our clients, minimizes legal liability and results in a project delivered safely, compliantly and on time

DEMOLITION

Clauss Construction has been performing demolition and decontamination projects for more than 16 years. Most importantly, our ability to offer multiple decommissioning services within a single organization positions our team to provide decontamination and demolition services to the customer in a safe, timely, coordinated and cost effective manner. Our clients realize significant benefits by virtue of the fact that one contractor is held accountable for both decontamination and demolition efforts whereby project schedules are compressed, waste volumes are reduced, and cross and/or recontamination of clean areas are eliminated.

IMPLOSIONS

When someone mentions building demolition, Implosions usually come to mind. Explosive Demolition is one of the most exciting and anticipated means of demolition in the industry. Though it only accounts for a portion of the work we do, explosives demolition is an important tool to ensure the safe and effective demolition of structures where conventional methods pose greater risks.

Explosives demolition can be very precise and cause less disruption to surrounding neighbors than conventional methods. Clauss Construction works with the foremost experts in the explosives demolition industry to provide a comprehensive value added service to our customers.

We have safely managed explosive demolition operations in many high profile cases including:

Implosions of landmark Las Vegas hotels including the Desert Inn and Frontier Hotel Casino.
Explosive fracturing of large concrete structures including shield walls and parking structures.

Explosives demolition projects for Private Industry, The General Services Administration (GSA), and The Department of Energy (DOE).
Explosive demolition of Steel Stacks and Concrete Chimneys over 200 feet tall.

To keep equipment operators out of unnecessary and dangerous situations, we can provide selective demolition of most structural and non-structural items inside or outside a structure. Examples include safely bringing down large bridge cranes, tanks, shield walls, or other equipment to a safer working level.
