Protection of Existing Property:
• Before beginning any demolition work, the Contractor shall visually inspect the site
   to determine the extent of the work. The Contractor shall take all-reasonable
   precautions to avoid damage to existing items, which are, to remain in place.

   construction and demolition debris. The hazardous materials shall be safely and
   properly collected, labeled, stored and disposed of by the Contractor.
• Categories and Types of Materials to be Collected Prior to Demolition:
          o As described earlier, the goal is to collect hazardous materials that are

             C&D landfill. The following are typical of items that are required for
             removal prior to demolition activity at the residence. Items may be
             located inside or outside the houses. This list may not be all-inclusive and
             the County may direct the Contractor to collect other items that may be of
             an environmentally sensitive nature. The Contractor shall dispose of
             category D items, to the Landfill as a segregated material. Only materials
             approved by the County as part of this sweep shall be collected and
             stored. All other material shall be hauled and disposed of as required

BURNING
• The use of burning at the project site for the disposal of refuse and debris will not be
  permitted.

Use of Explosives
• Use of explosives will not be permitted.

Tree protection
Tree protection barricades should be placed around the drip line of all protected trees
marked for preservation prior to any land disturbance or demolition activity. Barriers are
to remain until all site work has been completed.

Tree protection technique (barricades etc) diagrams should be shown on site plan

No grading or clearing by heavy equipment should happen under the drip line of
protected trees to remain on the site. Storage of heavy equipment shall not occur under
the drip line of protected trees on site.

No “protected trees” will be removed, destructively damaged, mutilated, relocated,
disfigured, destroyed, cut down, or excessively pruned during construction activities
(LDC 7.01.03.C1).

Demolition Process
The following general steps shall be followed at each residence prior to beginning
demolition.
      a. Review safety procedures
      b. Verify that electrical, gas, and water supply are turned off upstream from the
      house.
      c. Remove each lead vent flashing on the roof of the house. Do not mix with
      general C&D material.
      d. Initiate dust control measures.
      e. Remove any obstructive material around the house that will interfere or slow
      down the demolition process. If debris is generated, load it on the trailers for
      hauling to the landfill. Minimize any soil removed.
      f. For houses on concrete slabs, use the Track excavator to push in the walls
      onto the floor. Once the walls are in and the roof is down, make several passes
      over the material (if it can be done safely) with the track excavator to crush the
      material.
      g. Continue to crush the material as feasible.
      h. With the demolition equipment, keep as much of the material atop the slab for
      removal. Push the material to towards the center of the slab and begin removal
      with the front-end loader and track excavator. Remove the material and place as
      compact as possible into the hauling trailer(s). The goal is to limit impact on the
      soil and to remove as little soil as possible with the general debris.

PD 08-09.078, Clarinda Triangle Demolition and Asbestos Surveys


      i. Once the material is sufficiently removed from the concrete slab, the mini-
      excavator can begin to burst or crack the slab into small and liftable sections.
      Again, the goal is to remove the slab with as little soil adhered to the bottom as
      possible.
      j. If sufficient room is available in the hauling trailers after loading the previous
      debris, the concrete can be placed therein for removal.
      k. Using grapplers, remove foundation walls associated with floating concrete
      slabs. Use the equipment as necessary to prevent removal of excess soils while
      removing the walls. Broken walls and wall footings which are 6-inches or more
      below the existing general grade may remain.
      l. With dust control measures still in place and operating, mounded soil below
      the former slabs shall be spread evenly on the site to match the existing natural
      grades.
      m. Houses on piers shall be removed without passing tracked equipment over
      the pile. Knock the house down with the grapplers and clutch and drop debris
      into the trailer without gravity crushing. After the floor is removed, reach and
      remove piers to grade level or slightly below. Skirt walls around or under houses
      on piers shall be removed also with care to minimize attached soil. Remove any
      remaining debris and provide minimal grading to match existing grade.
      n. An entire unit shall be completely demolished and loaded prior to proceeding
      to the next unit. If desired by the Contractor, site grading can be done at the end
      of the entire demolition.
      o. Pushed up pipe or piping shall be cut off a minimum of six inches below
      grade.

FILLING:
• Holes and other hazardous openings shall be filled with suitable soil in 12-inch lifts
   and compacted. All graded and scared areas shall be seeded and mulched with
   common Bermuda grass.

Disposal of all material shall be in accordance with State of Florida Department of
Environmental Protection regulations for construction and debris (C&D) solid wastes.
All material shall be disposed only in currently licensed and certified C&D Florida
landfills. The landfill selected for this pilot project is to be determined within the PMP.
Debris shall be stacked, packed, removed, and transported in a manner consistent with
the rules for: City of Pensacola; Escambia County; State of Florida Department of
Transportation; and FDEP requirements. Contractor shall insure that any extra
precautions necessary to prevent
