When the effective usefulness of your facility is coming to an end, it’s time to consider utilizing a decommissioning service. At EZ Scrap Metal Recycling Services, we have the skills and experience necessary to effectively close your facility or prepare it to be moved.
The Advantages of Decommissioning a Structure
There is a myriad of reasons to decommission a building. It may be to protect the structure and its systems, or the surrounding environment. It may also serve as a way to limit costs, mitigate the potential for risks, or to prepare the building for a new purpose.
Strategic Decommissioning in Chicago
As the needs of your business change, so do your needs for certain equipment, machinery, and facilities. Closing and dismantling a facility takes more than simply locking the doors and then tearing them down. In order to make the decommissioning process cost-effective and environmentally conscious, there needs to be some planning in place. Our scrap metal recycling and dismantling specialists are happy to help you develop a well thought-out process that will make the decommissioning of a factory, warehouse, or distribution facility streamlined and simple.
We can help prepare your building for decommissioning by:
- Shutting down and disconnecting utilities, HVAC, and security systems
- Limiting exposure to the elements
- Temporarily reinforcing weakened structures and supports
- Removing hazardous materials or built up debris
- Recycling scrap metal
