Demolition of Former RCA Plant

Posted by on Feb 15, 2017 in Recent Projects | Comments Off on Demolition of Former RCA Plant

Denney Companies is pleased to partner with the City of Indianapolis, along with other groups as part of the Demolition and Blight Reduction Program. The former RCA Plant at one point employed more than 8,000 people before closing some time ago.

In the ensuing 20 years, many developments have been proposed for the 49 acre site but have all fallen through, leaving the property located at East Michigan Street and Sherman Drive a neighborhood eyesore.  Demolition of the former Plant started in January 2017.

Due to the expansion of Community Hospital East, Denney Excavating had the opportunity to demolish the Hilton North Hotel located. Located on East Shadeland Avenue, this hotel hosted the famous New England Patriots during the most recent Superbowl in Indianapolis. Doing demolition so close to an active hospital was very tricky, but being an ASHE Health Care Construction (HCC)Subcontractor helped guide us significantly. The High Reach Excavator had to be brought in to reach the higher floors.

This 2 million square foot manufacturing facility was originally built in the 1930’s for Chevrolet. Closed in 2011, the building sat vacant for years. Denney Excavating was contracted to demolish most of buildings on this 102 acre site. The project started in Dec 2013 and was completed in 2015. The average demolition per week was 49,000 square feet of building footprint. A large portion of the plant was recycled including the metal, overhead cranes, wood block flooring, circuit breakers, and the clean concrete was crushed and reused on site by our Crushing crews.
