“At more than 300,000 square feet, this was a sizable undertaking,”

Demolition completed under budget and ahead of schedule

LANL has completed demolition of its former Administration Building. Demolition of the 316,500-square-foot building was home to seven Laboratory directors which opened in 1956 and closed in September 2008.

Project activities started in April 2009 and was completed five months ahead of the original schedule and significantly under budget. “After we removed all regulated, hazardous materials such as asbestos, our team was able to recycle about 95 percent of the building,” said Darrik Stafford, LANL’s project director for the demolition. “At more than 300,000 square feet, this was a sizable undertaking,” added John Gallegos of the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Los Alamos Site Office. “I am pleased with the results of this project.”

ARSEC Environmental, LLC was the general contractor for the demolition of the structure, which consisted of four stories plus a basement. Demolition of the former Administration Building helped Los Alamos meet an NNSA directive to reduce its structural footprint, modernize its infrastructure, and provide LANL workers with safe, energy-efficient facilities.

The site of the former Administration Building is now a parking lot.
