CHAMBERS ST SUBWAY STATION
Located in the heart of downtown Manhattan, under the NYC Municipal Building and adjacent to City Hall, One Police Plaza and the Courts, Chambers Street is one of the busiest and most visible stations in the NYCT system. MLJ has been contracted by the MTA to provide ADA accessibility and improve the aesthetics of this station. This is a complex project, in that the station also serves as a transfer station to another subway line. Increased ADA accessibility at this station will have a huge impact on the daily lives of the many City residents and workers who frequent the facilities nearby.

World War II Era Manufacturing Facility
Prior to the new construction of a combined cycle power plant at this former manufacturing facility, EIG was contracted to completely demolish and abate the site. During execution, EIG also discovered hazardous materials and immediately commenced environmental remediation. Because EIG is a demolition contractor as well as an experienced remediation contractor, we were able to provide turnkey service to seamlessly finish the job and keep construction on schedule as we performed the removal and disposal of the unforeseen contaminated soil.
Nuclear Power Plant, Genoa, WI
No longer economically viable, the 50-megawatt nuclear energy power plant, originally utilized by the federal government as a demonstration facility, was forced to close down. After 30 years of not producing power, EIG was retained to perform the demolition work. Over the course of two years, EIG demolished the reactor, turbine building, turbine foundations and all underground utilities associated with plant operations. Additionally, EIG removed internal components and performed the demolition of multiple structures, including the 350’ stack (via non-explosive methods), waste water treatment facility and underground utilities.
