Bunge Grain Elevator Salvage and Demolition

Council Bluffs, Iowa

The demolition of the Bunge Grain Elevator Property included the removal of all vertical structures, underground foundations, footings, tunnels and related utilities. The vertical structures include 9 buildings, two truck scales, 2 steel tanks and 60 silos with a total capacity of 1,909,000 bushels. The City of Council Bluffs needed the 3 block area cleared and remediated to a clean site for future development of their 64 block development master plan. With  a sustainable demolition process, FEH was able to achieve a 98% diversion rate from the landfill and saved the owner over 1 million dollars in demolition costs.
