Project Experience

McElroy Gantry Removal

This project entailed demolition and abatement services at a coal preparation plant located in Moundsville, WV.


Work included asbestos transite abatement involving three sides of a 220 LF elevated conveyor gallery crossing State Route 2, between an AEP plant and the McElroy facility, along with removal of the gantry.


After completion of the abatement process, the gantry was dismantled in three sections at night during low traffic conditions utilizing a 350 ton crane. The pieces were placed in the work area adjacent to the state route on the McElroy side and were sheared onsite.


All concrete and steel were recycled offsite and the area was graded to original condition.

Demolition Clears The Way For Progress

Demolition, properly and safely utilized, provides opportunities necessary for new infrastructure as well as renovation of existing locations.

Advantage Blasting and Demolition is licensed and authorized to perform both conventional demolition and explosive demolition projects nationwide.

Although we offer two separate divisions of demolition, by combining our resources, we're able to perform any turnkey demolition project needed.

Our goal at Advantage Blasting & Demolition is to formulate, develop & streamline (with one-on-one communication) the best options available via conventional and/or explosive demolition, a process to complete every job to our customer’s satisfaction in a safe, timely & cost efficient manner.

The use of explosives allows us to provide clients with the most effective methodology available in the industry, providing them the tools needed to bid more efficiently and with less manpower, thereby reducing work-force exposure and overall liability.
