January 2010 Progress Report on the Abatement and
Deconstruction of 130 Liberty Street

Deconstruction Status

As of January 29, 2009 LMDC contractor Bovis Lend Lease is continuing deconstruction of the 22nd floor. The 23rd floor is mostly complete, except for some remaining steel columns. Since deconstruction resumed in mid-November worker have removed the remaining half of the 27th floor as well as the 26th, 25th, 24th, and now 23rd floors.

The contractor has begun to install scaffolding protection on the 18th and the 19th floors in advance of deconstruction on those floors. The tower crane was lowered from the 27th floor to the 24th floor on January 16, 2010, and the hoist for the tower crane was lowered from the 19th floor to the 17th floor on January 17, 2010.

In this and future progress reports, LMDC will be including useful information about elements of the deconstruction. This month’s report will focus on equipment in use at the site.

Equipment Used During Deconstruction


Skid Steer Loader - are used to move building materials such as steel on the deck of 130 Liberty Street. Their small size and maneuverability allows them to operate in tight spaces, such as the deck of 130 Liberty Street.


Spyder Crane – the small size and maneuverability of these Mini-cranes allow them to be used where other cranes cannot go. Tower Crane – are a common fixture at any major construction site. They often rise hundreds of feet into the air, and can reach out just as far. The construction crew uses the tower crane to lift stel, concrete, large tools like acetylene torches and generators, and a wide variety of other building materials. On the 130 Liberty Street project the Mini-cranes are used to access to the interior of the building, hold steel in place, and lowers the steel on to the deck.


Brookk Demo Robot – is used to break the concrete floor panels on at 130 Liberty Street. The remote control access allows for construction workers to conduct the worker operation from at a safe distance from destruction demolition of the concrete flooring.

Scissor Lift – are used at 130 Liberty Street to hoist welders up to the steel beams.
