C&D World;Sep/Oct2008, Vol. 1 Issue 5, p32
The article discusses the process of demolishing a multi-story section of the Fresno Metropolitan Museum in California and recycling the resulting debris. Kroeker Inc. assisted in strengthening the brick building and removing the five-story section. The company used specialized equipment to minimize the dust and hazards created by the demolition. The debris was recycled by Kroeker at its facility in Fresno.
