Lifting weight at a GoodLife Fitness center isn’t an unusual task. However, when the weight is 650 tonnes of demolition debris that must travel through an active gym, selecting the right tools is imperative.
Capital Cutting & Coring Group (CCC Group), was recently contracted by GoodLife Fitness at the St. Laurent mall in Ottawa to demolish a pool and dispose of all the waste. However, here’s the catch: GoodLife Fitness is open 24/7 and required that the demolition job didn’t interfere with the gym’s clientele.
“Our core business is concrete cutting, coring and small demolition,” said Jesse Noonan, senior project manager for CCC Group.
“But a job like this would require us to somehow transport 650 tonnes of processed concrete from the pool, through a crowded gym full of equipment and people, and finally to a disposal area within the building. All while ensuring the safety and comfort of the public.”
