HULL SCHOOL DEMOLITION UPDATE - Sept. 9

posted Sep 9, 2010, 12:51 PM by SMB Estates

Fill dirt was trucked to the site and the leveling and grading was completed before Labor Day. Hydroseeding of the grounds was being done on Sept.9.
Some of the playground equipment was removed from the site just before the grading was done.  The swings and some benches were removed.  We were under the impression that all of the playground equipment was to remain.  An inquiry has been made to find out why and if the missing pieces are going to be replaced.

The breakup and haul away of the concrete foundation and asphalt has been completed.  The security fencing placed around the site is being removed.  The old storm drainage system is being torn out.  Fill dirt is being trucked in.  Grading of the site should start soon.

HULL SCHOOL DEMOLITION UPDATE - Aug. 23

The school building was torn down last week and all the brick rubble haul away was completed this morning.  They have now started on breaking up the concrete slab foundation and all of the asphalt playground that was around the side and back of the school.  The original school parking lot will also be torn up to remove the storm sewer system which is required to be removed.  The parking lane that is along Lyndon will remain.

HULL SCHOOL DEMOLITION UPDATE - Aug. 13

The following message was received from LPS:
This is a quick update to let you know that the trucks and equipment for the demolition of the Hull school building will be arriving this weekend.  The work will begin early next week, and all precautions for dust and debris control will be in place.  They are planning to have the building down within a few days.

HULL SCHOOL DEMOLITION UPDATE - Aug. 9

posted Aug 9, 2010, 8:51 AM by SMB Estates   [ updated Aug 13, 2010, 12:03 PM ]

For the past three weeks Able Demolition has been doing preparation work for the final demolition of Hull School.  A protective fence was erected around the site.  They have been working on the interior of the school removing all of the old style floor tile containing asbestos fibers for proper disposal, removing light fixturing and tubes, and the glass windows.  There may be another week of interior demolition before the final knockdown of the brick walls and roof starts.  The trucks hauling away the debris will travel away from the site through our subs along Lyndon out to Levan.
The Hull Huskies sign has been removed from the site by LPS and put into storage.  We are hoping that an arrangement can be made to return the sign to the site after everything has been leveled and cleaned up.  Part of the parking lot will be saved for use by residents using the play field.  All of the existing playground equipment, picnic tables and benches will be retained. 
Pictures of the demolition steps are being taken and will be posted on the website later.
