The Problem

In September of 1998, In Place Machining was called upon to remove a reinforced concrete stair tower, 70-feet high, 12 feet across, and extending 15 feet off of the face of a building, to make way for a large, new wing to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio. This job was made more challenging because it had to be done quietly. The tower was adjacent to critical care patient rooms and sensitive operating rooms

The Solution

IPM came up with a scheme to cut the tower from the top down and cut through the walls, stair sections, and other concrete attachments with one single wire cut. Our company’s pricing was most likely in line with other techniques that might have required more labor. Wire sawing required less use of labor and more use of the equipment.

The Result

The hospital was quite satisfied with the results. What they really enjoyed was the fact that the wire cutting was extremely quiet. IPM didn’t even need OSHA ear protection to be able to work adjacent to the wire cutting operation. Also, there was no vibration or dust.
