EDISON Project

Alhambra, California


Standard Demolition was entrusted with the significant task of demolishing a facility used by Southern California Edison for refurbishing and storing transformers. The project posed unique challenges, primarily due to the long steel structure that necessitated the use of our high-reach demolition excavator. A critical aspect of this project was ensuring the safety and minimal impact on the ongoing operations at the Edison location.


  • Efficiently and safely dismantle the transformer refurbishing and storage facility.
  • Strategically demolish the long steel structure using specialized high-reach demolition equipment.
  • Ensure minimal disruption to the ongoing operations and personnel at Southern California Edison.
  • Maintain the highest safety standards to protect both our team and Edison employees.

Key Tasks:

  1. Site Assessment and Planning: Performed a detailed assessment to plan the safest and most effective demolition strategy, especially for the challenging steel structure.
  2. High-Reach Demolition: Utilized our advanced high-reach demolition excavator to tackle the large steel structure, ensuring precision and safety.
  3. Debris Management and Recycling: Carefully managed the demolition debris, prioritizing environmentally responsible disposal and recycling practices.
  4. Safety Protocols Implementation: Rigorously adhered to comprehensive safety protocols to minimize risk throughout the project duration.
  5. Final Site Clearance: Conducted thorough site cleanup and clearance post-demolition, ensuring the area was safe and tidy for Edison’s continued use.

Safety Measures:

  • Adhered strictly to industry-standard safety measures, ensuring the well-being of all involved personnel.
  • Implemented additional safety precautions due to the proximity of Edison’s operational staff and facilities.

Challenges and Solutions:

  • Addressed the complexities involved in demolishing the long steel structure while keeping adjacent structures and operations intact.
  • Successfully navigated the logistical and safety challenges of operating high-reach demolition equipment in a sensitive environment.
