Malt Plant - Milwaukee, WI
North American Dismantling was contracted by the Miller Park
Way Limited Partnership to provide environmental remediation
and dismantle the Old Froedert Malt Plant in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
|Work Performed: environmental
The plant consisted of 33 structures on a 11 acre site. The plant
was originally constructed in 1910 with several additions occurring
in 1913, 1925, 1928, 1934, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1946, 1953,

of work; The concrete silos and the Malt Plant Proper and
Out Buildings with Site Work.
Item # 1
The silo area consists of 5 major groups of silos known as Grain
Tank Groups A, B, C, D & E comprised of 69 separate silos, 2
Grain Elevators totaling 60,000 Square feet. The silos and
elevators range from 100'-0" to 120'-0" in height. The
silos and elevators are of concrete construction.
Item # 2
The main building is comprised of several major buildings that have
been connected over the years totaling 240,000 SF. The building
consisted of Storage Houses A, D, and E, Boiler House, Engine House,
Locker Building, Kiln Houses A, B, C & D, Production Lab, Office
Building, Research Lab, Germinating Houses A, B & C and miscellaneous
structures The main building is constructed of masonry
walls, concrete and structural steel framing, and concrete and steel
roof decks and built up roofing.
In addition to the main building there exists several out buildings
totaling 20,000 SF. The building were the Meter House, Vaporizing
House, Maintenance Building, Pump House, Auto House, Rail Car Unloading
House The outbuildings are a combination of steel framed,
masonry block and steel siding construction.
In addition to the demolition, North American Dismantling was responsible
for the complete environmental clean up of the plant including asbestos,
CFC's, Lead Based Paints, Hydraulic Oils, Fluorescent Light Bulbs
and Ballasts, PCBs, etc.
North American Dismantling designed a specialized water blasting
operations to remove asbestos coatings from the sides of the silos
to 100’-0” in the air. The asbestos was removed by water
blasting methods while simultaneously being vacuumed back into a
enclosed system for disposal.
At the end of the project North American Dismantling
recycled and processed approximately 80,000 tons of concrete
