Westwood Squibb Pharmaceutical Plant Demolition

Owner: DVD Ventures LLC

Location: Buffalo, New York

Facility Type: Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

This 12 acre site was the former Westwood Squibb pharmaceutical manufacturer located in Buffalo, New York.  The site has been vacant for well over a decade.  Wargo was contracted for the asbestos abatement and demolition of the six buildings on the property combining for over 400,000 square feet.  Once all asbestos and universal waste was removed, Wargo then began an interior strip of each building.  As the interior of one building was completed the heavy structural demolition occurred.  The clean C&D was removed from the site and sent to the landfills.  All concrete slabs and foundations were pulled and removed from the ground.  All masonry was processed and crushed to be used as a recycled aggregate for backfill around the site.
