“It was a pleasure working with the Independence (IX) team, especially closely with Matt Welsh and Steve Marinin, on the Greer Stadium - Deconstruction and Demolition project. The IX team did a great job! They were all very knowledgeable and always very professional. They were

easy to communicate with and easy to work with! They were very aware of project-specific constraints (specifically archaeologically sensitive areas on the property) and worked in a manner to protect those areas. Thank you for all your hard work. I would fully recommend IX in the future.”

"The professionalism and knowledge exhibited by Independence's Project Management staff, field supervision and craft personnel was evident from their initial mobilization to site. Independence's attention to safety and quality and the professional treatment of their employees and the Owner contributed to the successful completion of this work. In addition, Independence completed their work without a single lost time incident. The complex nature of this work required a Contractor who excelled in safety, the ability to plan and overall project execution. Ultimately, Independence completed their work safely, on schedule and with a high emphasis on fairness to the Owner."

Thank you and your crews for their fine work in Lima, Ohio on the demolition of the Ineos Barex plant chemical facility.   The Lima Barex team went into this project with many safety concerns regarding the major demolition project inside a working plant and contacted multiple contractors to review their safety performance.  My team and I were concerned that a demolition company would not be accustomed to chemical plant hazards and practices and the special safety activities needed to avoid any hazardous chemical exposures from idled equipment, piping, and vessels as they are being demolished.  The nature of the elastomer and Acrylo polymerization process meant that our systems could not be guaranteed to be free of all organics and this required patience, care and frequent intrusive testing every day to avoid the potential for fire, explosions, and exposures.  Independence took all of our concerns and requirements for providing a safe workplace and put them into place in a seamless process working each day with our operators and supervisors assigned to the demolition project.   Independence delivered on their commitment to keep our surrounding plants and traffic working with only the slightest interruptions for safety reasons.   

Most importantly, the Independence Excavating team also took a lead along with Ineos to “stop work” when there was any safety concern and get everyone together to review the risks and address them.    Independence completed the project on budget and slightly ahead of schedule at the Lima site and handled work scopes that expanded to other small demolition projects which were awarded to Independence as the sole qualified contractor.  I would personally thank and recommend the Independence crew led by Doug Thomas, John Carroll, Nick Blubaugh, and the rest of their team for any future demolition work.
