The Y‑12 National Security Complex recently completed another improvement in its site infrastructure with the demolition of Building 9744, a former utilities and maintenance facility occupying more than 9,000 square feet.
Despite structural issues and waste disposal concerns, the facility was safely demolished nearly two months ahead of schedule.
The demolition proved challenging due to the deteriorating facility conditions, precluding the standard approach of entering the facility to minimize hazards and remove hazardous waste prior to the demolition.
