ERM was recognized by Resolution Copper as their 2019 Supplier of the Year for our work on the West Plant Smelter Complex and East Plant Cooling Towers demolition projects in Superior, Arizona, United States.

The project included the abatement and demolition of eleven facility structures and the implosion of a 300-foot chimneystack on the historic Magma Copper mine site. In addition to this, the ERM team completed the project with over 10,300 hours of fieldwork without any injuries or incidents.

“ERM was committed to conducting the project with the highest regard for the health and safety of our client, our field personnel, and the community of Superior,” said Tony Parenteau, ERM Partner. “By building an exceptional team of abatement and demolition experts, safety professionals and specialty contractors, we were able to help our client achieve the safe demolition and reclamation of the smelter complex.”

ERM also would like to give special recognition to our primary subcontractors, American Integrated Services, and Controlled Demolition Inc., who performed the stack demolition.
