Ottowa County Courthouse & Jail

Aging courthouse and jail facilities are common place across America.  Many new courthouse facilities are built in close proximity to the retiring facility.  Often this reguires precise demolition methods to safely remove these aging facilites.

The Ottawa County Courthouse shared a site with the new courthouse and jail facility.  The newly constructed facility was within 4 feet of the retiring facility.  The occupied jail facility bordered the 5 story demolition project  by less than 10 feet.

DT Specialized Services, Inc. demolished the 5 story 45,000 square foot concrete and steel structure in 20 days, thus expiditing the construction of the parking lot for the new facilities.
