Statement regarding the selection of the site demolition contractor

The ASARCO Trust has awarded the site demolition contract to Brandenburg Industrial Service Company (Brandenburg) of Chicago, Illinois. Brandenburg is an approximately $150 million dollar a year demolition company with more than 40 years of experience. Their website can be found at

Brandenburg will pay the Trust in excess of $1 million to perform the Site work. This very favorable arrangement is due to the significant value of the scrap metal to be recycled during the demolition. The Trust’s demolition engineering contractor, ERM, managed the procurement process, negotiated the agreement and will provide on-site construction management during the demolition. The payment and cost savings will be used for the site remediation, on such projects as the rehabilitation of Parker Brothers Arroyo.

The public can ask questions or post comments on the blog section of the website; the Trust will respond to all queries.
