Sigma assists with former Doyne Hospital demolition


Working in partnership with Froedtert Hospital, The Sigma Group assisted with an array of building expansion, renovation and facilities development services, as well as Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) services, many of which are to proactively plan and operate in a more sustainable manner within the health care setting.

Demolition Planning

Sigma has provided a full range of services for remodeling and demolition activities. During planning, Sigma has performed hazardous material inspection for such projects as the new Cancer Center, demolition of the 1927-57 Doyne Hospital buildings and for the North Tower addition.

As part of planning, budget costing of abatement, cleanup of contaminated soil and stormwater management were performed. Sigma developed a standard operating practice (SOP) and trained hospital personnel regarding the environmental aspects of renovation and demolition, including asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM), lead-based paint (LBP) and hazardous materials.

Prior to training, these activities were handled inconsistently, causing delays and unplanned expenditures.
