In the historic Federal Hill area, a group of factory buildings dated 1911 were about to be updated from low
rent loft spaces to marketable mixed-use buildings. The neighborhood is a vital part of Providence and a
marketable draw for new residents. The winning demolition bid was lower than the others by a wide
margin. Why? The contractor crushed concrete and brick on site and used it as much needed fill, saving the
client over a million dollars and delivering higher air and water quality to the community. The project
diverted over 99% of materials while allowing the client and contractor to split significant savings.
