USD excels at selective interior demolition work and schedule critical removals at commercial and industrial facilities that remain operational. We have earned a solid reputation for performance at this type of work.
These recent USD projects represent our specialty:
USD was started in 1980 as a specialty contractor that provided selective demolition inside historically certified buildings in Chicago. Services quickly expanded to include commercial buildings, industrial facilities and all manner and types of interior demolition and removal work. USD is now Chicago's premier contractor for specialty demolition.
Of the thousands of structures USD has demolished, the Chicago Stadium demolition in 1994-95 remains the most notorious.
Ownership changed in 1992 and again in 1997 when current owner, T. Harry Gieschen, acquired 100% of the company. Mr. Gieschen has worked for USD since it's inception in 1980 and began managing the company as President following the acquisition in 1997.
Company headquarters are located five minutes from Downtown in Chicago's Bridgeport neighborhood and provide excellent logistical support for our crews working in the city.
Field operations are run by USD's General Superintendent, Cleo Blue. Mr. Blue has over 25 years field experience in the demolition industry and directs a labor force that averages 100 men daily. Cleo is also the companies Safety Director.
