About the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is an agency within the United States Department of Commerce that provides resources for weather conditions, oceanic endeavors, and environmental science. Their fleet of aircraft and seafaring vessels contain a full arsenal of sensors and equipment to study the conditions of the oceans and atmosphere.

Simpson Environmental Services assisted in the expansion of their Aircraft Operations Center in Lakeland, FL to accommodate larger aircraft needing to be housed in the facility. The performed work included the separation of the hanger roof and beams, with complete removal of 180,000 ft2 of the hanger, slabs, and foundation. Additional cutting of the 12-inch tilt-wall was completed for the new hangar door openings.

Services Used


With a fleet of heavy equipment, EIS’ demolition division is able to self-perform all aspects of demolition. In addition, we can service facilities nationally, with licenses in most states. Our niche is to provide complete abatement, structural demolition and earthwork services. EIS companies have a class A demolition license and the track record to prepare us for most challenges. 

Our demolition teams are experts in the science of precise and safe removal of obsolete structures, their components, and architectural finishes. We employ innovative and successful techniques in the areas of historical preservation, interior renovation, selective dismantling or total demolition.

EIS companies provide the seamless addition of performing selective and interior demolition for non-hazardous building materials. Whether the work requires the complete demolition of non-structural interior walls, ceilings, finishes and even utilities, or the strategic and selective removal of an exterior component or the creation of building openings, special care is given to provide clients with the schedules and precise coordination that addresses more of the total project operational needs.

All projects are performed with the utmost concern for employee safety and the specific technical and control requirements of the work. Because of our expertise in environmental cleaning, interior demolition projects are equally performed with stringent debris controls and the concern for limiting vibration, noise and dust. Many of our employees that execute this work are also experienced environmental professionals and all employees on the work sites have the necessary training, PPE and applicable OSHA certifications. EIS companies perform this work in commercial buildings, retail spaces, hospitals, industrial sites, governmental structures, military facilities and bridges across the nation.
