Sports Castle Solution

Large-Scale Demolition


From structural engineering to utilities and subsurface investigations, the ability to perform any unforeseen environmental and demolition services at a moment’s notice was paramount to keeping this project on-time.

About the Sports Castle

Earth Services & Abatement (ESA) recently completed an intricate, large-scale, demolition project focused on the non-historical portion of the former Sports Castle, a building located in “the Golden Triangle”, one of Denver, Colorado’s fastest growing areas.

ESA provided turnkey site redevelopment and demolition services for a developer seeking to build a 14-story luxury apartment complex.  With nearly 40 years of experience and a vast team of industry experts, ESA was able to perform all work in-house for this high-profile project. Preconstruction included all planning, engineering, permitting, and interbuilding separation of all utilities. Roughly 90,000 square feet of building, varying from one to four stories, was demolished all while keeping the historic buildings on both sides structurally sound and operational.

Most all challenges had to be worked through in real-time as no historical drawings existed for the site to assist in mitigating issues ahead of time.

On one of the busiest streets in Denver, it was extremely important to implement and follow stringent safety protocols. A clean and secure property was maintained at all times to ensure the safety of workers and all members of the community.

Barring many unforeseen challenges, ESA’s industry expertise, dedication, and superior customer service paved the way to hit the client’s target end date.

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.
