Case study: Evaluation of a scenario for the reuse of structures in the production area at Fernald

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The potential for the reuse of uncontaminated structures at federal facilities that are being remediated should be evaluated. Although various factors often limit the viability of such reuse, it may be economically attractive to reuse selected structures. Consideration of a hypothetical reuse scenario for the US Department of Energy`s Fernald, Ohio facility shows that the reuse of selected buildings that were not significantly contaminated by production activities at the site may be considerably less expensive than the construction of new ones. The cost of removal of existing buildings is a major factor influencing the relative advantages of these two options. ... continued below

For Fernald, no need for the facility`s buildings has been identified; however, the reuse of structures may be a viable option at other facilities.
