Featured Project Case Study
The former Sappi Fine Paper Mill was located in the Lakeside community of Muskegon Michigan and decommissioned in 2009. Today, generations of workers from the plant still reside in the community which overlooks Muskegon Lake and borders the eastern shores of Lake Michigan. In 2016, Pure Muskegon, LLC., a group of local business owners and investors purchased the property and a development plan was established to re-purpose the sprawling 100+ acre site into a mixed use commercial and residential development. With two iconic 275’ smokestacks still remaining, the investment group sought out Balestrieri to develop an environmental plan to remediate the exterior surfaces of the stacks and prepare them for demolition.
"I wanted to pass on my appreciation to your group for the work they did on site. Mike Ruenz did a great job communicating with us early on and helping us understand how the abatement was going to fit into all of the other activities on site. Raphael’s crew was also outstanding to work with on site. They worked safely, quickly, and efficiently. There is normally a steep learning curve for new contractors coming on site to do work and Raphael’s crew handled it with ease. The flexibility and skill that Balestrieri showed allowed us to stay on track during a critical shutdown. Those efforts do not go unnoticed and I wanted to share just how happy we were with how Balestrieri’s work turned out."More Testimonials
