The dismantling of the Orlando, Fla., Naval Training Center was one of the largest demolition projects in the country. A total of 4.5 million square feet was bulldozed, including 256 buildings, 200 miles of underground utilities, and 40 miles of asphalt roads. About 600,000 tons of clean concrete and masonry materials were crushed and recycled into Baldwin Park's roadbeds and drainage filtration system (on-site recycling saved an estimated 25,000 dump-truck trips through local neighborhoods). New infrastructure totaling $85 million was put in place after demolition.
