The Pier Hotel project is one of Baltimore’s iconic restoration ventures in the Fells Point area. Sagamore Development Co., associated with Under Armour, purchased the old City Pier Building and is planning on turning the building into a premier high-end hotel. ISI Demolition was hired for the demolition work on this existing building. Extensive structural alterations were necessary to make way for the new construction work. In the process, ISI Demolition had to bring in barge cranes and barges to strategically remove much of the existing building structure. Extensive shoring and bracing of the structure to remain was designed and implemented by ISI Demolition had to ensure that the building was stabilized to prevent collapse during and after the demolition work. The demolition work on this project was completed in record time allowing the new construction to proceed on time without any delays.
