What We Do

Safely Reducing Environmental Risks

We are cleaning up contaminated, unused facilities on the Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR). In addition to removing excess facilities, we maintain facilities across ORR that are waiting for disposition. We also provide critical upgrades to extend the life of active, but aging, facilities. This continues the same work done by the former UCOR from 2011 to 2022.

With over 22 years of experience working in Oak Ridge, Mark tells us that he has really enjoyed his time with UCOR. “UCOR’s been one of the best jobs for my union hall that we’ve had out here in Oak Ridge and the Knoxville area, period.” ...

UCOR’s “remove as we go” practice when demolishing buildings is safe, efficient, and environmentally protective. Workers are now more than 50% complete with demolition of the Criticality Experiment Laboratory on the Y-12 National Security Complex. In this video clip, you can see crews getting waste into trucks for disposal. Since demolition started, more than 82 truckloads of waste have been removed from the site. Demolition is expected to be complete in September.
