Demolition is complete on the Sysco site. The demolition was on time and on budget. Murray Demolition was main contractor on the project. Considerable activity has been taking place with former steelworkers employed on site, doing essential demolition activities and clean up. The Demolition Gallery and Video Gallery host interesting pictures and footage of the plant's demolition.

There is a detailed decommissioning process, which must take place before a building can be demolished. This includes a careful inspection to ensure that all environmental and safety matters are dealt with prior to the commencement of any demolition activity. Each building must be evaluated and signed off by Seacor Environmental before demolition takes place.

At this point, twenty-five buildings and structures have been removed, including the machine shop, calcite plant, and old roll shop. Below is a list of the structures that have been removed and the date they were cleared for demolition to start. Other buildings will be maintained for use in the planned industrial park.
