Massachusetts demo firm hired for Waterbury project

City officials on Friday awarded a Massachusetts company a $1 million contract to demolish eight buildings of the former Anaconda-American Brass site on Freight Street. Costello Dismantiling Co. has six months to clear eight buildings on 10.5 acres at 130 Freight St., according to its contract with the Waterbury Development Corp. Eight companies bid on the demolition work and Costello was the lowest qualified bidder. Former Gov. Dannel Malloy’s administration awarded Waterbury a $1.5 million grant for the demolition and cleanup work at 130 Freight St. The demolition work will leave the foundations behind. After the buildings are down, the city is planning further studies to determine what sort of environmental cleanup is needed ahead of redevelopment.
