Demolition of Aging Orange County Steel Tanks
Andre Abajian, owner of SoCal Removal, has developed a niche in Orange County, California. Public works experience in demolition contracting is in a region of it’s own. Andre first public works demolition was for the city of Yorba Linda a few years back. The project involved the demolition of a unique city block of residential and historic homes.
Interestingly, the Yorba Linda Town Center demolition was originated by Zelman Development master plans of developing the depressed area into a brand new shopping center to be called the Yorba Linda Town Center. Through completion of this project, SoCal Removal has been fortunate to have gained much experience in the demolition and salvage of historic homes within Southern California.

Realizing Orange County was and still is ready for a major face lift, Andre quickly saw opportunity in the demolition, sewer line caps, clean-up and site grading of aging mega-structures, especially water tanks.
After successfully completing the Yorba Linda project, Andre bid on the demolition of the Irvine Ranch Water District’s (IRWD) 2 million gallon reclaimed water holding tank in the city of Lake Forest. “The as built plans and schematics were from 1970. I’m sure the tanks themselves are 40 plus years old, Andre commented. “These steel tanks have outlived their usefulness and are only a liability it seems.”
Today, SoCal Removal has earned the respect and business of two county water agencies –The IRWD and the Yorba Linda Water District. As Andre puts it, his relationship with the two as well as with others “continues to grow.”
