Traded in other countries:5GL.Germany
Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation was incorporated in the State of Delaware. The Company is a provider of dredging services in the United States. Great Lakes now provides dredging services in the East, West, and Gulf Coasts of the United States and worldwide The Company also owns demolition service providers which primarily offer demolition and remediation services in the Northeast and Midwest U.S. areas. The Company operates in two reportable segments: dredging and demolition. Dredging generally involves the enhancement or preservation of navigability of waterways or the protection of shorelines through the removal or replenishment of soil, sand or rock. The U.S. dredging market consists of three primary types of work: capital, coastal protection and maintenance. The Company's 'bid market' is defined as the aggregate dollar value of domestic projects on which the Company bid or could have bid if not for capacity constraints. The demolition segment is a major U.S. provider of commercial and industrial demolition services such as interior and exterior demolition for site preparation as well as environmental remediation. Historically, the majority of demolition segment's work was performed in the New England area. Through increased collaboration with Great Lakes' other lines of business, the demolition segment recently expanded into the New York area and marine demolition markets, specifically, bridge demolition. Exterior demolition involves the complete dismantling and demolition of structures and foundations. Interior demolition involves removing specific structures within a building. The aforementioned bridge demolition involves dismantling and disposal of aged or failing bridges. Bridge demolition contains several complex engineering tasks such as maneuvering around existing traffic flow, containment of hazardous materials contained in the bridge materials and removal of extended spans, frequently over water. Other business activities include site development, the removal of asbestos and other hazardous materials, and the ability to remediate contaminated demolition materials. The Company is subject to government regulations.
