For over 60 years, the name Spirtas has been synonymous with urban renewal.
What began as a local St. Louis dismantling and hauling company by Joe Spirtas in 1954 has evolved into a pace-setting industrial service firm that provides construction solutions for customers nationwide, Canada, US Virgin Islands & Puerto Rico.
Spirtas Wrecking Company’s dedicated professionals are committed to project integrity and complete customer satisfaction. Our principals, operational staff, construction personnel, engineering and management staff, IT specialists, and departments of finance and accounting, purchasing, safety and transportation all work together to form a focused, winning team. Having razed thousands of buildings both nationally and in and around St. Louis, the Spirtas team stays current with changes and trends, backing extensive experience with continued education and training.
Effective construction management and partnering enables Spirtas to provide owners with a turnkey operation that offers the efficiency and convenience of single source responsibility. Equipped with the newest technology and a specially outfitted equipment arsenal, Spirtas professionals welcome challenging projects and opportunities to employ their equipment, expertise and versatility.
The foundation of all Spirtas projects is safety, a practice that mandates deliberate action and constant awareness. Safety impacts multiple levels: Spirtas employees, owners, the general public and the environment. Our Environmental Health and Safety department tracks compliance and conducts routine drug testing. Since its importance cannot be overestimated, safety training is the first step to employment at Spirtas.
Our emphasis on safety parallels our commitment to maintaining the highest ethical standards.
All Spirtas employees receive federally approved, mandatory ethics training focusing on environmental compliance. Spirtas is committed to doing the right thing to protect our employees, our clients, the environment and the public we serve.
Spirtas’ bidding procedures highlight flexibility. In addition to the standard bidding process, Spirtas also operates on a lump sum award, negotiated contract and cost plus basis.
Spirtas is fully registered and nationally licensed, and maintains all proper permits and authorizations required. We carry the highest quality insurance coverage and best bonding in the industry. Our commitment to providing the most efficient, cost-effective construction methods supported by the latest technology is underscored by our resolve to offer customers maximum protection and a responsible approach to risk management.
For swift, deliberate action under extreme circumstances, Spirtas is the name to call. Whether it’s a fire, a building collapse, an explosion or a chemical spill, Spirtas quickly mobilizes emergency response teams to assist general contractors, developers, the government and the private sector. When addressing catastrophes such as floods or tornados, Spirtas identifies problems and strategically mobilizes for action.
