Dennis Thurow of Olin Corporation , the Army's contractor , lead a group of hard-hatted visitors into the main power plant at Badger.Reuse Committee members and other interested people came to get an insiders' look at the buildings and the land.

On Saturday Sept. 30 , the Badger Reuse Committee donned hard hats and toured Badger , armed with questions and supported by several experts who were available on the bus they rode.Three other buses carried members of the general public , in hard hats and bicycle helmets who wanted to take in an insiders' tour.
After an orientation and introductions , the buses pulled out , stopping first at the main power plant.
Thurow said that each slab would need to be removed by hand to eliminate shattering.
Many buildings had been opened by salvage operators and since they are steel framed , Thurow said they can remain open to the elements and still remain safely standing.Bunkers will be removed from some buildings.But the Army will leave the structures.
Thurow explained that many of the buildings were constructed for a specific purpose and would not be useful for today.The Army would be responsible for the removal of contaminated and unsafe structures.They would not remove cement foundations.Even the foundations of old farmsteads remain.Removal constitutes improvement.Thurow said that some warehousing operations look for cement pads upon which to place prefabricated buildings.
Compressor house
Next stop was the compressor house which the Evermore Foundation has requested as the site of the only national monument to the munitions workers of America.
