About Us

Shawn McGinness started Environmental Demolition Group in 2004 with the sole purpose of becoming the premier contractor for comprehensive environmental clean-up and select demolition services in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states in the USA. 

The EDG Approach

Our approach is built on a solid foundation that includes expert resources, skilled craftspeople, high-grade materials, and state-of-the-art technology and equipment. Team members arrive on time and equipped to handle anything on the premises. We’re respectful of the property, people, and processes involved with interior demolition and abatements. Our expertise has built trust over the years, and we bring our experience into every relationship and partnership we forge.

Areas of Expertise

Environmental Demolition Group has nearly 100 years of combined experience in project management, interior demolition, select demolition, abatement, and hazardous material handling. Our technical staff stays current with asbestos certification, lead abatement training, and the most current procedures in select demolition.


Environmental Demolition Group does things by the book. Our staff follows the letter of the law, OSHA and EPA regulations per jurisdiction, and modern building codes regarding asbestos, lead, demolition, and hazmat abatement of other environmental contaminants. We’re professionals to the core. You can rest assured that your building will be safe from hazardous materials after we complete our job.

Peace of Mind

You’ll receive documentation after the removal of any hazardous waste. You’ll also receive landfill receipts, air monitoring results, and detailed reports citing everything our staff did and everything we removed from the property. If anyone has questions later on, such as a potential buyer for the property or a tenant in your building, you have all of the documentation in hand.

Feel free to reach out to us at any point in the future if you have questions about the paperwork we gave you. We’re happy to help in any way.
