economic restructuring.

"Over five million square feet of industrial plants have been demolished 
in the past 24 months in Mid-Michigan," said Pat Wurtzel of Bierlein 
Companies of Midland.

that have assisted in the funding of demolition and remediation 
activities for obsolete properties," Wurtzel said.
