Demolition By Hand
A car dealership in Baton Rouge, Price LeBlanc Lexus, is undergoing a facelift while business continues. Our Louisiana team is handling the strategic demolition of the exterior soffit around the entire building. Five to six ARC technicians are working ten-hour days without disrupting employees and customers. ARC GM Lee Patterson says the techs are doing the work by hand. This five-figure project took three weeks.
In picturesque Fort Collins, ARC is on the campus of Colorado State Univ. prepping for a new housing/dining services venue named Meridian Village. The near seven-figure project includes approx. 34K sq ft of asbestos abatement in Aylesworth Hall, one of two dorm sites to become Meridian Village. We will also remove/dispose of more than 1,800 windows with asbestos-containing glazing compound and caulking. The university opted for quick completion, so our crew of 20-30 will finish June 7th.
Movie-Goers Come & Go
Twenty ARC Dallas technicians are abating 650K SF of asbestos at Valley View Mall. One challenge is working around the functioning theatre. ARC GM Steve Chappell estimates four months to complete this seven-figure job. Chappell believes the site will be demo’d for future development. On March 11, 2019. WFAA.com reported “… in 2017, WFAA even covered a demolition ceremony. But here we are years later, and the mostly vacant building still stands.”
Who Did It?
On April 15, a large crew from our Louisiana office started asbestos abatement on ceilings and floor tiles/mastic in the empty Rosenwald Elementary School building in New Orleans. Unexpected and problematic levels of airborne asbestos have local, state and school officials looking for answers as to who is responsible. Not knowing means ARC will also conduct a specialized cleaning of the entire building. The seven-figure project should be completed in three months.
