We are playing our part to reshape the Austin skyline with the abatement and gutting of the 9-story Ashbel Smith. It will be demolished for a new 37-story tower on the 1.75-acre prime block in downtown owned by the University of Texas System. The Trammel Crow project will include 665,000 SF of office space, restaurants and retail space. Also, we are abating the historic, 3-story Claudia Taylor Johnson building, which was Austin’s Post Office in the early 1900s. It will be retained and redeveloped.
Historic Work in Phases
It is not unusual for ARC Abatement to work in phases when it comes to historical structures. Phase I of ARC Denver’s work on a 92-year old, four story building includes asbestos and lead abatement as well as interior demolition that will end in February 2018. Phase II will begin in May and will include window abatement. The structure will eventually become 106 units of affordable housing at 101 Broadway in downtown Denver. Development is being led by Zocalo Community Development.
ACC-Rio Grande Campus
Venturing onto a college campus is nothing new for ARC Abatement. Our work takes us to Austin Community College Rio Grande Campus in Austin, Texas. Our task? Complete removal of asbestos-containing material in a 3 story, 100-year-old building. This six-figure, 2,900 + sq. ft. project encompasses removal of plaster walls, floors, asbestos-containing materials, and selective demolition. ARC is an integral part of ACC’s plan to renovate this grand building.
LSU Boiler Abatement
One of ARC Abatement’s strengths is its versatility to perform work for many business sectors. Such is the case on this project with LSU Health Center in New Orleans, LA. ARC removed three large boilers and abated asbestos associated with the boilers. This six figure job took ARC two months to complete to allow for the hospital to proceed on schedule to install a new boiler system. The project was performed timely & under budget using ARC’s specialized estimating software.
