What’s New

ARC Abatement was hired to demolish the 12,000 square-foot Louisiana State University Kappa Sigma fraternity house, which will be replaced with a $6 million mansion twice the size. The current frat house was built in the 1930s when the standards of reputable constructors in the area did not compare to the quality expected today.  This resulted in the significant structural failure of the foundation system that was found during a recent inspection of the house.  The six-figure demo project will take roughly two months to complete.

Hospital Abatement

Asbestos abatement of approximately one million square feet at the former St. Paul University Hospital site in Dallas. Our asbestos abatement contractors removed the hazardous material before our partner, Lindamood Demolition, implodes a portion of the facility.  These precautionary steps are taken because of the renovation’s proximity to another functioning segment of the hospital. The new William P. Clements Jr. Hospital replaced the 50-year-old St. Paul Hospital. ARC’s expertise ensures the safety of patients, hospital staff and visitors.

Refurbishing

ARC crews refurbished, removed lead-based paint from, and repainted the interior and exterior of the front and rear hangar doors at a facility which stores the famous Yellow Rose, a WWII B-25 Bomber. The hangar, built in 1940, sits on the San Marcos Airport campus—about 50 miles south of Austin, TX— which also serves as a museum, preserving WWII airplanes and artifacts. ARC finished work on the hangar doors and replaced all wood panels and window panes on time, wrapping up the project in November 2015.

Clean Gulf Air

ARC Abatement is smelling the clean Gulf air—a six-figure project has ARC abating asbestos in the turbine room of a power plant in south Texas, near the Gulf of Mexico. Though the boiler room was abandoned nearly a decade ago, and the conditions around the site during the cleanup have been less than ideal, the project is going very well. Environmental cleanup projects such as this one in south Texas are particularly important in coastal areas such as this because of their delicate ecosystems and ocean contiguity.
