Prepping for Demolition
Through referrals by demolition contractors, ARC handled the asbestos abatement on La Sombra’s 22 building apartment complex prior to being demolished. For the Tierra Linda Apartment project, we handled asbestos abatement and mold removal prior to demolition. We also successfully completed an asbestos abatement project on two apartment complexes prior to being demolished for mixed use and redevelopment.
ARC Abatement's Steve Chappell, vice president and general manager of our north Texas region, oversaw the safe removal of asbestos from buildings owned by First Baptist Church Dallas in preparation for the implosion of several buildings within the church’s super block in the downtown area. ARC completed the work on-time and on-budget. You may have seen our huge banner when the implosion was covered by CNN, WFAA-TV and KXAS-TV.
When Braun & Butler Construction was hired to restore the historic Texas Governor’s Mansion following a 2008 fire, ARC Abatement was called to remediate mold that had grown within the structure. The Mansion’s basement was filled with the water used to extinguish the fire, and mold was floor to ceiling and encroaching the first floor. We worked for six months removing the mold and then cleaned, disinfected and preserved each wall and piece of trim. We completed the project on-time and on-budget.
Work is underway on abating the asbestos in the "Eight Wonder of the World," or the Astrodome in Houston, Texas. Harris County awarded the seven figure contract to ARC Abatement in November 2013. Rick Rickels, general manager of ARC's Houston office, will lead the project. He says the project will be completed in 274 calendar days, which includes down time during the special events at the stadium. The Astrodome measures 1M gross square feet.
