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.
Asbestos abatement of approximately one million square feet at the former St. Paul University Hospital site in Dallas. Our crews 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.
ARC Abatement has made way for two new living spaces in Louisiana. For Park 7 Group, ARC abated and demolished five apartment buildings and three houses on an area spanning 50,000 square feet, which will result in new student apartments. This project was completed on-time and on-budget in four weeks. By January, ARC will have abated and performed minor interior demolition in a 60,000 square foot site, which Herman & Kettle Properties plans to turn into affordable housing. Both are six-figure projects.
Likely the largest asbestos abatement project in the history of the state of Texas in terms of size, our work on 1401 Elm Street in downtown Dallas began in August 2014. The building, Elm Place, is 52-stories and 1.3 million square feet. A challenging aspect of the project is the sheer volume of materials to be abated is approximately five million square feet of materials. We have use of a dozen of the 27 elevators that are still operational to move the hazardous materials. The estimated completion date of this eight-figure contract is early 2016.
