Historical Site Work
We recently completed lead abatement on the Oakley Plantation, a historical site in the Audubon Memorial State Park in Louisiana. Under the direction of general manager Lee Patterson, we completed lead abatement on the entire exterior of the three-story house in preparation for the contractor to repaint. The six-figure project took about 12 weeks with our crew of eight. Construction began on the house in 1799. A young John James Audubon painted 32 of his famous bird pictures here.
What goes up must come down, as our crews took out the old elevator system at the Paul L. Foster Campus for Business and Innovation at Baylor University. We removed rails, car, electrical and mechanical components and the hoist system. Safety was top of mind during the tricky scaffolding process after the cab was removed. Three technicians spent several days working on the four-story elevator. As usual, we came in under-budget and on-time. This is the fifth elevator demo for the Waco crew.
Success was in the details for ARC Denver GM Mike Griffin and team. We recently completed a meticulous interior and structural demolition for the Bank of America in Greenwood Village, Colorado. The October ’16 to March ’17 project involved five ARC technicians removing exterior concrete overlay to the deck, which is the original concrete structure. We not only gutted the 7,000 square feet interior but also razed outside sidewalks and parking lots. This six-figure project was on-time and on-budget.
ARC Abatement has completed the single largest asbestos abatement project in Texas history. We removed slightly over 5.6M square feet of asbestos containing surface material and 100k linear feet of piping and duct work from the 1.2M sq. ft. structure at 1401 Elm Street in downtown Dallas. This job eclipses our previous Astrodome project by more than 200K square feet. We will not be intimidated.
