Get a Whiff of This
While removing texture from tanks and retaining walls at the Trinity River Authority (TRA) water treatment plant in Dallas, ARC General Manager Steve Chappell knew his crew would be aromatically challenged. Steve faced the smell himself at meetings on-site, dubbed “Funkytown” because of its rank odor. “The place reeks, and it cannot be ignored,” said Chappell. Who better to hold their nose and successfully complete the unpleasant six-figure project than ARC Abatement. No job is too funky-smelling for us.
After breaking ground on the $26 million renovation of the Denver RTD Civic Center Station, ARC Abatement Denver is handling structural demolition on the aging, dilapidated facility. ARC Denver general manager Mike Griffin says renovations include nine bus bays, a glass-enclosed terminal building, an open view from 16th Street Mall to the State Capitol and a building that is easier to maintain and repair long-term. The station is a hub for 18 RTD bus routes serving about 15,000 passengers daily.
Abatement Before Demolition
One of our first jobs of 2017 is abating asbestos on eight buildings at the former location of Baptist University of the Américas in San Antonio. Our regional office in Austin is handling the six-figure project. ARC Abatement’s Austin general manager, Don Daniel, says his crew of 17 technicians should finish the 290,00 square foot job in seven weeks. Following our work, the entire site will be demo’d. In July 2016, the BUA campus moved to a new location after more than 50 years on the site we are abating.
Texas’ Biggest Abatement
After a change of ownership delayed the project, ARC is back on the job in JR Ewing’s old office abating the asbestos at 1401 Elm Street in downtown Dallas. ARC General Manager Steve Chappell says they have the bottom and lower level floors to finish. He says the crew of nearly 100 workers should complete the project in January 2017. Likely the largest asbestos abatement project in the history of the state of Texas in terms of size, Elm Place, is 52-stories and 1.3 million square feet.
