Nighttime Double Shift
Day or night, ARC will work tirelessly to remove dangerous asbestos from buildings, and that included the Regions Bank Burnside branch in Gonzalez, LA. Our six technicians abated the wallpaper and wainscoting on the fourth floor in preparation for future remodeling. The biggest challenge of the asbestos abatement project was working after hours, starting at 6:30 p.m. Our techs worked double shifts totaling 17 hours so that customers and employees were not inconvenienced.
After breaking ground on the $26 million renovation of the Denver RTD Civic Center Station in 2016, ARC Abatement 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.
Historic Abatement Completed
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.
