Implosion Prep in Austin

ARC is playing a part in reshaping the Austin skyline with the abatement of asbestos in the 9-story Ashbel Smith Hall. It was imploded March 25th to make way for a new 37-story, 665,000 SF tower housing retail and office space developed by Trammell Crow.  ARC is also abating the historic, 3-story Claudia Taylor Johnson building, which was Austin’s Post Office in the early 1900s.  It will be retained and redeveloped.

Historic Work in Phases

It is not unusual for ARC Abatement to work in phases when it comes to historical structures. Phase I of ARC Denver’s work on a 92-year old, four story building includes asbestos and lead abatement as well as interior demolition that will end in February 2018. Phase II will begin in May and will include window abatement. The structure will eventually become 106 units of affordable housing at 101 Broadway in downtown Denver. Development is being led by Zocalo Community Development.

Government Asbestos

Government Asbestos Abatement – Windows

ARC’s work is complete on the government asbestos abatement project at the Dallas VA Hospital, removing 555 windows with asbestos containing caulk keeping them in place. Dallas VP & GM Steve Chappell reports the job was performed safely, on-time and on-budget. ARC is registered with the U.S. SAM database and qualified to work on government asbestos abatement projects by the General Services Administration (GSA). Call on us. We are the best at what we do. 

Asbestos Containing Materials


Asbestos Containing Materials or ACMs vary per project. ARC Denver is running into a myriad of ACMs at their Colorado School of Mines project that include duct work, caulking, plaster, drywall, floor tile, pipe insulation and windows. Asbestos Containing Materials can be the items themselves or the materials used to hold those items in place. Either way, the crews at ARC Abatement are the masters of removing Asbestos Containing Materials and will complete this project in July.
