A ten man crew out of our Denver office recently completed removal of two large boilers from the basement of Place Bridge Academy, a school in Denver. It was a “tricky” project using torches and plasma cutters to cut the boilers apart and away from its surroundings, and then lifting it out of place using a custom hoist and raising the boiler so it could be placed in a container. The project was completed on-time and on budget. The school district is so impressed, we are doing the same at other schools in the district.
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 October 2015.
Five School Sites
ARC crews worked simultaneously on five Clear Creek ISD campuses during the first part of the summer. HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) system replacements were needed, as well as TSI (thermal systems insulation) work. Our team finished the job at all five sites on-time and in-budget, leaving facilities available for student and teacher summer use. We have an ongoing maintenance contract with the district, and count it a privilege to ensure facilities are optimal for student learning year-round.
ARC crews completed two double-digit projects, removing traces of methamphetamine from a rented house and portions of an apartment complex. Workers wearing respirators and protective gear cleansed every surface in the affected structures, removed ceilings, drywall, drains and disposed of all cloth and porous materials in accordance with regulatory mandates. ARC office has offered meth decontamination for years, and recently completed updated certifications and rigorous testing enacted by the State of Colorado.
