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.
Lucky Number 5
It’s the 5/555/5 program for ARC Abatement Dallas and ARC’s Dallas General Manager Steve Chappell and his crew at the Dallas Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center on S. Lancaster Road. We have five months to abate 555 windows but are limited to only five windows a day. The caulk used to secure the old windows contains asbestos, which we are abating. They must be removed before new ones can be installed. ARC Abatement salutes our veterans and your service to our country.
LSU Boiler Abatement
One of ARC Abatement’s strengths is its versatility to perform work for many business sectors. Such is the case on this project with LSU Health Center in New Orleans, LA. ARC removed three large boilers and abated asbestos associated with the boilers. This six figure job took ARC two months to complete to allow for the hospital to proceed on schedule to install a new boiler system. The project was performed timely & under budget using ARC’s specialized estimating software.
