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.
What goes up must come down, as our crews took out the old elevator system at the Paul L. Foster Campus for Business and Innovation at Baylor University. We removed rails, car, electrical and mechanical components and the hoist system. Safety was top of mind during the tricky scaffolding process after the cab was removed. Three technicians spent several days working on the four-story elevator. As usual, we came in under-budget and on-time. This is the fifth elevator demo for the Waco crew.
Our “safety first” rule resulted in an A+ grade during the selective demolition of 40,000 square feet of a school in Colorado Springs. Working on the three-story building posed a risk hazard, so we conducted daily safety tailgate meetings and demonstrated proper lifting methods. Flooring was demolished to install a new elevator core, and using heavy equipment allowed machines to do the most difficult work. More than 30 dumpsters of concrete were carried off property, without incident or injury.
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.
