Prepping to Widen Major Road
In Loveland, Colorado one of its main thoroughfares, Taft Avenue, will be widened in 2022. To accomplish this, homes will be demolished to make room for the expansion. But before the demolition company takes down the houses, a team of five technicians from ARC’s Denver office abated the asbestos in the homes. Asbestos abatement ensures clean air and dust when the demo takes place. Working on a busy street can be challenging, one which we overcame.
Abatement Without Disruption
ARC is abating flooring asbestos without disrupting shopping and operations at a Dallas, Texas retail store. We divided the Burlington Coat Factory into five different areas of concentration and are working in phases. After completing and restoring one area, we move to the next area after a two to three-week work stoppage. This six-figure job will stretch to five months rather than the normal 25-30 days since we are not working straight through. We are all about creative solutions that meet the needs of our customers.
Timing is Everything
ARC is abating asbestos on the Grand Junction, Colorado Veterans Administration campus. It’s a three-phase project; our schedule relies heavily on the timing/coordination of two new AHUs being delivered so they’re not down at the same time. Delivery of the first AHU was delayed. But as soon as it arrived, we completed the first phase of asbestos abatement in under three days. Now we’re waiting for the next AHU to be delivered, and expect the next phase to take off about March 11th.
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, we are the masters of removing asbestos containing materials. Our crew of 10 completed this six-figure project in four weeks.
