Prepping for Demolition
Through referrals by demolition contractors, ARC handled the asbestos abatement on La Sombra’s 22 building apartment complex prior to being demolished. For the Tierra Linda Apartment project, we handled asbestos abatement and mold removal prior to demolition. We also successfully completed an asbestos abatement project on two apartment complexes prior to being demolished for mixed use and redevelopment.
Austin Community College (ACC) is renovating and transforming the old Highland Mall in Austin, Texas into a state-of-the art center for innovative learning, training excellence, and community engagement. Phase 1 of ACC Highland is scheduled to open in the fall 2014. Our most recent ACC project is asbestos containment for the removal of floor tile in what was the Dillard's men’s department. The project will take several weeks and has a six-figure price tag.
Demolition work is underway on ten houses and three apartment buildings within a city block near the campus of Louisiana State University. ARC's Jon Dayton and team oversaw the safe removal of asbestos and lead from the structures before demolition began February 15th. The six-figure contract was awarded to ARC to make way for The Standard of Baton Rouge, a $50M Landmark Properties' project that will provide high-rise, luxury, condominium living for LSU students.
Work is underway on abating the asbestos in the "Eighth Wonder of the World," or the Astrodome in Houston, Texas. Harris County awarded the seven figure contract to ARC Abatement in November 2013. Rick Rickels, general manager of ARC's Houston office, will lead the project. He says the project will be completed in 274 calendar days, which includes down time during the special events at the stadium. The Astrodome measures 1M gross square feet.
