What’s New

ARC crews refurbished, removed lead-based paint from, and repainted the interior and exterior of the front and rear hangar doors at a facility which stores the famous Yellow Rose, a WWII B-25 Bomber. The hangar, built in 1940, sits on the San Marcos Airport campus—about 50 miles south of Austin, TX— which also serves as a museum, preserving WWII airplanes and artifacts. ARC finished work on the hangar doors and replaced all wood panels and window panes on time, wrapping up the project in November 2015.

Hospital Abatement

Asbestos abatement of approximately one million square feet at the former St. Paul University Hospital site in Dallas. Our crews removed the hazardous material before our partner, Lindamood Demolition, implodes a portion of the facility.  These precautionary steps are taken because of the renovation’s proximity to another functioning segment of the hospital. The new William P. Clements Jr. Hospital replaced the 50-year-old St. Paul Hospital. ARC’s expertise ensures the safety of patients, hospital staff and visitors.

Redevelopment

ARC Abatement has made way for two new living spaces in Louisiana. For Park 7 Group, ARC abated and demolished five apartment buildings and three houses on an area spanning 50,000 square feet, which will result in new student apartments. This project was completed on-time and on-budget in four weeks. By January, ARC will have abated and performed minor interior demolition in a 60,000 square foot site, which Herman & Kettle Properties plans to turn into affordable housing. Both are six-figure projects.

Clean Gulf Air

ARC Abatement is smelling the clean Gulf air—a six-figure project has ARC abating asbestos in the turbine room of a power plant in south Texas, near the Gulf of Mexico. Though the boiler room was abandoned nearly a decade ago, and the conditions around the site during the cleanup have been less than ideal, the project is going very well. Environmental cleanup projects such as this one in south Texas are particularly important in coastal areas such as this because of their delicate ecosystems and ocean contiguity.
