Texas Big: Asbestos Abatement Dallas

Likely the largest asbestos abatement project in the state of Texas, 1401 Elm Street in downtown Dallas is perfectly suited for ARC GM/VP Steve Chappell. Elm Place is 52-stories and 1.2 million square feet. A challenging aspect of the project is the sheer volume of materials to be abated is approximately five million square feet of materials. His crews are using of 12 of the 27 operating elevators to move the materials. After a change of ownership delayed the project for several months, ARC got back on the job when the redevelopment was back on track under the new ownership. ARC tackled the bottom seven floors plus two lower level floors. The crew increased from 60 to 80-100 workers who completed the eight-figure project at the end of 2016. Read more.

On another Dallas project, Chappell managed the asbestos abatement on approximately one million SF at a section of a hospital campus, which is no longer in use. His crews removed hazardous material from the historic location before a partner company completed a mechanical take-down technique on a portion of the facility. These precautionary steps were taken because renovation work was being done in proximity to another functioning segment of the hospital. 

Chappell also oversaw the asbestos abatement and removal on the 20-story, 500,000+ square foot former Statler Hilton hotel in Dallas. The seven-figure project was completed in October 2014.   It was here that Tina Turner snuck down the back stairs when she left her husband for good in 1976.

Chappell’s crews handled the asbestos abatement on La Sombra’s 22 building apartment complex. Another Dallas asbestos abatement project was the Tierra Linda Apartment complex.  His crews handled asbestos abatement and mold removal. His crews also successfully completed an asbestos abatement project on two apartment complexes. The property will eventually be turned into retail mixed-use and redevelopment.

Safe removal of asbestos from buildings owned by First Baptist Church Dallas prior to the 2010 implosion. Chappell turned over the “asbestos free” site to the demolition firm on time and on budget.
