Power Plant Abatement
Another project under budget and ahead of schedule by ARC’s National Industrial Group. We completed the asbestos and universal waste removal at the Lordsburg Generating Station in New Mexico. Building 1 had Boilers 1-3, and Building 2 had only Boiler number 4. We used ARC-owned scaffolding, and the structure was built by our crew. ARC’s scaffolding meets the industry’s ever-changing safety standards for this and other complex projects. GDS Companies contracted ARC for this 7-figure project.
ARC Denver is near completion on an interior demolition project at the Grand Junction Regional Airport. We removed 20K SF of ceramic tile and thinset along with 2K SF of carpet/mastic, all materials are non-ACM. Work was completed overnight to ensure the least amount of disturbance to operating hours. Project Manager Mercedes Fradl said, “We are working closely with the GC to ensure that the terminal is left in good condition at the end of each shift, prior to the first flight each morning.”
Consulting, Cleaning & More
Our Colorado team completed 55 disinfecting jobs this year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Projects include consultations on disinfecting services tailored to the client’s facility to actually performing the work. Fortunately, our crews are uniquely prepared due to our years of experience in dealing with environmental and biological contaminants. All work is being performed under the CDC guidelines using EPA-approved surface disinfectants.
Army Barrack Renovations
At Fort Polk, Louisiana, we had 13 techs assisting another asbestos company with an abatement project at the barracks on the Army base. The scope of the project included removing and disposing of floor time and mastic as well as ceiling texture. A challenge was working with other contractors whose safety culture was not as stringent as ARCs. The project was shut down multiple times for other contractors’ inabilities, and then they were kicked off the site. The project wrapped up in the six-figure range.
