As interim general manager of ARC’s Broomfield and Grand Junction asbestos abatement operations, Andre Sparks’ projects span the entire state of Colorado, southern Wyoming, and western Nebraska. Asbestos projects under his management include the redevelopment of 101 Broadway in Denver, three apartment buildings for the City of Aurora Housing Authority, Colorado Plains Medical Center, the U.S. Army installation at Fort Carson, five apartment complexes for Boulder Housing Partners, abatement at the Southview Place Towers Apartments, the RTD Civic Center project at Colfax & Broadway in downtown Denver, the complete abatement of Aims Community College – PSI Building, Denver Public Schools, Adams 12 Five Star Schools and University of Colorado – Boulder.
From our Colorado office, we managed many lead abatement projects including the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). Another project was the largest Regulation No. 19 lead cleanup in Colorado’s history, which resulted from a downtown Denver apartment building explosion. With 12 licensed Reg. 19 technicians, the cleanup was completed in just more than two months.

Engineering News-Record’s ranked us 8th in its Top 20 Asbestos Firm 2020 report. “COVID has slowed our total volume by 15%,” said Ron Daniel, founder and CEO of ARC Abatement. “However, with the extra steps of ARC’s COVID safety guidelines, this has been a positive effect on our employees and clients.”
In early March 2020, ARC launched a facility disinfecting service ranging from a customized, comprehensive COVID-19 proactive program to actual cleaning high-touch surfaces. The new service generated hundreds of projects.
With ARC’s expansion in 28-plus states, Daniel believes that company growth will remain strong in 2021, with revenues expected to reach $45M. ARC also will expand next year with new offices in Florida and Utah. Notable projects recently completed and/or underway in the United States include:
- Ten months of asbestos removal at the Meredosia Power Station in Illinois totaling in the mid-seven figures.
- Asbestos removal in several hundred duplexes at Texas State Technical College in Waco, Texas, making way for new student housing.
- Seven-figure asbestos removal at both the Luminant Power Plant in Fairfield, Texas, and the Luminant Power Plant in Mount Pleasant, Texas, completed in 12 months.
In 2020 ARC Abatement celebrated 30 years of hazardous material abatement work. The company has never been dismissed or failed to complete an asbestos abatement, mold remediation, or lead abatement project in its three decades.
ARC Abatement has one of the best safety records across all areas in which it works. It has also earned a very competitive Experience Modification Rating (EMR), allowing one the highest quality insurance and bonding programs in the industry.
