Asbestos abatement at Pythian Manor Apartments in south Dallas is going strong after starting the project on October 28, 2019. The project will take about five months due to a restrictive schedule of moving tenants in and out to facilitate the work needed to retrofit 76 apartment units. Working only on Mondays and Tuesdays, our crew of eight techs will abate 220,000 square feet of asbestos-containing drywall and texture. The building itself is 170,000 square feet. The project should be completed by mid-March 2020. ARC’s VP of North Texas/General Manager of Dallas Steve Chappell is overseeing the project. The Dallas Morning News covered the Pythian Manor in a Sept. 19, 2019 article.
This is not his first apartment project. Through referrals, Chappell’s crews handled the asbestos abatement on La Sombra’s 22 building apartment complex prior to being demolished by the demolition company. Another Dallas asbestos abatement project was the Tierra Linda Apartment project. His crews handled asbestos abatement and mold removal prior to demolition by the demolition company. His crews also successfully completed an asbestos abatement project on two apartment complexes prior to 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 company on time and on budget.
In 2018 in Austin, Texas Chappell and ARC are playing a part in reshaping the Austin skyline with the abatement of asbestos in the 9-story Ashbel Smith Hall. It was imploded March 25th to make way for a new 37-story, 665,000 SF tower housing retail and office space developed by Trammell Crow. ARC is also abating the historic, 3-story Claudia Taylor Johnson building, which was Austin’s Post Office in the early 1900s. It will be retained and redeveloped. Hear Chappell talk more about the project.
