Floyd Casey Stadium asbestos abatement was handled by us. What an honor. Originally known as Baylor Stadium, the Baylor University Bears first played at this stadium in Waco, Texas in 1950. In 1988, renovations gave it a larger press box and the stadium was renamed after its benefactor, Floyd Casey. In 2016, we removed all asbestos from the structure before it was demolished by Lloyd D. Nabors Demolition. Floor tile, mastic, sheetrock, piping and wall texture containing asbestos was removed. These efforts culminated with an implosion that brought down the remaining bleachers and press box on May 14, 2016. Work performed by ARC made the dust cloud created by Nabors harmless to the environment and safe for the public. The Bears now make their home in the new on-campus McLane Stadium built in 2014.
The Baylor Bear’s Floyd Casey Stadium has a storied past that Ron Daniel of Waco’s ARC Abatement remembers well. Good games, bad seasons, conference championships and a Heisman trophy winner fill his childhood memory bank. Baylor beating Texas A&M under the leadership of Robert Griffin III and the goal posts being torn down in 2008 is one of his favorites. Watch the video. See more photos on Flickr.
