In Fort Collins, Colorado, ARC is once again on the campus of Colorado State University for the school’s new Housing & Dining Services home, Meridian Village. The near seven-figure project includes almost 34,000 sq ft of asbestos abatement in Aylesworth Hall, one of two dorm sites that will become Meridian Village. The project also includes the removal and disposal of more than 1,800 windows with asbestos-containing glazing compounds and caulking. Since the university has used our services in the past and knows first-hand our reputation, school officials opted for the condensed schedule, so our crew of 20-30 started March 14, 2019, and will finish June 7, 2019. Upon completion of our abatement work, another contractor will handle the demolition.
According to the university website, CSU Housing & Dining is working to stay at the forefront of students’ needs. “We are in the process of selecting a team that will help us design new residence halls and a new dining facility that will be called Meridian Village,” said Mari Strombom, executive director of Housing & Dining Services at CSU. “We are currently projecting a net gain of 600 beds when this project is complete. We hope to have 300 new beds available for fall 2021 and the remainder of the beds online by fall 2023.” Read more about CSU’s future here. And following this project, we hope to do more work for the CSU Rams!
