ARC Denver removed and disposed of approximately 2,800 SF of wood siding on which lead-based paint had been applied. The toxic siding had been installed on the exterior of a house and garage on Quitman Street in Denver. Scaffolding was placed around the main structure to get to the siding in a regulated area. Our techs also cleaned all visible paint chips that had fallen onto the ground. The five-figure project started on February 25, 2019, and was completed in a week. As standard, we used proper PPE and proper engineering controls per RRP guidelines. Scaffolding removal is scheduled for Sunday, May 24, 2019, after the new siding is completed by the general contractor.
ARC Denver General Manager Mike Griffin oversaw the project. On projects such as this size, Griffin says, “We sub the bigger scaffold jobs here. Midwest Scaffolding did this for us.” ARC’s Industrial Division recently took delivery of several truckloads of scaffolding making us the single source for scaffolding, asbestos abatement, and lead abatement in several regions of the U.S. Read more ARC case studies on the homepage.
