ARC Denver had a crew at the Colorado School of Mines for two summer months in 2018 abating asbestos on four buildings. The abatement was in preparation for the construction of a four-story parking garage with 650 parking spaces. Our crew of ten technicians abated asbestos on the ductwork, caulking, windows, plaster, drywall, floor tile, and pipe insulation. For scheduling reasons, the techs worked 10-hours a day over 5-day work weeks. Following our work, a total of seven buildings will be demolished by another contractor. The facility is the schools first parking structure, which is located at the NW corner of Maple Street and West Campus Drive. According to Patch.com, “The garage structure will be built into a natural hillside, so that two stories of parking are underground and it appears to be only two stories tall, when viewed from the southeast. The university submitted plans showing a brick and metal facade with glass staircases.” School officials expect the parking garage to open in the Spring of 2020. To learn more, click the links below:
