Auraria Science Center
This project demonstrated ESA’s capability to safely excavate, remove and transport nearly 40,000 cubic yards of asbestos contaminated soil in less than six weeks, while working in the heart of downtown Denver. Working with Haselden Construction and Jacobs Engineering, ESA designed a plan to quickly and safely remove contaminated soils, a buried tank and other hazardous materials. Since the remediation was not part of the original construction schedule, ESA designed a plan that would minimize construction delays. Despite downtown traffic, ESA was able to finish the job in a matter of weeks.
