The Historic Baker Hotel Solution

The Historic Baker Hotel

1 Priority Environmental Services abated asbestos and lead paint materials and performed selective interior demolition of a 90 year old, 12 store building in preparation for the remodel. This was the first phase of this long awaited restoration of a Texas landmark.

1 Priority had looked at the abatement of this building for decades and for many owners. Because this was a historical building and a Texas Landmark, the best firms with the most knowledge and applicable experience had to be selected. 1 Priority performed the work on time, under budget and surpassed the expectations of the client.

About the The Historic Baker Hotel

The work started with the clean up of 50 years of asbestos contaminated debris due to building neglect, vandalism and failing interior finishes.  Work then commenced with the methodical abatement of ceilings, walls, flooring, windows and thermal system insulations.  Simultaneously, interior walls, outside of the abatement scope had to be selectively demolished while being sure to leave historical features in tack.  All phases of the work were videoed by the owner’s crews as part of an upcoming documentary about the total restoration and revitalization of the historic Baker Hotel.

With a fleet of heavy equipment, EIS’ demolition division is able to self-perform all aspects of demolition. In addition, we can service facilities nationally, with licenses in most states. Our niche is to provide complete abatement, structural demolition and earthwork services. EIS companies have a class A demolition license and the track record to prepare us for most challenges. 

Our demolition teams are experts in the science of precise and safe removal of obsolete structures, their components, and architectural finishes. We employ innovative and successful techniques in the areas of historical preservation, interior renovation, selective dismantling or total demolition.

EIS companies provide the seamless addition of performing selective and interior demolition for non-hazardous building materials. Whether the work requires the complete demolition of non-structural interior walls, ceilings, finishes and even utilities, or the strategic and selective removal of an exterior component or the creation of building openings, special care is given to provide clients with the schedules and precise coordination that addresses more of the total project operational needs.

All projects are performed with the utmost concern for employee safety and the specific technical and control requirements of the work. Because of our expertise in environmental cleaning, interior demolition projects are equally performed with stringent debris controls and the concern for limiting vibration, noise and dust. Many of our employees that execute this work are also experienced environmental professionals and all employees on the work sites have the necessary training, PPE and applicable OSHA certifications. EIS companies perform this work in commercial buildings, retail spaces, hospitals, industrial sites, governmental structures, military facilities and bridges across the nation.
