KPH Environmental has been awarded a contract by Market & Johnson to manage complete asbestos abatement of an eight-story hotel in downtown Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Formerly the Ramada Convention Center, the hotel located at 205 South Barstow is being redeveloped by Pablo Properties, a group of local Eau Claire investors led by the founder and co-CEO of JAMF Software, Zach Halmstad. KPH Environmental will manage the demolition and abatement of approximately 100,000 square feet of existing stud walls, ceilings and roof materials. The work will allow Market & Johnson crews to begin on general construction of the future Lismore Hotel.
The Eau Claire project adds to KPH’s recent expansion into hospitality, which includes Black Sheep, the Wisconsin International Academy and the much-anticipated Hotel Northland in Green bay, Wisconsin.
“Hospitality is an exciting sector and involves all of the disciplines we have performed for years in commercial construction, healthcare, government and education. We look forward to identifying additional hotel projects throughout the country.” – Keith H. Harenda, KPH founder and owner
