Banner Environmental Services Supports Starr Development’s Restoration Project in Fall River

In case you missed it, we recently shared a recap on the project that focused on bringing life back to the Cornell Mill in Fall River. The mill, built in the 1800’s, is a 192,000 sq foot old cotton mill which operated until the Depression. By July of next year, the Mill will be restored into beautiful one and two-bedroom apartments by Starr Development.

Demolition ProjectBanner Environmental Services worked with Starr Development to provide asbestos abatement and interior demolition services. The flooring and beams which were dismantled were set to be reclaimed throughout the building and the remainder of the salvaged wood set aside for other restoration projects Starr takes on in the future. As part of the overall project, Banner also removed asbestos containing window glaze in preparation for new window installations.

We shared the project update on Facebook and here is what one reader had to say:

“Starr hires some great contractors, and it seems Banner is no exception. Considerable progress, and faster lately. Renovating an 1890 Fall River mill, and doing it right. Not the city’s tallest textile mill, but it has excellent light. I’ve yet to see anything from Starr that was described as “merely adequate” from Starr. Am told windows will be double-pane glass…”

A special shout out and thank you for the kind words, but more so for the opportunity to be a part of such a prestigious project! We too are anxious to see the final restoration! To stay in the loop on our latest projects, be sure to follow us on Facebook here.
