Projects: Asbestos Consulting: Design & Monitoring in Occupied School Building
Industrial Hygiene and Building Sciences
SituationThe client was conducting a school-wide renovation and addition to a 200,000 sq. ft. property with 2,500 students, faculty and staff. The project ran over budget and behind schedule due to ongoing discoveries of hidden asbestos during construction phases. In the course of reviewing these issues, the client determined that a new consultant was necessary. ATC was hired to provide design alternatives and a more streamlined approach.
ATC developed a strategy that dramatically reduced construction delays. After reviewing current practices, we developed a controlled environment for construction activities. Project services included preliminary inspections of each work phase, development of design and scope of work documents for State review, and full time monitoring during asbestos abatement and construction activities.
