Challenges

Expedited pre-renovation Industrial Hygiene (asbestos) survey of select sections of exterior walls within an educational facility slated for installation of doorways and windows. TGE was requested to perform site activities after normal business hours to reduce/preclude interaction with students and/or faculty.

Asbestos-containing moisture barrier within wall cavity

Solution

After extensive pre-renovation survey and discovery of asbestos, TGE coordinated abatement of select areas prior to the planned renovation. Strict monitoring effectively expedited scheduling, ensuring no interference with construction or faculty/student activity.

Outcome

Prompt identification of asbestos-containing materials within the pathway of construction (POC) and swift action ensured an on-time renovation and a safe environment for faculty and students.
