Environmental Issues Identified: Asbestos in sprayed-on ceilings, wallboard, and flooring throughout.
Services Provided: Ellis performed pre-demolition asbestos and lead surveys, as well as a Phase I (historical records search) site assessment. Later, Ellis prepared budget cost estimates and specifications for removal of all hazardous materials, and managed the bid phase and demolition process on behalf of the owner.
Summary: Ellis estimated $500,000 in total demolition costs. The winning proposal for the work was offered at $437,000. Bids ranged from $437,000 to $600,000. Ellis worked with the bidders to ensure that at least 50 percent of all building materials will be recycled and re-used. The work was completed one week ahead of schedule, with zero cost overruns.
“Ellis is a great fit for our campus. The staff is friendly, helpful, and guides us when we need direction. We look forward to maintaining our relationship for years to come.”
