Environmental Data Management
A service provided to our clients is our document and data hosting service. ACC clients wishing to use this system are provided password protected access to environmental information for each of their buildings via the Client Center page. This system enables our clients to easily access and manage their environmental reports via the Internet.
Clients can access their documents and survey data from any computer with an Internet connection. ACC provides this service because it is important for our clients to retain this information for compliance and risk management purposes. Access to the information helps ensure materials are not inadvertently disturbed. The information can also help defend the client in litigation that may be brought by employees, tenants and construction workers who claim exposure to hazardous materials such as asbestos, lead and mold in their buildings.
