EFI Global's asbestos and lead professionals have considerable expertise in managing and performing inspections related to asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and lead-based paint (LBP) at sites ranging from small stand alone buildings to facilities with multiple locations. We have completed work in a variety of facilities including commercial, industrial, medical, educational, multi-family, hotels, retail and government. Our experience includes performing limited, as well as comprehensive, surveys for renovation or demolition, preparation of abatement plans and specifications, bidding, contract negotiation, demolition/disposal/construction monitoring and final clearance sampling.
Our asbestos experts are accredited building inspectors and management planners under the EPA Asbestos Hazardous Emergency Response Act (AHERA) and are state licensed. To ensure the quality of our survey work and reports, we also have a time-proven quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program where work plans and deliverables are reviewed by a senior professional prior to submittal.
Our asbestos and lead consulting services are provided as part of our hazardous materials consulting services that also include other building materials that may contain polychlorinated bi-phenyls (PCBs) in caulking and other coatings, heavy metals and other contaminants in a building setting. We perform comprehensive hazardous materials inventory assessments, including asbestos, lead paint and other hazardous materials to guide our clients on their proper handling and disposal. Our team also consults with architects, engineers, owners and managers to provide asbestos abatement, lead abatement and hazardous materials remediation design specifications for construction projects.
As part of the abatement process, we perform oversight, air monitoring of adjacent (and sometimes occupied) building spaces and on-site microscopy of air samples for immediate turnaround of air clearance samples.
We provide QA/QC of the abatement process to ensure safety during and after the abatement and remediation process.
