Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber found in certain geologic formations. Its outstanding physical properties once made it the building material of choice for insulation, fireproofing and a variety of specialty applications. Its chemical inertness suggested that, from a health perspective, it was completely benign. Thus, the initial news of asbestos’s staggering hazardousness was met with widespread disbelief. The safe handling and removal of building materials that contain asbestos is one of OTO’s core specialties. The intelligent understanding and planning of both stabilization and removal projects can make all the difference in maintaining project safety and predictable costs. We also strive to minimize disruption to your business and other indoor activities. OTO designs asbestos projects around your specific needs, never losing sight of public health and safety.
