Phoenix Case Study One
Breaking Down the Walls
Selective demolition of block walls containing asbestos containing vermiculite. Working side by side with a General contractor on an active public library.If the efforts by City agencies to improve the local public buildings, they ran across unexpected hurdles and expenditures.With little wiggle room in the schedule or budget, the agency worked with SHC to develop the methods, time tables and required safety precautions that were developed with the public in mind.
Daily safety meetings were held to review and assess the safety and ever changing. SHC performed saw cutting on pre marked sections to allow for new doorways. In other areas, complete demolition of selected walls was performed to allow for expansion of the building.All materials were handled as asbestos containing materials and kept wet, labeled and wrapped as needed. Performing demolition from scaffold in a safe and quiet manner is difficult in any situation, however doing it in suits and respirators make this task more challenging in the heat of the Arizona sun.
This abatement project was completed in approximately 4 weeks from when the appropriate permits were valid and completion. We removed 80 cubic yards of asbestos waste from the site.Upon substantial completion of the project third party air sampling verified the ability to deregulate the area and return the areas to the owner.During the course of this project the regulatory agency inspected the area two times and found no items of violation. SHC had no safety violations and completed this project on time.
