asbestos / lead

Due to its strength and insulation ability, asbestos has been incorporated into more than 3600 commercial products and used extensively in the construction industry. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, more than 250,000 tons of asbestos were imported and used in American products between 1991 and 2001. Now that the hazardous effects of asbestos are known, proper precautions must be taken when demolishing structures to first determine its presence and then properly dispose of it.

Anderson offers National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) [link to EPA site] inspections for renovation or demolition projects. The inspection will result in a report detailing the type and location of the asbestos, as well as a recommended plan for abatement. Anderson is licensed to inspect for asbestos in Illinois and Wisconsin.

If your building is found to contain asbestos, Anderson can coordinate abatement efforts, ensuring the health and safety of workers involved. Anderson can also perform air monitoring post-abatement to determine if abatement has been completed satisfactorily without an increased risk to building occupants.

If a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment results in suspicion of contamination, a Phase II Soil Boring and Groundwater Investigation must be performed. This step involves sampling the soil and groundwater at and around a site. The samples are then analyzed to determine what hazardous substances are present. Learn More >

CCDD

Clean construction or demolition debris (CCDD) is uncontaminated broken concrete without protruding metal bars, bricks, rock or stone. When uncontaminated soil is mixed with any of these materials, the uncontaminated soil is also considered CCDD. Learn More >
