Asbestos Services

BBG provides a full suite of asbestos consulting services to identify the presence of asbestos, determine the health risk and remove the asbestos hazard.

The mere presence of asbestos in a building is not hazardous. The danger is that asbestos materials may become damaged over time. Damaged asbestos may release asbestos fibers into the air and become a health hazard.

    Surveys to Identify Asbestos:

    Acquisition Screen – This is a screening of major “big ticket” materials within the building and is completed during a real estate transaction as part of the due diligence.  

    Operations & Maintenance – This is a baseline survey that includes sampling and analysis of materials that would be impacted by normal building operations or maintenance. 

    Pre-Renovation Survey – This survey is completed prior to a planned renovation. The EPA requires this survey prior to any renovation activities to ensure any materials impacted by the renovation are analyzed for asbestos. 

    Pre-Demolition Survey – This is the most comprehensive scope of work that includes evaluating an entire building for the presence of asbestos prior to demolition. 

    Asbestos Project Design and Bid Services: BBG works cooperatively with our clients to develop a tailored scope of work to remove the asbestos hazard in accordance with Federal and State regulations.  

    Asbestos Abatement Project Management and On-Site Abatement Monitoring: Once an abatement contractor has been selected and placed under contract, BBG can provide project management to usher the project to completion.
