Asbestos Inspection Services for 80 Residential Houses

Neighborhood Initiative Program

Various Ohio Cities


PROBLEM:

In 2016, grant-funds for environmental services were available to Ohio land banks through the Neighborhood Initiative Program (NIP).  The goal of the NIP was to stabilize property values by removing vacant and blighted properties in targeted areas to prevent future foreclosures for existing homeowners.  NIP provided funds for municipalities to complete asbestos inspections, asbestos abatement and building demolition of dilapidated structures.

SOLUTION:

Phoenix assisted numerous cities (Columbus, Van Wert and Marion) with these quick turn, grant-funded asbestos inspections.   For each dwelling, Phoenix provided the following services:

RESULTS:

Our report indicated six different asbestos building materials were present. Phoenix assisted the client with completion of the “Notification of Demolition” form for the Ohio EPA; provided the client numerous firms that could assist with the asbestos abatement; and reviewed the client’s asbestos abatement contract for the asbestos abatement firms. The project was completed on time and within the proposed budget. The client was satisfied with our report and follow-up activities.

  • Phoenix mobilized an asbestos hazard evaluation specialist to conduct an asbestos survey as required by US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) regulation 40 CFR Part 61, National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) and Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA).
  • Phoenix personnel conducted a visual assessment of the building to identify materials suspected of containing asbestos (suspect ACM) such as thermal system insulation, surfacing materials, and miscellaneous materials (e.g., floor tiles). Suspect materials were physically assessed for friability and evidence of damage or degradation.
  • Phoenix shipped samples via Federal Express to a laboratory accredited by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP). The contract laboratory analyzed bulk material samples by visual estimation using polarized light microscopy (PLM).
  • Phoenix prepared a written report describing the sampling methodology and the results of the survey. The report described the number, type and location of building material samples collected, the analytical results, the estimated quantity and the condition of materials identified as ACM.
  • Samples of suspect ACM were collected for laboratory analysis. Bulk sample collection were conducted in general accordance with the sampling protocols outlined in USEPA 40 CFR 763.86. Sample collection resulted in some isolated damage to building materials; however, attempt were made to limit such damage to the extent necessary for sample collection.

RESULTS:

Phoenix completed over 80 asbestos inspections for these cities.  Per the requirements of these contracts, the asbestos inspections and reports were completed in 15 days or less.
