US AIR FORCE BASE DEMOLITION, ASBESTOS AND LEAD REMOVAL OF AIRCRAFT REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE HANGAR
The project above had several challenges. The military facility is located on a high secure restricted-access area next to top secret aircraft hangars. The project had an aggressive schedule where only highly-skilled abatement workers could perform the tasks needed (asbestos removal and Lead abatement in the exterior of building with high wind exposure, hard and soft demolition, high fall hazard up to 60’ of elevation). There were unforeseen conditions we encountered, where the asbestos-containing-materials listed on the Hazardous Materials Survey consisted of less than 100 s.f. of penetrations mastic, and the environmental consultant identified that the entire structure had various asbestos-containing-materials throughout. Some of the newly identified asbestos-containing-materials contained up to 12% asbestos fibers.
This project consisted of the removal of approximately:
• 60,000 square feet of metal panels that were coated with Lead Base Paint
• Roof Panels with ACM Grey Roof Sprayed Coating approx 26,700 sq.ft./Ceiling Panels with ACM Caulking approx 32,040 l.f.
• Exterior Wall Panel ACM Caulking approx 2,726 l.f.
• Flashing/Perimeter ACM Sealant on the exterior of building approx 722 l.f.
• ACM Grey and White Caulking around door assembly at north and south areas approx 100 s.f.
• Demolition of interior offices and concrete slab
• Lead Paint Removal on Steel Beams to allow new connections for structure reinforcement and new design.
