OUR ROLE


AKT Peerless conducted a pre-demolition asbestos identification survey to comply with National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) standards. In addition to asbestos identification, AKT Peerless also inventoried other environmentally regulated materials (hazmat) that require removal in advance of building demolition. Upon completion of the asbestos and hazmat inventories, AKT Peerless prepared technical abatement specifications and assisted the City of Monroe with environmental abatement and demolition contractor bidding and selection.  During environmental abatement, AKT Peerless will represent the City of Monroe by providing oversight of the processes, air monitoring, reconciliation of environmental material quantities removed, and final clearance testing.

THE RESULTS


AKT Peerless conducted destructive investigation and identified numerous asbestos and hazardous material sources throughout the buildings at the former La-Z-Boy manufacturing facility that will require removal prior to building demolition. AKT Peerless’ onsite personnel will ensure that removal processes meet regulatory compliance standards.
