Asbestos inspections are performed according to the National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), as well as all applicable state and federal regulations for the site inspected. It is important to note that according to federal guidelines all buildings must be thoroughly inspected, regardless of age, for asbestos, prior to any renovation or demolition.
This may be referenced in EPA Regulation. Asbestos is still manufactured and may be found in many building materials today. Useful information on currently manufactured asbestos (under item 10) can be found on the EPA’s website here: https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/documents/asbestosfaqs_0.pdf

This service may be incorporated into a Phase I or Phase II site assessment or other services WECI provides.
Also: Asbestos Project Design & Monitoring
Project design includes the development of a comprehensive abatement plan according to all state and federal guidelines.
WECI’s plans are developed by licensed project designers to include all aspects of your abatement needs, including operation and maintenance programs, as well as repair, encapsulation, enclosure or removal of asbestos material. This ensures that the abatement confirms to your specific site needs and also makes an excellent pre-bid document for contractors bidding on larger projects that may involve hazardous materials.
In addition to project design and abatement, WECI employs licensed asbestos project monitors to supervise all operations where they are required by law or requested by the client.
The project monitor serves as an independent party from the abatement company that represents the interests of the building owner. The project monitor ensures asbestos contractors follow all appropriate state and federal laws, as well as any special conditions stipulated by the client. Project monitors also collect air samples at the end of abatement activities to ensure safety in building reoccupation.
WECI maintains a licensed asbestos laboratory capable of on-site analysis for asbestos air samples, allowing abatement projects to be concluded rapidly once the material has been properly removed.
In addition, WECI can analyze asbestos air samples collected by abatement contractors or other third parties on various turnaround times. Please contact us for more information regarding our laboratory.
