The MACK Group, LLC, premier asbestos removal and abatement contractor, recently completed the removal of asbestos-containing sheetrock walls and floor tile at a large conglomerate’s facility in New Jersey.
A large Fortune 500 conglomerate needed to have asbestos abatement activities conducted at their facility with attention to safety and schedule. In addition, the client had a tight budget and required the work to be done with no dust emissions.
The MACK Group, LLC (MACK) was selected based on their economic approach to the project, their impeccable safety record and adherence to all laws, rules, and regulations as well as their commitment to meet the tight schedule.
Asbestos-containing materials (ACM) at the site that required abatement included 10,000 square feet of asbestos sheetrock walls with spackle. In addition, there were 6,200 square feet of ACM floor tiles with mastic. Before asbestos abatement activities, a 10-day notification was submitted which is a written notification of intention to demolish following 40 CFR 61.145 to 61.155 and N.J.A.C. 7:26-2.12(d) and (e). All utilities were also disconnected.
All work was performed following all OSHA & EPA regulations as they pertain to asbestos abatement. In addition, all OSHA and other safety regulations were followed as safety is paramount on all of the Mack Group’s projects.
Mobilization to the site required that several tasks be completed with attention to detail. This included the placement of all required signage on all entrances to the work area, installing connections to electricity and water, and the building of separation barriers and a decontamination facility. Each area was sealed off utilizing plastic sheeting. Negative air with HEPA air filtration machines was also installed so that any potential dust created would not leave the work area. Quality Assurance / Quality Control (QA/QC) inspection was performed by The MACK’s competent person.
To remove the tile and mastic, MACK used a combination of proprietary flooring removal ride-on machines and shot blaster machines that they own in their fleet of abatement equipment. These machines allowed MACK to easily remove the tile and mastic down to the original concrete floor surface.
The other ACM was abated by using proper asbestos wetting, removal, and handling techniques to safely remove the materials. MACK used various techniques to remove the asbestos materials including wetting all friable ACM and bagging the ACM using poly-wrapping. Also utilized were the wetting and direct placement inlined (at least 6 mils thick liner) and sealed bulk containers.
The transportation of asbestos and ACM was in accordance with N.J.A.C. 7:26-3.5(d) and by registered New Jersey solid waste vehicles. ACM was then properly disposed of at a licensed landfill.
The project was completed without incident or injury and on schedule.
