Project: Industrial Asbestos Abatement – Former GAF facility
Client: Available upon request
Location: New Jersey
The MACK Group, LLC completed the contract to perform asbestos abatement and asbestos removal services at the former GAF facility located in South Bound Brook, New Jersey. The facility, which is over 100 years old, is situated on approximately 10.5 acres and consists of 17 buildings and other various structures.
The asbestos removal project consisted of asbestos abatement of 300,000 sf of asbestos transite roof & siding panels, 100,000 sf of asbestos built-up roofing, 11,000 ft of asbestos piping, 15,000 sf of asbestos tile & mastic, three 5 story high industrial asbestos boilers, and the removal of several hundred tons of asbestos-contaminated soil.
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). Proper asbestos wetting, removal, and handling techniques were employed to safely remove the materials. The Mack Group, LLC 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 following 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.
Because the former plant had been vacant for a long period of time all utilities were disconnected. The MACK Group, LLC. utilized their large onsite generators to supply all power for the 60 HEPA negative air filtration units used inside work area containments. The MACK Group, LLC. also utilized a Terminator floor scraping machine, bobcats, aerial lifts, chutes, and twenty of their NJ licensed asbestos workers to bring in the project ahead of schedule and without injury.
Following asbestos abatement activities, the buildings were then demolished.
The MACK Group, LLC provides nationwide asbestos abatement, asbestos removal, and demolition contractor services. Contractor services include asbestos abatement, asbestos removal, transite removal, asbestos roof removal, demolition, Terminator flooring removals, floor removal contractor services, Shot Blast/Blastrac services, and fluorescent bulb and ballast recycling services.
