Proposed Development - Georgia

Value of Project: $30,000

Scope: Asbestos Inspection and Demolition Services

The site consists of approximately 56 acres of land, with six residential structures. The County Development Authority wanted to demolish the structures for future development plans. Per the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) regulations, Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) must be identified and categorized based on friability prior to demolition activities.

A certified asbestos inspector performed the asbestos inspection by grouping suspect ACMs into “homogeneous materials” (similar color, texture or time of installation), describing location and extent of material, and collecting bulk samples. Samples were submitted to an accredited laboratory for Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) analysis. Maxis prepared an Asbestos Inspection Report and recommended the appropriate abatement procedures for any ACM identified. Following abatement, Maxis performed demolition services for all the structures located on the property.

Maxis was the lowest, qualified bidder in a competitive bidding process. Maxis unearthed a trash-pit near one of the homes being demolished; debris including cars, boats, tires, etc… were excavated and disposed off-site, which saved the potential property transaction.
