Contingency Planning for Renovation and Demolition: Managing Hazardous Building Materials is the topic being presented at the Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals (AHMP) 2022 National Conference on March 21st.
Verdantas' Christene Binger, CHMM, and Suzanne Pisano, PE, will address the importance of planning and identifying contingency approaches to manage unanticipated impacts uncovered during renovation and demolition. From asbestos to lead, polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), decontamination requirements, and universal waste management – Christene and Suzanne will discuss the importance of gathering the right data early in a project so that hidden hazardous building materials or ancillary impacts can be identified and cost overruns and schedule delays can be minimized.
In particular, Christene and Suzanne will be referencing a case study of the unique environmental impacts presented by the Hazardous Building Materials Characterization and Abatement Work Plan completed for a historical educational science building, home to not only historical laboratories and biological specimens, but also hidden materials and residue.
