Asbestos and Hazardous Materials Assessment – Sidney, Ohio

As part of a Structural and Property Condition Report for the City of Sidney, STONE conducted a visual assessment of Hazardous Materials (Hazmat) for the 50,000+ square foot, 5-story office building planned for demolition. Hazardous materials including regulated and universal wastes were observed throughout the building. This included household size containers of paints, adhesives, cleaning chemicals; coatings and acetone; as well as fluorescent bulbs; light ballasts that may be Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB)-containing; mercury thermostats; air conditioning units; and drinking water fountains that may contain Freon.

The visual assessment included noting suspect asbestos-containing materials (ACM). Suspect ACM was observed throughout. The condition of the material was rated as to the extent of damage. Undamaged material was given an assessment of “good”. Material having less than 25% localized or less than 10% distributed damage was given a “fair” condition assessment. Materials having more than 25% localized or more than 10% distributed damage was given a “poor” condition assessment.
