Environmental and Hazardous Materials Investigations for Redevelopment – Former Industrial Facility – Columbus, Ohio
STONE conducted a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) at this former manufacturer and distributor of gaskets. The Phase I ESA investigation found recognized environmental conditions (RECs) associated with past and current uses of the site and surrounding properties. Historical findings in addition to the rubber manufacturing on the property included plating operations, painting, oil-fired boiler, and oil-filled transformers. In addition, existing groundwater monitoring wells were present on the site. Phase II ESA investigations were conducted to further investigate these conditions. This included soil and groundwater sampling and analysis, soil vapor intrusion investigations, and sub-slab soil vapor sampling. The findings of these additional investigations were evaluated and recommendations were made to enable the property to be redeveloped for commercial use.
STONE also conducted a Comprehensive Asbestos Survey and Regulated Hazardous Materials Assessment. This survey included the collection of over 200 samples for asbestos analysis and an inventory of other hazardous materials in this 60,000 square-foot building. The project was completed according to strict time and budget constraints.
