Hazardous Material Remediation and Building Demolition – Ashtabula, Ohio

At this former Union Carbide facility, STONE was contracted to assess and manage its potential environmental legacies. At the former administration building, STONE assessed the building for the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACM), fluorescent lamp ballasts, mercury-containing thermostats, and Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB)-containing electrical equipment. STONE then developed demolition plans and specifications that included the removal of all hazardous materials followed by complete demolition of the two-story structure. Building utilities were identified and cut off. The building was removed to its foundation and the area graded and seeded.

At another manufacturing building on the property, STONE sampled dust on the building beams and rafters and documented concentrations of chromium and asbestos. Specifications were developed, a remediation contractor hired, and abatement proceeded. STONE provided on-site observation of the contractor and performed compliance sampling of the cleaned surfaces.

“STONE is an instrumental part of our team on the Portsmouth By-Pass Project: the 16-mile new construction project, which is the single largest project in ODOT history. This project has come with more than its share of environmental challenges. STONE has delivered over 30 full environmental clearance reviews and reports we have requested as part of the project, handling them from start to finish in a very timely & cost effective manner. Furthermore, they’ve proven themselves as an extremely valuable resource when it comes to consulting on mitigation efforts, hazardous materials, and resolving various unknown environmental situations that the project has encountered.

 

From the top down STONE has proven they are committed to excellence and we look forward to working with them on many projects in the future.”
