Best Practices for Asbestos Inspection and Remediation in Structures
Research Idea Scope
NESHAP applies to demolition and “renovation” (modification); requires prior inspection for presence of asbestos and remediation prior to demolition/renovation if possible; what’s the best way and time/place to do that? Is it necessary at the environmental document stage to take core samples of structural concrete and analyze for asbestos, or is asbestos-containing aggregate not generally usable due to materials standards in construction so we can write that off? Write-off based on what data?
