Project Name: PCB Abatement & Capping
Location: Aerospace Facility
Job Type: Concrete & Asphalt Construction
E&E Construction was contracted to safely clean and remove polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) contaminated materials, as well as clean and cap the PCB tainted concrete substrate. Great care was used during the removal and cleaning of the potentially harmful materials as this project had to be completed within a working, ten thousand square foot, Aerospace facility. The facility, which remained open during the construction, houses vacuum and air handling machinery, offices, and main electrical power.
Hazardous Material Risks – Performing cleaning and abatement effort while surrounding workers and processes continued to operate.
Short Timeline – All work had to be completed in very short amount of time while plant production continued with no down time.
Access Overhead Mechanical Systems – Safely access overhead piping, ceiling, and walls. Multiple types of man-lifts and scaffolding were used to access hard to reach areas.
