Hazardous Materials Surveys
What materials are classified as hazardous? The regulations surrounding the classification of hazardous materials and hazardous wastes differ from country to country but we have specialists around the world experienced in the management and resolution of the complicated risks surrounding hazardous materials and wastes.
Building materials often contain substances which become hazardous when deterioration occurs. And when buildings are decommissioned or demolished, these materials are sometimes exposed to the surrounding environment.
Our expertise in identifying and resolving related risks have been developed through direct involvement from within the built environment, through demolition and re-development schemes, in decommissioning projects, and through technical due diligence and corporate health, safety and environmental audits. This enables us to deliver commercially pragmatic solutions to specific areas of risk within almost any working arena.
We can provide:
- Asbestos risk management solutions
- Asbestos and hazardous material surveys
- Management of asbestos abatement and remediation
- Contaminated land investigations for asbestos and remediation strategies
- Decommissioning and demolition management
- Health, safety and environmental auditing
- Occupational hygiene and water quality
- Indoor air quality assessments
The cost savings in waste transfer and disposal that we achieve through combining our investigations with asbestos abatement and soil and groundwater remediation strategies has certainly proved attractive to our clients.
Strategic Asbestos Support for Jumeirah
Jumeirah Garden City (JGC) is the largest urban renewal project in the Middle East with a geographical footprint which extends 9,870,000m2. A project of this scale puts pressure on its developer to ensure compliance with environmental legislation. MERAAS Development asked us to design and implement an asbestos management strategy in order to mitigate the risk of asbestos throughout the site clearance phase of this project.
