Why Inspect For Asbestos? It’s The Law
How we can help you with regard to asbestos:
1. Building Inspections / Surveys
Syntech personnel have extensive experience in providing asbestos inspections/surveys and management services in conjunction with demolition and renovation projects. Prior to renovation or demolition, affected areas must be inspected for the presence or absence of asbestos-containing materials (ACM). In Maricopa County the building owner/operator should have an inspection or re-inspection within the last 12 months before starting any renovation or demolition projects. Based on survey information and the type of project, an abatement specification or management plan is developed.

- Emergency Renovation Inspections/Bulk Sampling (fire and flood damaged homes and facilities)
- OHSA/NESHAP Compliance
- AHERA Inspections, AHERA Periodic Inspections and AHERA 3 Year Re-Inspections

EPA 40 CFR 61.145 (a)
“…the owner or operator of a demolition or renovation activity and prior to the commencement of the demolition or renovation, thoroughly inspect the affected facility or part of the facility where the demolition or renovation operation will occur for the presence of asbestos, including Category I and Category II non-friable ACM.” *(All facilities, regardless of the date of construction)
2. Plans, Specifications, & Bidding Documents
To assist our clients acquire competitive quotes from abatement contractors and to make certain the work is properly performed, Syntech provides turnkey asbestos management services from development of plans and specifications through final clearance air testing. Plans and specifications provide contractors with project requirements and a well defined scope of work, ensuring success and avoidance of costly change orders.
3. Abatement Project Management
Syntech will coordinate and manage all phases of the asbestos abatement project. Before abatement work begins, Syntech personnel ensure that the containment and decontamination chambers are appropriately constructed. During the project, the Syntech field technician performs daily air monitoring inside and outside the containment and observes and documents the contractor’s daily activities to make certain the work is appropriately performed. Once abatement is completed and before the containment is removed, the Syntech field technician performs a visual inspection and final clearance air sampling of the work area to make certain the work area is safe for re-occupancy.
