Asbestos Abatement and Finishes

Department of Veterans Affairs – Durham VA Medical Center, Durham, NC

What We Did

Breathe easy!

Atriax provided a comprehensive review of the VA’s existing asbestos reports, verified the location and condition of asbestos materials, and determined the extent, methods, and requirements of the removal with the integration of phasing for the project. Air monitoring during asbestos removal operations included air sampling and testing with a final air clearance sampling prior to allowing staff/patients to re-enter the areas.
