Hazardous Materials Investigations

CDW has extensive experience conducting pre-renovation assessments for the presence of oil, hazardous materials, asbestos-containing materials, and lead-based paint. After a thorough investigation and review of building plans, our skilled staff performs comprehensive pre-renovation testing of building materials, and then uses the results of the testing to develop construction documents, including engineering specifications for the handling and abatement of hazardous substances present for incorporation into contract bid packages.

Our construction services also include project monitoring, clearance sampling, and additional testing of hidden hazardous substances encountered during construction, as well as advising clients and contractors on how to appropriately handle and dispose of these substances. CDW has successfully completed many of these time-critical projects, which require thorough and complete bid documents as well as responsiveness to construction issues.
