We have completed full lead abatement projects: For example MacDonald Bridge in Calgary: was situated over waterways and within or near parkland & public pathways. Requirements included 100% containment of dust, spent abrasive and paint. We completely encapsulated the entire structure and still maintained operation of the bridge for traffic, which added to the complexity of the project.
(Photo) Horton Spheres in Turner Valley: was situated within a historical property near parkland & public access within the town city limits. Requirements included 100% containment of dust, spent abrasive and paint. We completely encapsulated the entire structure including full ground coverage, which was unique for the shape and size of structure.
Protection of, environment, workers and the public are fundamental in all lead abatement projects. A full lead abatement program is required prior to the start of any lead abatement project that is to be implemented. Including but not limited to:
- Testing and confirmation of levels of lead and other hazardous materials
- Soil testing - conducted before and after the projects to ensure no contamination has occurred due to the operations
- Safety and protection measures for all personnel, and public to ensure protection from lead poising & transporting of lead outside of the restricted area
- 100% collection of all spent materials, testing and disposal of hazardous materials to approved hazardous disposal sites.
- Dust/emissions control.
