We have been honored to have magazine editors publish many articles we have written to help people stay out of trouble. Cleaning & restoration is a fine publication dedicated to the industry which assists in restoring buildings following fires, floods, and other such unplanned events.
Yes audits, that most feared word. We have been honored to have numerous articles published in Apartment Age over the past two decades.
April-Apartment Age April 2013 EPA Audit article
We identified approximately $125,000 of additional asbestos abatement work at the former exchange building which was to be demolished. The previous asbestos survey was badly deficient, a typical situation with surveys of military facilities. We performed a follow-on survey to identify all of the materials missed by the previous survey, then monitored and documented the abatement work. We issued our report on the abatement work on March 12, 2013.
Regulators hiring means that apartment owners, managers, and contractors need to be even more careful. The details are in this article published in Apartment Age in May of 2012

Today we issued our Follow-On asbestos survey report on Building 100, a historic courtyard hotel, at the March Air Reserve Base. The previous asbestos survey report was severely deficient, as it has missed large quantities of asbestos contaminated soil under the building in the readily accessible crawl space, and friable pipe insulation scattered about the attic contaminating he building insulation.
