Pre-Renovation Building Inspection
With over two decades of experience, Midwest Environmental Consulting Services (MEC) is widely recognized as the most consistent provider of pre-renovation building inspections. Before any renovation services ensue, it is a regulatory requirement to survey the property or renovation areas prior to renovation and construction activities.
We aim to reduce the financial risk and liability of our clients. Our team proactively identify environmental and hazardous issues before they become project problems. We achieve this by evaluating the conditions and existing materials compared to the proposed scope of work and demolition plans.
Our report also includes professional recommendations regarding the ACM identified within the project scope. That way, building owners and property managers can develop an understanding of the site’s condition and can make better-informed decisions for renovation. This report is based on structural information you can rely on to manage risk, optimize your renovation investment, and negotiate a fair renovation price with bidders.
Our pre-renovation surveys are designed to meet the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Pollutants and state requirements that must be completed before the demolition or renovation of any school, commercial or public building.
A comprehensive asbestos survey determines ACM locations, quantities and material conditions and recommendations. Using a pre-renovation building inspection to prepare a detailed request for bids reduces misinterpretation and differences of opinion about the scope of your renovation project.
All samples are examined by a licensed analyst from an independent third-party laboratory which is accredited by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and takes part in the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP).
