Asbestos Consulting

Midwest Environmental Consulting Services (MEC) does a variety of asbestos testing, consulting, inspection, and abatement services to both for public and private sector clients. Whether you have a commercial or industrial building or construction project, our licensed asbestos inspectors perform the asbestos testing and create an easy-to-understand report  that lets you know whether the materials we tested have tested are positive or negative for asbestos-containing materials (ACMs).

We can assist with these asbestos-related consulting activities:

  • Comprehensive NESHAP Survey

  • Abatement Project Design & Contractor Bidding

IMPORTANT: Before  any demolition or renovation of a commercial or public building, government regulations require that an asbestos survey  be completed.

Our inspections have been developed with our clients in mind. Depending on your needs, MEC offers either limited asbestos sampling for minor building renovations or comprehensive building inspections for demolition and major renovation projects. MEC’s asbestos consulting services ensure a smooth, cost-effective start to your construction project.

Naturally
Occurring
Asbestos

Asbestos-containing dust can be generated when asbestos-containing geological deposits are broken down through natural weathering or construction activities. This dust poses a severe risk to anyone who inhales it.

All asbestos samples are examined by a licensed analyst from an independent third-party laboratory that is accredited by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and takes part in the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP).

Inspections for
Schools (K-12)

The rules and regulations outlined in the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) require all K-12 schools to conduct 6-month and 3-year asbestos re-inspections in all school buildings. If it’s time for your school to be inspected for asbestos, our state-licensed inspectors will:

  • Perform visual inspections

  • Document any changes in the condition of the asbestos-containing materials

  • Recommend any necessary operations or maintenance activities

  • Forward appropriate paperwork to state agencies to fulfill AHERA requirements create an easy-to-understand inspection report

If an Illinois entity purchases a building and then converts it into a school, by law the owner must perform a new AHERA survey within 60 days.
