IVI has established itself as an industry leader in the field of asbestos management, testing, consulting, and abatement. We have successfully completed thousands of asbestos surveys, and designed and managed hundreds of abatement projects.
IVI helps building owners and managers meet their regulatory requirements to test suspect materials for asbestos prior to renovation or construction activities. To ensure quality, our certified professionals perform all investigative fieldwork in accordance with USEPA, AHERA and state level protocols. Following the field and laboratory work, IVI provides a comprehensive report of findings that includes the locations, sample results, quantities, material condition, potential for disturbance, and cost estimates for removal.
IVI obtains competitive prices from abatement contractors, and our project managers ensure that the work is properly performed. IVI provides turnkey asbestos management services from testing and investigation, to the development of drawings and specifications, contract preparation and solicitation, and project monitoring through final clearance air testing and closeout. Our drawings and specifications provide contractors with project requirements and a well-defined scope of work, ensuring success while minimizing change orders.
IVI coordinates and manages all aspects of asbestos abatement projects. Before abatement work begins, IVI ensures that the containment and decontamination facilities are properly constructed. During the project, the IVI project monitor conducts required air monitoring and observes the contractor's activities to ensure that the work is properly performed. Once abatement is completed and before the containment is removed, the IVI project monitor performs a visual inspection and an aggressive clearance air monitoring of the work area to ensure the area is safe for re-occupancy and will obtain regulatory closure.
For most buildings with asbestos, the EPA recommends the development of an asbestos operations and management program to communicate the locations of asbestos to appropriate parties and train building employees on how to work safely around asbestos containing materials.
