Hazardous Building Materials

Interior view of building with hazardous materials

Hazardous building materials (asbestos, lead-based paint, PCBs, etc.) present public health and environmental safety dangers. Fuss & O’Neill’s licensed and experienced technical professionals provide inspection, monitoring, design, and management planning to eliminate risks and hazards. Our team investigates and remediates sites to create and/or restore a healthy environment, which improves human and environmental conditions, and creates opportunities for redevelopment, renovation, expansion, and/or demolition.

Fuss & O’Neill’s technical specialists have a thorough understanding of federal, state, and local regulations, and are continuously trained in inspection, design, management planning, and monitoring techniques. Each site is unique, and we create abatement and management plans that are tailored to the site and that are considerate of future plans. We understand the need for sensitivity when working at operating sites and the critical need to protect the health of those affected by environmental hazards. Historically, environmental justice communities have been made disproportionately vulnerable, and we have experience creating informational materials and providing public outreach in a multitude of ways to facilitate effective communication. Fuss & O’Neill is a project partner, assisting our clients through every step of the environmental cleanup process, creating potential and opportunity, while also bettering our built and natural environments.
