An array of local, state, and federal regulations mandate that property owners and managers take appropriate steps with regard to asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and lead-based paint (LBP). These issues particularly arise during building remodeling or demolition and when conducting due diligence for property transactions.

SoundEarth professionals working in this field are certified and fully qualified to assist you with compliance and risk management at all stages of the real estate cycle. We understand that property transactions and redevelopment are highly time-dependent, so we know how to move quickly and efficiently when your schedule demands it.

We routinely provide a full suite of ACM/LBP services to some of the largest developers and property managers in the western United States. The services include:

  • AHERA asbestos surveys and sampling of suspect material
  • LBP surveys using chip sampling or X-ray fluorescence (XRF) technology
  • Engineers’ cost estimates for abatement
  • Abatement specifications
  • Abatement oversight
  • Demolition management
  • Air monitoring for lead during demolition and excavation
  • Permitting

To round out our building compliance services, SoundEarth offers air quality assessments and profiling, as well as building inspections. We also develop corrective action plans when needed. That means you can resolve all your property management problems with just a single phone call to SoundEarth.
