The presence of asbestos-containing building materials has the potential to dramatically increase the cost of your redevelopment plans. ASE can help identify these potential costs early on in your due diligence. We can facilitate abatement by an independent third party, if removal is warranted, and provide daily and clearance monitoring services.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicate mineral with long, thin fibrous crystals. Asbestos became increasingly popular among manufacturers and builders in the late 19th century because of its resistance to heat, electrical and chemical damage, found absorption and tensile strength. When asbestos is used for its resistance to fire or heat, the fibers are often mixed with cement or woven into fabric or mats. Asbestos was used in some products for its heat resistance, and in the past was used in buildings for its flame-retardant and insulating properties.
