• Demolition of St. Elizabeth Apartment Complex

A new water tower was constructed on the east campus of St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, a national historic landmark in Washington, DC, to improve water distribution service east of the Anacostia River. EBA conducted a hazardous materials survey and developed technical specifications to demolish three 4-story apartment buildings (52,500 square feet total) for the project.

The hazardous materials survey focused on identifying potential hazardous building materials that may require removal prior to future renovation and/or demolition activities. The investigation identified the presence and quantities of asbestos-containing materials, lead-based paints, liquid phase polychlorinated biphenyls, ozone-depleting compounds, universal wastes, and other miscellaneous materials. EBA performed all field investigation and sampling activities, reviewed laboratory analysis, and prepared the final report with recommendations for the removal and disposal of hazardous materials.

Based upon the results of the hazardous materials survey and the proposed demolition activity, EBA prepared technical specifications and designed safe methods for the abatement of asbestos-containing materials, lead-based paints, ozone-depleting compounds, and universal wastes. EBA also provided cost estimates for the abatement of hazardous materials.

EBA provided construction phase services related to the abatement of hazardous materials.
