The first phase of master plan improvements to the State of Maryland Correctional Complex in Baltimore City involves demolishing the Baltimore Pre-Release Unit facility, renovating the State Use Industries building, and constructing a new 61,000-square-foot Youth Detention Facility to house 60 detainees. EBA is providing environmental, geotechnical, and civil engineering services for the project.
EBA conducted an environmental records review and hazardous materials survey. The environmental records review included a review of commercially-provided government regulatory database listings and a review of historical references to identify past uses and potential environmental concerns.
The hazardous materials surveys focused on identifying and quantifying potential hazardous building materials including asbestos-containing building materials, lead-based paints, liquid polychlorinated biphenyls, ozone-depleting compounds, universal wastes, and other hazardous materials.
Based upon the results of the environmental records review, hazardous material surveys, and the proposed demolition and renovation activities, EBA prepared technical specifications and designed safe methods for the abatement of hazardous materials. EBA also provided geotechnical services related to the construction of the new building, and civil design and construction document services associated with the demolition of the existing facility and the construction of the new building.
EBA is currently providing construction phase services related to the abatement of hazardous materials.
