Asbestos Abatement, Selective Demolition
Project thumbnail and header image provided by From the Hip Photo.
ESA was contracted to perform interior abatement and demolition on the former Stanley Aviation Manufacturing Plant under an EPA grant. This project included abatement under containment of all tile, mastic, pipe, pipe fittings, asbestos drywall, and fire brick. The demolition scope included saw-cutting all new window and door openings as well as demolition of all the floor around the existing openings to allow for the installation of oversized archways and porticos. All exterior block filler was abated and demolished under containment. 40,000 square feet of asbestos asphalt was removed from the existing parking lot and transported to the appropriate landfill. Finally, ESA demolished all the existing small buildings on the site.

The companies of EIS have safely completed more than 35,000 asbestos abatement solutions at schools, hospitals, government sites, commercial and industrial facilities, and railroad sites nationwide. We work on projects big and small, from $5,000 to over $20 million, and are consistently ranked among Engineering News Record’s list of Top Abatement Firms in the U.S. EIS companies are licensed for asbestos abatement and removal across the United States with offices located throughout the nation.
Our extensive background and experience have allowed us to successfully conduct asbestos removal solutions for a diverse client base on all types of commercial infrastructure. EIS team members support good communications, prompt attention to paperwork and ensure that work plans are compliant with local, state, and federal regulations. EIS companies are experienced with complying with governmental agencies and regulatory bodies.
With a fleet of heavy equipment, EIS’ demolition division is able to self-perform all aspects of demolition. In addition, we can service facilities nationally, with licenses in most states. Our niche is to provide complete abatement, structural demolition and earthwork services. EIS companies have a class A demolition license and the track record to prepare us for most challenges.
Our demolition teams are experts in the science of precise and safe removal of obsolete structures, their components, and architectural finishes. We employ innovative and successful techniques in the areas of historical preservation, interior renovation, selective dismantling or total demolition.
EIS companies provide the seamless addition of performing selective and interior demolition for non-hazardous building materials. Whether the work requires the complete demolition of non-structural interior walls, ceilings, finishes and even utilities, or the strategic and selective removal of an exterior component or the creation of building openings, special care is given to provide clients with the schedules and precise coordination that addresses more of the total project operational needs.
All projects are performed with the utmost concern for employee safety and the specific technical and control requirements of the work. Because of our expertise in environmental cleaning, interior demolition projects are equally performed with stringent debris controls and the concern for limiting vibration, noise and dust. Many of our employees that execute this work are also experienced environmental professionals and all employees on the work sites have the necessary training, PPE and applicable OSHA certifications. EIS companies perform this work in commercial buildings, retail spaces, hospitals, industrial sites, governmental structures, military facilities and bridges across the nation.
EIS partners have the unique equipment and expertise needed to perform ultra-high pressure (up to 40,000 PSI) water blasting “Spin-Jet” coating removal. The process uses a self-contained Vac-loader unit creating its own negative pressure within the housing. The vacuum-assisted housing is where the spinning bar, made up of several nozzles, impacts the coating. All debris is removed with a vacuum hose connected to a vacuum box attached to the Vac-loader. The result is an emission-free system that leaves a clean, dry surface. The only waste generated is the coating and some residual water that is filtered and safely disposed of. This process can also be used for coatings containing lead, asbestos and other hazardous and non-hazardous materials.
