Hazardous Materials Surveys and Abatement Consulting
DST was retained by Infrastructure Ontario (IO) to conduct Designated Substance and Hazardous Materials surveys of over 870 Government of Ontario buildings. In addition to and concurrent with this scope of work, DST was also retained to conduct detailed room-by-room Asbestos Surveys of 87 provincial buildings throughout Northern Ontario.
The scope of work included a comprehensive review of historic audit/survey reports, site assessments, collection of representative samples in accordance with regulatory requirements, and provision of summary reports and results in a spreadsheet format that could be integrated into IO’s database system. DST coordinated site access for each facility in advance and performed the site surveys. DST collected and analyzed (through a 3rd party accredited laboratory) the required building material samples to satisfy applicable provincial regulatory requirements.
The majority of buildings surveyed by DST were occupied and required careful consideration of building tenants when inspecting occupied areas and collecting building material samples. Whenever possible, samples were collected from areas that were not visible or readily accessible to either the building tenants or the public.
DST’s summary reports included: prioritized recommendations for any remediation works; digital photographs illustrating the location and current condition of representative ACMs; floor plan diagrams, illustrating the general location of all identified ACMs; recommendations for the abatement (repair or replacement) of any deficient or degraded condition, including cost estimates; and a master data table (in Excel) summarizing the results of the survey and sampling program. DST was the prime consultant for the program responsible for all aspects of the asbestos survey.Back
