Foothills Environmental has been awarded a five year contract with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). Foothills Environmental will be providing asbestos and lead-based paint inspections of CDOT owned properties throughout Colorado. We have worked on many CDOT projects as a subcontractor, so it’s great to finally work directly with CDOT and support their mission.
Foothills Environmental has been awarded a five year contract for Industrial Hygiene services with the City & County of Denver. Some of the services we will be providing include:
- Asbestos Inspections of Denver owned properties
- Asbestos Remediation Oversight
- Bid Package and Work Plan Preparation
- Lead Based Paint Inspections
- Indoor Air Quality Assessment
- Mold Investigations
- Hazardous Materials and Universal Waste Inventories
Much of the work will be in support of the National Western Complex and Denver Coliseum re-development. Many of the properties in the area will require environmental assessments, abatement and remediation. Foothills Environmental is excited to be part of this project to improve this historic area.
Foothills Environmental recently won and completed a contract with the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA). The project involved the inspection of 36 Microwave and Generator Buildings located in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Wyoming. Each building was inspected for Asbestos, Lead Based Paint and PCBs. The purpose of the inspections is to facilitate future construction and renovation projects to be completed by WAPA in the future. The project was completed on time and within budget.
Foothills Environmental and Envirocon have teamed to provide Beryllium Abatement Services for Commercial and Government Customers. This venture combines the strengths of Foothills Industrial Hygiene capabilities with Envirocon’s project delivery and operations strengths. Our safety and health professionals realize that the unique toxicological properties of beryllium make it difficult, if not impossible; to know what exposure limits can guarantee no risk of disease, we have instituted controls designed to minimize the potential for risk to the workers and the long-term liabilities for our clients. In addition, we maintain a network of trained and experienced Beryllium workers and strive to limit addition of workers into long-term Beryllium Monitoring Programs.
The Beryllium-related services offered by Foothills/Envirocon include:
- Beryllium Project Management and Planning
- Work Hazard Analysis
- Beryllium Survey Design and Implementation
- Beryllium Program Management and Administration
- Facility Decontamination
- Occupational Monitoring
- Waste Management – Handling & Packaging of Beryllium Contaminated Equipment
Foothills and Envirocon performed Beryllium Abatement Services at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. We successfully decontaminated 395,000 cubic feet of Beryllium contaminated work space at LLNL. These decontamination efforts were performed to allow reuse of industrial space that was shut down due to high levels of Beryllium contamination. Additional details including project reference information are presented in the Project Description titled LLNL Beryllium Abatement Project.
