Asbestos in Soils

Asbestos is a widely known hazardous material, particularly in its fibrous form. Due to its significant historical use in construction, asbestos containing material (ACM) is often an issue when developing some sites.

At Environmental projects we are routinely engaged to undertake assessment of potential ACM in soils within development areas. We can confirm the visual presence of ACM on the surface and assess the lateral and vertical extent of ACM impacts within the soil profile. We then calculate the concentration of ACM in the soil and, based on the assessment results, prepare remediation strategies for your consideration.
