Asbestos & Lead Paint

GeoTek can perform asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and lead-based paint (LBP) surveys for various client needs. GeoTek will conduct the asbestos services in general accordance with the scope and limitations of the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), codified in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 763 (40 CFR 763), and the lead paint services in general conformance with HUD Title X, currently recognized as the industry standards.

GeoTek will conduct specific building surveys for ACM and/or LBP, inluding the identification of suspect materials, the quantification of suspect materials, the collection of bulk samples, laboratory analysis of samples, and report preparation. Samples will be analyzed by a third-party laboratory with appropriate NVLAP, AHIA, and state certifications.

If asbestos or lead paint is identified, GeoTek can prepare the necessary Management Plan to manage the materials in place until the materials are properly abated.

GeoTek can also serve as project designer for necessary abatement projects, including the preparation of specifications, conducting bidding with abatement contractors, providing contractor supervision services during the abatement activities, and providing final clearance testing as appropriate.
