Experience dictates that no two demolition projects are ever exactly the same. At first glance, it may look like just a building or two that need to be removed. In actuality, the demolition work may only begin with the above ground structure(s). Often times there are underground issues and hidden hazards that can go unnoticed to an untrained eye. Toxic waste, asbestos and lead base products are examples of environmental hazards that must be removed by a trained professional as required by such governmental agencies as TAHPR (Texas Asbestos Health Protection Rules regulations). These hidden hazards can wreak havoc to both the construction time line as well as the budget if not property addressed.
At Llewellyn’s Construction, it is our commitment to our customers, the community and the environment, to identify and then properly remove any hazardous materials found on the project site. The safety of our employees and customers depends on our strict adherence to these regulations and this commitment is validated year after year, with our impeccable safety record. Llewellyn’s Construction emphasizes the importance of developing and maintaining a professional and positive alliance with any and all Federal, State and Local regulatory offices associated with a demolition project. Llewellyn’s Construction also participates and processes all documentations required for LEED – certified projects.
This is why Llewellyn’s Construction develops a comprehensive plan for demolition, prior to beginning this phase of the project. One or more walk through tours will be required to insure every scenario has been addressed and properly handled. Those hidden treasures which can save both the environment and our customer’s money are identified at this time and incorporated into the plan. This includes any recycling, re-distribution and/or re-sale options related to the salvageable materials identified and separated from the debris. If there are materials that can’t be recycled or re-used, Llewellyn’s Construction takes every precaution to insure that this debris is removed and disposed of within the proper guidelines.
