CHARACTERIZATION OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

Over the years, Le Groupe GESFOR has also grown its expertise in performing characterizations of hazardous building materials such as lead, mercury, PCBs, ODSs and beryllium.

 

We can determine where hazardous materials are located, what their impact would be if disturbed, and whether or not they have contaminated other materials. Our team of professional technologists and engineers can carry out characterizations before maintenance, renovation or demolition work is undertaken.

 

A typical characterization includes collection and analysis of samples as well as identification of materials and equipment according to location and condition. All of this information is then compiled into a report and issued with recommendations.

 

DRAFTING ABATEMENT SPECIFICATIONS

If abatement work is necessary, we can draft specifications for the tendering process and abatement work, and also provide worksite monitoring. Our specifications are prepared in compliance with current legislation and standards as well as best practices.

 

OUR SERVICES

  • Characterizing hazardous materials
  • Analyzing materials
  • Drafting characterization reports with recommendations
  • Creating hazardous materials management programs
  • Developing abatement specifications
  • Managing and supervising decontamination work
  • Sampling and analyzing air tests


 

 

MOULD ASSESSMENT AND REMEDIATION IN BUILDINGS

 

Since 2000, Le Groupe GESFOR has been perfecting its expertise in assessing mould growth, one of the common causes of poor air quality.

 

Our team of experienced industrial hygienists, professional technologists and engineers assess all the possible sources of mould contamination based on water infiltration history.

 

Our assessments include sampling and analysis of materials that are likely contaminated by mould growth as well as identification of contaminated materials according to type, location and condition. All of this information is then compiled into a report and issued with recommendations.

 

MOULD REMEDIATION SPECIFICATIONS

 

If remediation work is necessary, we can draft specifications for the tendering process and remediation work, as well as perform air and worksite monitoring. Our specifications are prepared in compliance with the Canadian Construction Association’s Mould Guidelines for the Canadian Construction Industry (CCA 82-2004).
