Since our founding in 1994 we’ve administered more than $62 million in abatement and demolition projects for some of the most demanding studios, hospitals and universities in Southern California.
While we do many things, the process of working with us is simple:
Step 1 – TEST. You cannot estimate costs or procure quotes for removal of asbestos until those materials are accurately identified and quantified. This is Ellis’ primary service. Ellis’ licensed, EPA-certified building inspectors will submit physical samples to a NVLAP accredited laboratory. In its subsequent report, Ellis will tell you whether or not the area you’ll renovating or demolishing contains asbestos. If no asbestos is identified, you may simply provide a copy of our report to local permitting agencies and your general contractor. When asbestos IS identified, continue on to Step 2 below.
Step 2 – PROCURE QUOTES for Abatement. Where asbestos is identified and when abatement is required, you will need a clear and simple work plan to show to bidding contractors. Ellis provides this service. On your behalf, we will give contractors a clear idea of the work required. When the scope of work is clear, bids are lowered. Ellis’ fees are usually exceeded by the cost savings produced by this single effort.
Step 3: ADMINISTER THE PROJECT. After bids are received, you will need a representative - an experienced professional acting on your behalf - to manage the process on a daily basis. This will include pre-abatement and post-abatement inspections, monitoring of adjacent areas during the work, final inspection and clearance sampling. We are your eyes and ears inside the asbestos removal work area. Ellis’ final clearance notice, signed by a California certified asbestos consultant, is the legal document that you and your general contractor need to continue your project.
Choosing the right firm to do the testing - and keeping that firm by your side through the entire abatement process - is your fastest, least expensive, long-term solution. Ellis Environmental; your best choice to avoid costly mistakes and delays.
