Bid Phase and Abatement Monitoring

abatement_administraton.jpgIf you've had testing done, and now want help with the bid phase of an asbestos or damaged lead paint project, perhaps something during the testing phase wasn't satisfactory. Questions remain, or you may not be confident your interests will be fully represented in the process moving forward.

We understand. Much about the entire process of testing, removal cost estimating and abatement is like a foreign language. We work hard to make sure our clients understand every step of the process, what are fair and reasonable costs, and that they are confident their best interests are being represented at all times.

When abatement is required, you will need a clear and simple work plan to show to bidding contractors. Ellis provides this service. When contractors are given a clear idea of the work required - when the scope of work is clear - bids are lowered.

After bids are received and the abatement or demolition project begins, you will need a representative – an experienced advocate – 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. Ellis provides this service as well.
