dscn0492.jpgProperty Description:  An 11-unit apartment complex in West Hollywood. 

In December 2011, the building owner initiated repair and renovation efforts without an asbestos survey and without filing notification to the local Air Quality Management District (AQMD).  The AQMD investigated the site (in which interior demolition had already occurred), then issued a "Notice to Comply," or "NTC."  The NTC stipulated that the Owner retain a California-Certified Asbestos Consultant (CAC) to perform a hazard assessment, including bulk sampling of disturbed materials.  Ellis was retained to provide this service.  If asbestos is identified, Ellis will provide the necessary "Procedure 5" application to the AQMD.  Then, on behalf of the Owner, we'll procure and administer the services of a licensed abatement contractor for all cleanup activities.
