Snyder Environmental was able to staff the project with a team that passed the Yates and Fed-Ex extensive badging process and complete the project ahead of schedule.
The Fed-Ex project scope consisted of approx. 23 existing structures (warehouses, administration offices, hangars, etc.) that had to be demolished and removed to construct a new state-of-the-art sorting facility. To ready these structures for demolition, Snyder Environmental was relied on to perform the asbestos abatement of various ACM’s from floor coverings and Transite siding panels to Thermal Systems insulation and spray applied acoustical ceiling materials. In addition, Snyder performed Lead-Based Paint Stabilization and the packaging, transport, and proper disposal of multiple universal and hazardous waste materials including fluorescent light tubes, light fixture ballasts, battery powered emergency lights, mercury thermostats, waste oils, waste paints, de-icer and numerous other chemical substances.
Asbestos is commonly found in fire-proofing applications, acoustical spray on ceilings, pipe insulation, resilient floor coverings, exterior sidings, caulking, and roofing materials. Asbestos is known for its thermal properties, durability and was very commonly used up until the mid-1970s. An estimated 3,000 products have been manufactured that contain asbestos, and there is still no prohibition on the manufacturing or installation of these materials.
