Lead Paint Removal
Snyder Environmental helped our Little Rock youth to grow and prosper by helping provide them a safe and clean educational environment.
Originally constructed in 1922, Garland Elementary was built to replace the original wood structure school built in 1879 and destroyed by fire in 1920. The public school closed in May of 2001 and sat vacant until August 2017, when the building was purchased by the Walton Family Foundation to use for a K-8 charter school for 600 students in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The restoration of this historic building required the abatement, packaging, and proper disposal of asbestos containing roof flashing, roof penetrations, asbestos floor tile and pipe joints. Snyder Environmental provided the environmental remediation work and completed the project in March 2018. The project required extensive coordination efforts between Kinco, WER Architects and the owner to make certain the historic restoration goals of the project were maintained.
The building is now listed in the National Register of Historical Places.

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.
