Hazardous Materials AbatementEnvironmental hazards are encountered on almost every renovation or demolition project due to the age of the buildings.  O’ROURKE has a long and proven track record of handling hazardous materials from commercial to industrial sites and will act as your partner in risk management to ensure your project is seamless from start to finish.  Our team of professionals are trained and licensed in asbestos, lead and mold abatement and will operate in full compliance with OSHA and federal and state EPA rules and regulations.

Our team will assess and properly plan for the removal and disposal of various types of hazardous building components typically encountered during a renovation or demolition. Hazardous containing materials can pose significant risk to human health and the environment if not properly handled.

In addition to asbestos containing materials, other hazardous materials generally encountered include Universal Waste (i.e. fluorescent bulbs, neon, high intensity discharge, mercury vapor, high pressure sodium and metal halide lamps), batteries and mercury devices (i.e. thermostats, electrical switches, gauges and light sensors). Other hazardous materials include light ballasts which may contain polychlorated biphenyls (PCB’s), lead pipes, roof vent flashings, lead containing fixtures (i.e. piping and lead painted surfaces) as well as other hazardous materials such as paint, oil, pesticides, cleaners and other discarded chemicals.

O’ROURKE will properly identify and remove hazardous materials needed to obtain clearance of areas prior to renovation or demolition. Our licensed crews are trained in hazardous materials safety, waste management, and environmental compliance standards.

O’ROURKE offers a range of services related to the safe management and disposal of hazardous waste materials. Our certified professionals know RCRA regulations and guidelines, including sampling, analysis, storage, collection, and disposal.


Environmental Remediation

Environmental remediation is a process used to eliminate hazardous materials from the environment and restore contaminated land to its original state. It is primarily used where hazardous materials have been dumped, leaked, or otherwise released into the environment.

Our environmental remediation aims to reduce or eliminate any risks associated with these materials, such as air and water pollution, health problems, and ecological damage.
