Are you aware that any time a building is renovated or demolished, there is a risk of asbestos or lead exposure? Federal and state laws and regulations require building owners to properly assess and manage the potential presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and lead-containing paints (LCP) prior to renovation or demolition. With more than 400 inspectors working in all 50 states, G&S helps protect the safety of building tenants and the environment while reducing risk for building owners by providing collaborative, professional asbestos and lead consulting services.


Failure to account for the proper removal of ACM or LCP can result in significant fines and project delays. Without proper planning, asbestos removal can significantly increase project schedules and budgets. G&S helps organizations determine the potential impacts of ACM or LCP prior to renovations, demolitions, or property purchases.

G&S also helps building owners better understand applicable laws and regulations including:

  • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA) regulations including but not limited to:
  • Asbestos National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for the renovation or demolition of buildings and disposal of asbestos waste
  • Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) for schools
  • Asbestos Model Accreditation Plan (MAP) for training and accreditation
  • Asbestos School Hazard Abatement Reauthorization Act (ASHARA) – commercial/public buildings
  • Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP)
  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations including but not limited to:
  • Asbestos in Construction and General Industry
  • Lead in Construction and General Industry
  • State and local regulations for asbestos and lead

Asbestos Surveys

G&S’s inspectors perform surveys and collect samples of suspect ACM in schools, hospitals, commercial, industrial, and municipal buildings. G&S’s services are utilized by a wide variety of national and local clients, and government entities who own diverse properties and structures such as railroads, airports, cell towers, roads, bridges and dams, power plants, pipelines, refineries, malls, apartment complexes, offices buildings, restaurants, and national chains. Our asbestos surveys follow the guidelines established under the USEPA Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) program, and as required by USEPA regulation 40 CFR Part 61, National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP).
