We have contributed to the demolition, renovation and/or rebuilding of power plants, hospitals, office buildings, mechanical and electrical systems, fire protection systems, laboratory buildings, airport hangars, berthing piers, and dozens of other facilities throughout the years.
For each project, project-specific Accident Prevention Plan (APP) and Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) submittals were prepared in accordance with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Safety and Health Requirements Manual (EM 385-1-1). Wilcox & Barton, Inc. performed comprehensive surveys of buildings, piers, and/or berths were performed to identify asbestos-containing materials (ACMs), lead-based paint (LBP), and materials containing polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs).
