Former Pueblo Ice House
January 2009 to August 2010
The former Ice House property was identified by the CDPHE to be a major asbestos spill under Colorado Regulation #8 Part B. Staff members performed oversight of the abatement and designed plans for on-site solid waste disposal of the spill. The scope of work included drafting an application for certificate of designation (CD), creating engineering designs, training, record-keeping, and constructing a closure plan related to the asbestos disposal site. Staff members also designed a solid waste disposal plan for the ACM and soil piles located on site. The plan addressed a variety of regulations, including Colorado Regulation #8, EPA, and National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) requirements, as they apply to asbestos disposal and encapsulation activities. Staff members managed the abatement contractor, ensured the usage of wet methods, monitored for visible emissions, and performed QA/QC compliance with NIOSH method 7202 for TEM air sampling. Staff continuously interfaced with both of the supervising CDPHE Divisions throughout all phases of the project. They designed an alternative work plan to deal with the spill issues. Through this plan, the asbestos containing building materials and soil piles were encapsulated under concrete foundation walls and slab-on grade floors. The site was then filled with ACS, capped with clean clay soil and covered with asphalt. This plan saved the Count y more than one million dollars in construction fees.

Former Stapleton International Airport – URS/City and County of Denver (DIA), Colorado
The former Stapleton Airport is currently one of the largest asbestos-in-soil projects in the United States. Staff members have managed and worked on the environmental components of the redevelopment of the former airport since 1999. They have performed building surveys and inspections, and have written the project design for asbestos abatement and demolition of over 50 buildings at the former Stapleton International Airport.
King Soopers/City Markets, Colorado, Utah and Wyoming
Staff members have managed and performed asbestos inspections for King Soopers and City Market stores located throughout the Rocky Mountain Region. They have provided quality asbestos abatement oversight during store re-model phases, as well as full inspections and reports for each grocery store project.
Demolition Project Management – Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Staff supported the City of Cedar Rapids to help manage the devastation that followed the Great Flood of 2008 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The actual Project Manager for Flood Related Demolition Management Services for this work is now AVENV’s owner and President. He led a team of field experts to oversee the assessment, remediation and demolition of flood- damaged structures throughout the City.
The State Capital and Governor’ s Mansion – Denver, Colorado
Through these projects, staff members were tasked with performing numerous asbestos inspections, prior to the installation of energy retrofits. These inspections ensured that contractors were in compliance with all State and Federal Regulations and helped to ascertain the safety of the Governor and his famil This task was further complicated by the historical nature of the building, which prevented excessive, destructive sampling and required staff to abide by all historic preservation regulations.
City of Kansas City – Kansas City, Missouri
Staff members undertook multiple projects throughoutKansas City during its redevelopment phases.
