Abatement / Demo Value: $500,000
PacRim provided a pre-demolition Regulated Building Materials Survey in the mostly occupied section of 108th encompassing multiple tenants and building with various ongoing retail and services operations working closely with the Property Manager (Wallace Properties). PacRim provided an abatement specification and budget which lead to competitive bids from responsive abatement contractors and our final bid analysis and award to Rhine Demolition. The abatement consisted of various Class 1 asbestos materials such as popcorn ceilings, wall textures and cement asbestos board. Class 2 asbestos materials abated were a significant amount of flooring and mastic along with window and roofing materials. The fact that the buildings were occupied right up abatement prior to demolition presented some challenges along with the fact that many of the building had undergone multiple remodels and changes on the building interiors. PacRim was able to recognize these condition and test appropriately for hidden materials. Evaluation of suspect materials was made and incorporated as alternate bid items. Ultimately these materials were investigated, tracked and either abated or eliminated from the scope. Again, as with most projects, PacRim provide the developer with a cost ROM that allowed and flexible but realistic working bid / contract pricing. This detail to tracking and documenting costs in real time during abatement eliminated delays and uncertainties for the developer. This project, as complex as it was, did get completed on schedule and within the PacRim budget.
Incorporating some non-friable materials during demolition utilizing the WISHA 23.35 Directive help the schedule in execution of abatement tasks as part of demolition and realizing a cost savings along with elimination of repetitive and injury prone manual abatement methods. Pac Rim’s day to day involvement in both the abatement and demolition task, working with the contractors and keeping the owner informed on a weekly basis through meetings and reports brought this project back to dirt so the contractor could begin their know-how to build the structure.
