Asbestos Removal Project Design
Stratified provides in-house resources to develop detailed specifications for projects involving the removal of any or all asbestos containing material. This includes project management, preparation of bid specifications and assistance in qualifying and selecting abatement contractors.

Naturally Occurring Asbestos (NOA)
Asbestos-containing dust can be generated when asbestos-containing rocks are crushed or broken through natural weathering processes or through activities such as construction, grading, quarrying or surface mining. This dust may pose serious health risks to people who inhale this material.

There are important differences between asbestos containing material or naturally occurring asbestos. Primarily, the California Air Resources Board set a limit of 0.25% asbestos versus >1% asbestos for asbestos containing material. Heightened data documentation is necessary in order to ensure correct characterization of regulated naturally occurring asbestos. Most analytical laboratories are used to identify high grade mined asbestos, not naturally occurring asbestos.

Stratified has technical staff experienced in every analytical aspect of asbestos including the ability to determine whether the naturally occurring asbestos characterization fits with the EPA’s definition of regulated asbestos.
