Academy of the Holy Angels
Indoor Air Quality/Microbial Testing
The Academy of the Holy Angels is preparing to renovate its former convent building to house administrative and academic offices as well as to provide additional educational space for the school’s use. As a result, in preparation for these renovation activities, RJB Environmental (RJB) was contracted to perform assessment activities of the former convent building. These assessment activities incorporated the sampling and assessment of suspect Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs), the assessment of Universal Waste materials to include the sampling of the window and door caulk as well as the window glazing for Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) and lastly, and assessment of the facility relative to microbial impact issues as a result of the reported long term water incursion issues within the second floor as well as around the facilities windows. Upon receipt of the analytical data, RJB prepared a comprehensive assessment report outlining the findings of the assessment activities as well as recommendations with the associated construction cost estimates for the remediation of those materials that would be impacted by the renovations.
