Putnam Edge High School
UES was contracted by Synergy Construction to perform limited asbestos sampling of materials scheduled to be disturbed by on-going renovations to the Putnam Edge High School building in Palatka, Florida. UES performed asbestos consulting services on a “Rush” basis to meet the contractor's scheduling needs and to assist in the opening of the school for the fall session. UES mobilized an Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) certified asbestos inspector to the site, obtained the appropriate suspect samples for laboratory analysis, and delivered the samples to the laboratory the same day.
The laboratory completed the analysis of suspect samples by Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) on a rush three-hour turnaround time frame. The laboratory results were provided to the general contractor on-site the same day and construction decisions were able to be made in order to complete the project and open the school as scheduled. UES’ quick response to our client's needs made this project a success.
