BCE completed a Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) of the Historic Building. The building was originally constructed over 70 years ago, and has been abandoned for several decades. This FCA assisted the Client in determining the overall condition of the property and costs associated with renovation/ restoration or demolition of this facility. The purpose of this report was to provide one consolidated document that incorporated all pertinent studies and previous reports performed for this property.
BCE conducted an environmental assessment of the property to identify and quantify hazardous materials present at the site, samples were collected at the site and sent to the laboratory for analysis. It was determined that the building contained extensive amounts of hazardous materials such as: asbestos, lead-based paint (LBP), mold and mildew, fluorescent lamps, mercury switches, PCB ballasts, and petroleum contaminated soils.
BCE also provided assessment of major components which included: site, structural, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, building interior and exterior, fire protection, and ADA assessments. A detailed cost estimate for each option was provided along with the recommendations.
