Environmental Evaluation of Historic Buildings

case_env_iaqinvestThe Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida received a donation that included three historic buildings adjacent to the museum.

These buildings had suffered structural damage from recent hurricanes and were in generally poor repair. Due to the condition and age of the buildings, Museum officials had concerns about both environmental issues such as lead-based paint and asbestos-containing materials.

We performed an environmental survey of the building including a survey for lead-based paint and asbestos-containing materials.  We designed a lead-based paint stabilization program for the buildings, and provided advice on maintenance of good indoor air quality in the structures.
