Regulatory, Legal and Financial Ramifications

Chemicals pervade school environments and are commonplace from elementary and high schools to colleges, universities and research facilities.

Carnow Conibear was retained by Chicago 2016 to conduct hazardous material, asbestos, and lead surveys and to prepare remediation cost estimates, development plans and specifications for the redevelopment of the former 36-acre Michael Reese Hospital Campus.

Carnow Conibear performed a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) in accordance with the protocols of American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standard E1527. The Phase I ESA was performed to determine whether any recognized environmental conditions (RECs) exist at the site and whether RECs present a potential threat to human health, environment, or redevelopment of the site.

CCA provided fit testing for seven (7) Advocate Hospitals located in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. 

Carnow Conibear provided comprehensive construction and environmental oversight services for one of the largest renovation and mold abatement projects in a high school in the United States.
