EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

A.C.T. Services, Inc. (ACT) has performed a limited hazardous building materials site investigation of
the Bell Building (Site) located at 25 Auburn Avenue in Atlanta, Georgia. This effort was performed in
accordance with the Georgia State University Foundation’s General Consulting Contract titled Bell
Building Demolition and Surface Parking Improvements (Block Renovation) (Project Number 101-06815), executed on January 28, 2015.
The main objective of this inspection was to confirm or rebut the presence of asbestos-containing
building materials (ACBM) and lead-based paints and coatings (LBP) within the subject property that
may be impacted the proposed building renovation or demolition. A secondary objective was to
identify other hazardous materials including, but not limited to, polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)
containing ballasts, transformers and hydraulic equipment, and mercury-containing light fixtures and
thermostats. This effort was performed in full compliance with federal, state and local regulations and
codes pertaining to this effort.
This investigation effort was limited to minimal destructive testing of accessible building materials and
components at the time of the inspection. Secondary analyses such as point counting and transmission
electron microscopy (TEM) were specifically excluded in this inspection effort. No matter how
thorough the inspection was performed, additional ACBMs, LBPs, PCBs and mercury-containing
components not listed in this report may be present in concealed or in accessible areas of the structure.
The site investigation fieldwork was completed on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 by Michael Robarts (Asbestos
Inspector/Management Planner Certification No. 14765 and Lead Inspector Certification No. 1552),
John O’Brien (Asbestos Inspector No. 14540), and Evelyn Smith (Asbestos Inspector Certification No.
14491). A copy of all inspector certifications has been included in the appendices.
Suspect ACBM samples collected during the inspection were submitted to Materials Analytical Services
(MAS) of Suwanee, Georgia (NVLAP Lab Code 101235-0) and to EMSL Analytical, Inc. (EMSL) of
Smyrna, Georgia (NVLAP Lab Code 101048-1) for analysis by polarized light microscopy (PLM) in
accordance with USEPA - 600/R-93/116 Method. Suspect LBP paint chip samples were also submitted
to MAS (AIHA LAP ID No. 100655) for lead analysis via Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (Flame
AAS). Soil sampling for lead-contaminated soil hazards was omitted due to the absence of bare soil at
the perimeter drip line of the building. One basement mastic sample was submitted to MAS for PCB
analysis by EPA Method 8080A.
Based on visual observations of vent pipes and age of the building it should be presumed that an
underground storage tank (UST) system may be present in the rear (south) driveway. Visual
observations also confirmed the presence of potential PCB equipment (light ballasts, transformers,
hydraulic equipment, etc.) and the presence of mercury-containing light fixtures and thermostats.
Other potentially hazardous issues observed and investigated include the visual assessment of mold
growth and the accumulation of large quantities of pigeon droppings.
All observations were performed in accordance with current general industry standards for this type of
work. Additional investigations may be required to determine specific quantities of the building
constituents addressed in this report.

1.1

FINDINGS

In general accordance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and Occupational Safety
and Health Administration (OSHA) asbestos and lead regulations, this investigation included
reconnaissance of the subject property, sample collection, material analysis and review federal and state
agency regulations in an effort to identify ACBM’s, LBP’s, PCBs and mercury-containing components that
may be disturbed during the proposed building renovation or structural demolition.

These processes discovered regulated building components containing asbestos, lead, potential PCBs, and
mercury that will require corrective action to reduce or eliminate exposure hazards during any renovation
or structural demolition activity. Additional hazards observed included excessive mold growth and large
accumulations of pigeon droppings.
1.1.1

Asbestos-Containing Building materials
A thorough asbestos inspection was performed in general compliance with the USEPA National
Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) regulations Title 40 Code of Federal
Regulations (CFR) Chapter 61 , Subpart M and OSHA regulations defined in 29 CFR 1926.1101.
This effort included minimal destructive testing and was generally limited to accessible building
materials at the time of the survey; secondary analyses such as point counting and TEM were
specifically excluded in this survey effort. Additional hazardous ACBM’s not listed in this report
could be present in other concealed or inaccessible areas of the building.
The analysis of one hundred and forty-three (143) suspect ACBM samples was performed by PLM
in accordance with EPA-600/R-93/116 Method. The following building materials were found to
contain regulated asbestos minerals during this process:

Lead Based paint Components
A limited collection of deteriorated non-intact paint chip samples was performed to determine lead
concentrations via Flame AAS. The main objective of the suspect LBP sample collection was to
identify potential lead hazards associated with the deteriorated lead-containing paints and
coatings applied to typical building surfaces as defined by OSHA lead standards. This limited LBP
survey was performed as a preliminary determination and was not intended to comply with any
federal or state regulation pertaining to target housing or child occupied facilities.
A total of nine (9) non-intact paint chips samples were collected and analyzed via Flame AAS for
the determination of lead concentrations. Soil sampling for lead-contaminated soil hazards was
omitted due to the absence of bare soil at the perimeter drip line of the building.
All nine (9) paint chip samples were found to contain the following lead percent by weight (% wt.).

Polychlorinated Biphenyls & Mercury-Containing Components.
Fluorescent light fixtures and bulbs were observed throughout the building. Suspect stored
PCB-containing light ballasts were observed in various locations of the building including, but
not limited to, custodian closets, bathrooms and storage areas.

In addition, five (5) unlabeled 55-gallon steel drums apparently containing waste oil were
observed on the first floor adjacent to the elevator area. Due to limited labeling, the drums may
contain hydraulic fluid with the potential to contain PCBs. No PCBs were detected in the
basement mastic sample submitted for analysis.
1.1.4

Underground Storage Tank (UST) System.
Visual observations of the rear driveway area noted several unidentifiable vent pipes extending
upward from the ground that would suggest the installation of a UST system for fuel oil used to
power the original boiler system. UST’s of this anticipated age have been documented to leak
and cause considerable contamination to the surrounding soil and groundwater. Regulations
require that leaking USTs be cleaned up to restore and protect groundwater sources. A site
characterization and additional testing maybe warranted to determine the presence of a UST
system and/or contaminated soils or groundwater.

Visible Mold Growth.
Currently, the Bell Building is abandoned and visual observations indicate that the building’s
interior spaces have been unconditioned for a number of years. Numerous areas of moisture
intrusion related to roof leaks and exterior envelope breaches were observed throughout the
building. The moisture intrusion and unconditioned interior spaces has resulted in numerous
large areas of mold growth observed on interior wall, floor and ceiling surfaces.

Mold-Contaminated Surfaces ...................................................................................... 10,000 Square Feet

Pigeon Droppings.
Large areas of accumulated pigeon dropping contamination were noted in various interior
areas of the breached building envelope. Histoplasmosis and Cryptococcus disease fungus
spores are emitted from nutrient-rich accumulations of pigeon droppings. Pigeon dropping
contamination can cause serious health risks that arise from exposure to these airborne disease
organisms. Prior to any building material disturbances it is recommended that all pigeon
dropping contamination issues be addressed.

Accumulated Pigeon Droppings................................................................................. 12,000 cubic feet

RECOMMENDATIONS

Within the limits of this effort, ACT has identified hazardous building materials and other constituents
that may require corrective activities prior to building renovation or demolition.
1.2.1

Asbestos-Containing Building Materials
Building materials containing greater than one percent (>1%) regulated asbestiform minerals
are considered asbestos-containing materials as defined by USEPA in 40 CFR Chapter 61,
Subpart M and OSHA Standard 1926.1101. Moreover, OSHA also regulates worker protection
standards for those building materials containing equal to or less than one percent (<1%)
asbestos.
ACT recommends the complete removal of the ACBMs identified within the building prior to
demolition of the structure. Only Georgia Environmental Protection Division (Georgia EPD)
certified asbestos abatement contractors are qualified to perform abatement activities under
properly controlled conditions.
The abatement of regulated ACBM’s can be accomplished using several methods including
encapsulation, enclosure, operations and maintenance program or complete removal or a
combination thereof. ACBM’s that remain in place and in good condition or are enclosed or
encapsulated should be included in an Operations and Maintenance Program that provides
policies for routine inspections and maintenance of the material.
When planning renovation or demolition activities, all contractors must be informed of the
known asbestos hazards and employ qualified personnel to perform work tasks that have the
potential to disturb asbestos-containing or contaminated materials.
NESHAP mandatory notification will be required prior to any asbestos abatement or demolition
activity. Proper waste disposal methods must be addressed in accordance with Georgia Solid
Waste Management rules.

1.2.1

Lead-Based Paint Components.
This effort has identified deteriorated non-intact LBP throughout the building. All plaster wall
paint coatings and painted building components including windows, doors, and railings are

presumed to contain lead. The delaminated non-intact paint coatings are dispersed throughout
the floor surfaces within the structure and present a lead hazard under OSHA standards for lead
29 CFR 1910 and 1926. OSHA does not recognize a lower threshold for lead concentrations and
requires all employers to communicate the potential lead health hazards to their employees as
part of a Hazard Communication Program 29 CFR 1919.1200.
Lead-based paint in poor condition and deteriorated paint should be properly remediated prior
to a proposed renovation or demolition activity. Abatement of lead-based paint can be
performed using various methods including, but not limited to, component removal, paint
stabilization, encapsulation and enclosure. Peeling and flaking paint chips and paint debris
observed in various locations throughout the facility should be stabilized immediately to
eliminate the potential of creating further lead-hazards to persons entering the building.
Recommended options for the abatement and disposal of lead-based paints that exceed the US
EPA hazardous waste standard are available. These include non-methylene chloride paint
strippers such as LEAD-OUT® Paint Stripper products which are designed to react at the
molecular level with lead and other heavy metals to render them non-hazardous allowing for
inexpensive disposal. Waste profile sampling is still required prior to disposal as nonhazardous waste. This technology would be considered an engineering control to assist in the
reduction of worker lead exposure.
OSHA has regulations governing construction worker exposure to lead. Employers of
construction workers engaged in the repair, renovation, removal, demolition, and salvage of
structures and materials (building components) are responsible for the development and
implementation of a worker protection program in accordance with 29 CFR Part 1926.62. This
lead hazard program is essential to minimize worker risk of lead exposure. Employers must be
in compliance with OSHA’s lead standard at all times.
The USEPA’s National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) [73 FR 66964, Nov 12, 2008] for
ambient lead concentrations is 0.15 micrograms per cubic meter of air (μg/m3). This standard
air concentration would be a concern during any renovation or demolition event due to the
poor condition of identified lead coatings. Disposal of lead-containing waste must be performed
in accordance with Georgia EPD Solid Waste Management regulations.
Georgia EPD regulates all lead-based paint abatement activities associated with target housing
and/or child occupied facilities; only Georgia EPD certified lead abatement contractors should
perform abatement activities associated with target housing or child occupied facilities under
properly controlled conditions.
1.2.2

Polychlorinated Biphenyls & Mercury-containing Components
ACT investigated the building for the presence of PCB containing equipment (light ballasts,
transformers, hydraulic equipment, etc.) and the presence of mercury-containing light fixtures
and thermostats. PCB waste is defined in 40 CFR, Part 761. Mercury-containing waste is
defined in 40 CFR, Part 273.
Both the OSHA and Georgia EPD regulate proper handling and disposal of PCB and mercurycontaining materials. It is recommended that obsolete PCB and mercury-containing equipment
should be carefully removed by qualified personnel and packaged for recycling in accordance
the Universal Waste Management regulations. PCB and mercury-containing equipment not
listed in this report may be present in concealed or in accessible areas of the building.

Underground Storage Tank Systems
ACT investigated the building for evidence of UST systems and found several unidentifiable vent
pipes extending from the ground level to the roof. These vent pipes can be observed in the rear
(south) driveway area. Photographs have also been included in the appendices.
Due to the age of the building and evidence of vent pipes, we recommend performing a site
characterization (also referred to as site assessment) to determine if a UST is or was present
and if the UST site has experienced a release of hazardous and petroleum substance that trigger
regulatory action. The site assessment should include a detailed subsurface investigation by
excavation, direct push techniques or other acceptable means necessary to obtain chemical
analysis of soil and groundwater.

1.2.4

Visible Mold Growth.
Visible mold growth was observed on interior wall, floor and ceiling surfaces during ACT’s site
reconnaissance. Although no sample collection or analysis was performed, disturbance of mold
contaminated building materials without taking appropriate precautions could result in
elevated airborne mold levels.
Elevated concentrations of target mold species, such as Chaetomium, Fusarium, Memnoniella,
Stachybotrys, and Trichoderma should not be found indoors. These species can influence
allergic hypersensitivity responses and symptoms of asthma in certain individuals. Prior to any
building material disturbances it is recommended that all moisture and mold issues be
addressed.

1.2.5

Pigeon Droppings.
Large populations of roosting pigeons have breached the buildings envelope and now present
the risk of disease to building workers or people nearby. The most serious health risks arise
from disease organisms that can grow in the nutrient-rich accumulations of bird droppings,
feathers and debris under a roost, particularly if roosts have been active for years. Pigeon
dropping contamination can cause serious health risks that arise from exposure to these
airborne disease organisms.
Histoplasmosis and Cryptococcus disease fungus spores are emitted from the nutrient-rich
accumulations of pigeon droppings. Therefore, it is recommended that prior to any building
material disturbances all pigeon dropping contamination issues be addressed.

PROPERTY CHARACTERISTICS

The building’s roof systems were built-up roof materials with parapet walls. The building ceiling decks
were terracotta blocks covered by plaster. Remnants of suspended and splined acoustical ceiling tiles
were observed in some of the building spaces. The original perimeter walls were terracotta block or brick
covered by plaster.
Remnants of wallboard, wood panel, concrete block, plaster and lathe and acoustical splined tile wall
systems were observed in some of the building spaces. Windows were combination of metal and wood
framed glass. The floors were concrete with some covered by remnants of various types of deteriorated
floor covering materials. Insulated steam pipes were identified in perimeter column pipe chases. All
organic building materials were observed to be contaminated with visible mold growth. Large areas of
accumulated pigeon droppings were also observed.
Two mechanical room areas were observed on the first and fourth floor levels. The first floor area
included a former boiler room and air handler room with a variety of insulated steam and chilled water
lines. The air handler unit was insulated and no boiler was present. The fourth floor air handler was not
insulated however; all servicing lines were insulated with a variety of insulating materials.
An attic area was located between the fourth floor level and roof which contained a variety of pipe
insulations, fiberglass attic insulations and a large area of accumulated pigeon droppings. All insulating
materials were observed to be in poor condition.
The basement mechanical equipment was decommissioned prior to this effort. Three newer installed
boilers and two condensate tanks were observed in the mechanical area with a variety of electrical switch
gear and breaker boxes. A water collection sump system was also shutdown. The boiler flew had been
modified for the newer style boiler systems. Non-asbestos resinous black vapor barrier mastic was
observed throughout the basement area. This material was also sampled for PCBs with a negative result.
Drawings identifying each floor level and general sample locations are included in the Appendix.

LEAD-BASED PAINT INVESTIGATION SUMMARY

DESCRIPTION OF LBP COMPONENTS

Lead-containing building components affected by a demolition must be handled appropriately to assure
that no employee is exposed to lead in excess of the permissible exposure limit. Disposal of leadcontaining waste must be performed in accordance with Georgia EPD Solid Waste Management
regulations. Laboratory results for the paint chip samples analyzed were found to contain the

following percent by weight (% wt.) lead content.

HAZARD SCREEN FINDINGS

ASBESTOS HAZARD SCREEN FINDINGS

The NESHAP regulations (40 CFR 61 (M)) require that regulated asbestos-containing materials (RACM)
be properly abated prior to any demolition or renovation activity, which may disturb them. The EPA
NESHAP regulations define RACM as:
(a) Friable ACM (ACM that can be crumbled, pulverized or reduced to powder by hand pressure);
(b) Category I non-friable ACM that has become friable;
(c) Category I non-friable ACM that will be or has been subject to sanding, grinding, cutting or
abrading, or;
(d) Category II non-friable ACM that has a high probability of becoming, or has become, crumbled,
pulverized, or reduced to powder by the forces expected to act on the material in the course of
demolition or renovation operations.
An assessment of potential exposure to harmful asbestos fibers from ACBMs should evaluate the
material's potential to release fibers into the air. Fiber release may occur spontaneously due to the
normal aging and subsequent deterioration of the materials. Fiber release may also occur suddenly due
to disturbance of the materials by maintenance, renovations, demolition, accidents, excessive vibrations,
or water damage. As a part of the survey, a visual assessment was performed in order to ascertain the
potential for asbestos fiber release from suspected materials.
The assessment focused upon specific criteria which include asbestos content (percentage and type);
friability; evidence of deterioration, physical damage or water damage; proximity to an air stream; and
accessibility. The effects of potential renovation activities were considered separately for each affected
material found to contain asbestos. The surveyor based upon facility characteristics, prior experience, an
understanding of abatement alternatives, and proposed demolition plans evaluates these criteria
qualitatively. This method of evaluation is outlined in the EPA's "Guidance for Controlling Asbestos
Containing Materials in Buildings" (EPA 560/5-85-024).
The results of the evaluations are reported in relative terms describing the potential for asbestos fiber
release. Materials that are in good physical condition and exhibit little chance for disturbance are
considered to have a "low" potential for fiber release. Materials that are in poor condition with some
deterioration or damage, or exhibit some risk for disturbance present a "medium" potential for fiber
emission. Materials that are in generally poor condition and exhibit the chance for further deterioration,
damage, or disturbance are considered to present a "high" potential to generate airborne fibers. A
material assessed as an "imminent hazard" is typically damaged, openly exposed, likely to be disturbed
and displays a very high possibility of releasing fibers into the air. The following assessments have been
determined based on the understanding that the subject building is proposed for demolition with the
complete removal of all asbestos-containing materials by a qualified asbestos abatement contractor
under properly controlled conditions.

LEAD HAZARD SCREEN FINDINGS

The EPA standards (40 CFR Part 745) provide assessment methodology for the determination of a leadhazard screen. This method requires an inspector to evaluate paint conditions for deterioration,
accumulation of visible suspect debris, and painted surfaces that are impact points and/or subject to
friction. The conditions noted by ACT’s inspector can be compared to the following table and applied to
the appropriate categories.

POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYLS & MERCURY COMPONENTS HAZARD SCREEN FINDINGS

ACT investigated the building for the presence of PCB containing equipment (light ballasts,
transformers, hydraulic equipment, etc.) and the presence of mercury-containing light fixtures and
thermostats. PCBs are a known carcinogenic that can also cause chloracne, liver damage, nausea,
dizziness, eye irritation, and bronchitis. Mercury can affect the body if it is inhaled or if it comes in contact
with the eyes or skin or if it is introduced into the digestive system the ingestion.
Both the OSHA and Georgia EPD regulate proper handling and disposal of PCB and mercury-containing
materials. It is recommended that obsolete PCB and mercury-containing equipment should be carefully
removed by qualified personnel and packaged for recycling in accordance the Universal Waste
Management regulations. PCB and mercury-containing equipment not listed in this report may be
present in concealed or in accessible areas of the building.

6.4

UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANK SYSTEMS

ACT investigated the building for evidence of UST systems and found several unidentifiable vent pipes
extending from the ground level to the roof. These vent pipes can be observed in the rear (south)
driveway area. Photographs have also been included in the appendices.
Due to the age of the building and evidence of vent pipes, we recommend performing a site
characterization (also referred to as site assessment) to determine if a UST is or was present and if the
UST site has experienced a release of hazardous and petroleum substance that trigger regulatory
action. The site assessment should include a detailed subsurface investigation by excavation, direct
push techniques or other acceptable means necessary to obtain chemical analysis of soil and
groundwater.

6.5

VISIBLE MOLD GROWTH HAZARD SCREEN FINDINGS

Visible mold growth was observed on interior wall, floor and ceiling surfaces during ACT’s site
reconnaissance. Elevated concentrations of target mold species, such as Chaetomium, Fusarium,
Memnoniella, Stachybotrys, and Trichoderma should not be found indoors. These species can
influence allergic hypersensitivity responses and symptoms of asthma in certain individuals.
Although no sample collection or analysis was performed, disturbance of mold contaminated building
materials without taking appropriate precautions could result in elevated airborne mold levels. Prior
to any building material disturbances it is recommended that all moisture and mold issues be
addressed.

PIGEON DROPPINGS HAZARD SCREEN FINDINGS

Large populations of roosting pigeons have breached the buildings envelope and now present the risk
of disease to building workers or people nearby. The most serious health risks arise from
Histoplasmosis and Cryptococcus disease organisms that can grow in the nutrient-rich accumulations
of bird droppings, feathers and debris under a roost, particularly if roosts have been active for years.
External parasites also may become a problem when infested birds or bats leave roosts or nests. The
parasites then can invade buildings and bite people including mosquitos who are associated with
transmitting the West Nile encephalitis virus to humans from birds including Pigeons. Prior to any
building material disturbances it is recommended that all pigeon dropping contamination issues be
addressed.

SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS

A.C.T. Services has performed a hazardous building materials site investigation including the evaluation of
ACBMs, LBP, PCBs, and mercury-containing components in general conformance with the scope and
limitations discussed in this report on the Bell Building located at 25 Auburn Avenue in Fulton County,
Georgia.
Exceptions to or deletions from the EPA standard were discussed earlier in this report. This investigation
has identified several types of deteriorated ACBMs, building components with LBP, and suspect PCB and
mercury-containing light fixtures and electrical equipment that may require additional action to reduce
or eliminate potential hazards associated with the demolition of the building.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Building materials containing greater than one percent (>1%) regulated asbestiform minerals are
considered asbestos-containing materials as defined by USEPA in 40 CFR Chapter 61, Subpart M and
OSHA Standard 1926.1101. Moreover, OSHA also regulates worker protection standards for those
building materials containing equal to or less than one percent (<1%) asbestos.
Due to the deteriorated condition of the building interior ACT recommends the complete removal of the
ACBMs identified within the building prior to demolition of the structure. The ACBMs identified within
the building possess either a high potential for generating fiber release during demolition activities, or
their present deteriorated condition already possess a high hazard with respect to the potential to
release asbestos fibers. NESHAP regulations (40 CFR 61 (M)) require that all RACM be properly abated
prior to any demolition or renovation activity, which may disturb them. Only Georgia EPD certified
asbestos abatement contractors are qualified to perform abatement activities under properly
controlled conditions.
The abatement of regulated ACBM’s can be accomplished using several methods including
encapsulation, enclosure, operations and maintenance program or complete removal or a combination
thereof. ACBM’s that remain in place and in good condition or are enclosed or encapsulated should be
included in an Operations and Maintenance Program that provides policies for routine inspections and
maintenance of the material.
When planning renovation or demolition activities, all contractors must be informed of the known
asbestos hazards and employ qualified personnel to perform work tasks that have the potential to
disturb asbestos-containing or contaminated materials.
NESHAP mandatory notification will be required prior to any asbestos abatement or demolition
activity. Proper waste disposal methods must be addressed in accordance with Georgia Solid Waste
Management rules.
The waste materials generated during asbestos abatement of the ACBMs listed in this report are
considered asbestos-containing waste materials (ACWM) by Georgia EPD. All ACWM generated by the
renovation or demolition of this structure must be disposed of in accordance with the Georgia Asbestos
Waste Regulations which requires all ACWM (including materials contaminated by the disturbance of
RACM, CAT I and CAT II asbestos) to be deposited into a permitted landfill with an asbestos waste
shipment record. Asbestos-containing roofing materials and miscellaneous floor mastics are
considered Category I materials.
Within the limits of OSHA standards for General Industry (29CFR1910.1025) and Construction
Industry (29CFR1926.62) this effort has identified deteriorated non-intact LBP throughout the
building. All plaster wall paint coatings and painted building components including windows, doors,
and railings are presumed to contain lead. The delaminated non-intact paint coatings are dispersed
throughout the floor surfaces within the structure and present a lead hazard under OSHA standards for
lead 29 CFR 1910 and 1926. OSHA does not recognize a lower threshold for lead concentrations and
requires all employers to communicate the potential lead health hazards to their employees as part of a
Hazard Communication Program 29 CFR 1919.1200.
Due to the deteriorated condition of the lead-based paint, ACT recommends that the paint should be
properly remediated prior to a proposed renovation or demolition activity. Abatement of lead-based
paint can be performed using various methods including, but not limited to, component removal, paint
stabilization, encapsulation and enclosure. Peeling and flaking paint chips and paint debris observed in
various locations throughout the facility should be stabilized immediately to eliminate the potential of
creating further lead-hazards to persons entering the building.

June 24, 2015

Recommended options for the abatement and disposal of lead-based paints that exceed the USEPA
hazardous waste standard are available. These include non-methylene chloride paint strippers such as
LEAD-OUT® Paint Stripper products which are designed to react at the molecular level with lead and
other heavy metals to render them non-hazardous allowing for inexpensive disposal. Waste profile
sampling is still required prior to disposal as non-hazardous waste. This technology would be
considered an engineering control to assist in the reduction of worker lead exposure.
OSHA has regulations governing construction worker exposure to lead. Employers of construction
workers engaged in the repair, renovation, removal, demolition, and salvage of structures and materials
(building components) are responsible for the development and implementation of a worker
protection program in accordance with 29 CFR Part 1926.62. This lead hazard program is essential to
minimize worker risk of lead exposure. Employers must be in compliance with OSHA’s lead standard at
all times.
The USEPA’s National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) [73 FR 66964, Nov 12, 2008] for ambient
lead concentrations is 0.15 micrograms per cubic meter of air (μg/m3). This standard air
concentration would be a concern during any renovation or demolition event due to the poor condition
of identified lead coatings. Disposal of lead-containing waste must be performed in accordance with
Georgia EPD Solid Waste Management regulations.
Georgia EPD regulates all lead-based paint abatement activities associated with target housing and/or
child occupied facilities; only Georgia EPD certified lead abatement contractors should perform
abatement activities associated with target housing or child occupied facilities under properly
controlled conditions.
Suspect mercury-containing florescent lamps were observed throughout the building. Suspect stored
PCB-containing light ballasts were observed in various locations of the building including, but not
limited to, custodian closets, bathrooms and storage areas. In addition, five (5) unlabeled 55-gallon
steel drums apparently containing waste oil were observed on the first floor adjacent to the elevator
area. Due to limited labeling, the drums may contain hydraulic fluid with the potential to contain PCBs.
Additional investigations may be required to confirm the presence of the suspect mercury and PCBs within
these components and drums. PCB waste is defined in 40 CFR, Part 761. Mercury-containing waste is
defined in 40 CFR, Part 273. Used mercury-containing florescent lamps and PCB equipment should be
carefully removed by qualified personnel and packaged for recycling in accordance the EPA 40 CFR 273
Standards for Universal Waste Management regulations.
Both OSHA and Georgia EPD regulate proper worker training, handling and disposal of PCB and mercurycontaining materials. ACT recommends that obsolete PCB and mercury-containing equipment should be
carefully removed by qualified personnel and packaged for recycling in accordance the Universal Waste
Management regulations. PCB and mercury-containing equipment not listed in this report may be
present in concealed or in accessible areas of the building.
ACT investigation discovered evidence of UST systems including several unidentifiable vent pipes
extending from the ground level to the roof. These vent pipes can be observed in the rear (south)
driveway area. Photographs have also been included in the appendices.
Due to the age of the building and evidence of vent pipes, we recommend performing a site
characterization (also referred to as site assessment) to determine if a UST is or was present and if the
UST site has experienced a release of hazardous and petroleum substance that trigger regulatory
action. The site assessment should include a detailed subsurface investigation by excavation, direct
push techniques or other acceptable means necessary to obtain chemical analysis of soil and

June 24, 2015

Currently, the Bell Building is abandoned and visual observations indicate that the building’s interior
spaces have been unconditioned for a number of years. Numerous areas of moisture intrusion related
to roof leaks and exterior envelope breaches were observed throughout the building. The moisture
intrusion and unconditioned interior spaces has resulted in numerous large areas of mold growth
observed on interior wall, floor and ceiling surfaces. Elevated concentrations of target mold species,
such as Chaetomium, Fusarium, Memnoniella, Stachybotrys, and Trichoderma should not be found
indoors. These species can influence allergic hypersensitivity responses and symptoms of asthma in
certain individuals.
Likewise, large areas of accumulated pigeon dropping contamination were noted in various interior
areas of the breached building envelope. Histoplasmosis and Cryptococcus disease fungus spores are
emitted from nutrient-rich accumulations of pigeon droppings. Pigeon dropping contamination can
cause serious health risks that arise from exposure to these airborne disease organisms.
ACT recommends that all visible mold growth and pigeon droppings be removed by a qualified mold
remediation contractor in accordance with a detailed Remedial Action Plan (RAP) to prevent the spread of
mold and/or pigeon waste contamination. The RAP should address the removal of molded, moist and
stained building materials using precautions similar to those required for asbestos and lead removal to
reduce the potential for further contamination.

microscopy (PLM) to determine the percentage of asbestos.
The samples were analyzed in accordance with EPA document 600/R-93/116, 'Method for the
Determination of Asbestos in Bulk Building Materials' and/or EPA document 600/M4-82-020,
'Interim Method for the Determination of Asbestos in Bulk Insulation Samples'. These analysis
results relate only to the specific items analyzed. Any partial reproduction of the Bulk
Analysis Report may not be made without the consent of MAS, LLC. This report may not be
used to imply product endorsement or certification by MAS, LLC., the National Voluntary

RE: PLM Sample Analysis
Bell Building
Bell Building
Dear Mr. Robarts:
Enclosed is a summary and the analysis of the 25 samples which were delivered to MAS, LLC.
on April 27, 2015. It was requested that we analyze these samples using polarized light
microscopy (PLM) to determine the percentage of asbestos.
The samples were analyzed in accordance with EPA document 600/R-93/116, 'Method for the
Determination of Asbestos in Bulk Building Materials' and/or EPA document 600/M4-82-020,
'Interim Method for the Determination of Asbestos in Bulk Insulation Samples'. These analysis
results relate only to the specific items analyzed. Any partial reproduction of the Bulk
Analysis Report may not be made without the consent of MAS, LLC. This report may not be
used to imply product endorsement or certification by MAS, LLC., the National Voluntary
Laboratory Accreditation Program, EPA, or the U.S. Government.
Materials Analytical Services appreciates this opportunity to have been of service to you. We
look forward to working with you on future projects.
Sincerely,

Chris DuBour
