AEI’s certified staff members are always up-to-date on the ever-changing lead regulations (including EPA’s Repair, Renovations, & Painting Rule) and how these regulations can potentially affect our clients.
Lead-Based Paint Hazards
AEI’s certified and licensed staff can perform comprehensive lead based paint Inspections and Risk Assessments following HUD guidelines. AEI’s staff members are experienced with X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) sampling technology, as well as standard paint chip sampling and wipe sampling.
Lead in Drinking Water
AEI performs surveys to identify potential lead contaminant sources in water supplies for commercial and residential buildings. AEI assists in finding affordable and effective methods to reduce lead concentrations in drinking water to acceptable levels.
Lead Operations & Management Plans
Once the LBP hazard is quantified, AEI has the ability to aid owners and operators in developing cost-effective ways of managing the risks associated with LBP. AEI can create O&M plans to assist facility managers with a variety of interim controls to manage lead-based paint.
Lead-Based Paint Abatement Monitoring
In cases where the removal of LBP is necessary, AEI provides project management, bid specifications, construction inspections, waste manifest review and a project closure report following abatement.
The EPA Repair, Renovations & Painting Rule now specifies that only contractors who are Lead-Safe Certified can perform renovations for projects involving the removal of more than 6 square feet of lead based paint in buildings constructed before 1978. AEI assists our clients during LBP removal projects to ensure that no lead hazards are present following abatement activities.
