Building age, use, occupancy, or condition may degrade air quality, and occupant comfort as well as increase risk. With combined environmental and engineering capacities, TGE’s team of IH professionals reduce uncertainty and drive solutions.
While asbestos remains in our schools, commercial buildings, and in industry, TGE’s IH professionals are sought after to locate asbestos, evaluate its condition, and provide answers to support asbestos-related decision making. TGE’s extensive experience in asbestos consulting has involved several thousand assessments and related cost estimates, abatement designs, management plans, and eventual abatement consulting. TGE’s asbestos practice may be driven by building renovation or demolition when efficiency and compliance are vital to construction schedules and cost control.
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Consulting
For buildings or industrial/commercial work places, TGE brings a legacy of experience and project success in IAQ Consulting. Fortune 500 companies routinely engage TGE across the U.S. to apply standardized methods with proprietary techniques and tools. We gather data, develop strategies, reduce occupant anxiety, and assist in proactive IAQ-related loss control.
Whether accidental or by defect, microbial impact can be caused by deferred maintenance or natural disaster conditions of flooding or storm. This may result in financial loss and lead to litigation. Our IH professionals bring over 100 years of combined microbial project experience. We test, quantify, plan, and execute mitigation strategies to control and/or remove microbial damage. Gulf Coast storms have caused massive losses and TGE has responded to Fortune 500 companies, healthcare, general industry, multi-family, and high-profile commercial property.
Hazardous Materials Services
Industry and commercial operations house hazardous materials; they spill, degrade, require inventory, and, ultimately, disposal. Hazardous materials work is assigned in advance of building renovation, demolition/site reuse, or to support tenant needs. Materials involved include solid wastes, asbestos, lead-based paint, radioactive materials, heavy metals-containing components, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), and mold/microbial-damaged building materials.
