||THE OLD BOSTON OPERA HOUSE||BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS|
The Old Boston Opera House with seating for 2,600 was built as a vaudeville house by New York architect Thomas Lamb in the 1920’s for $6 million. The facility was last open for performances in 1989. The building has been abandoned and has been significantly vandalized by vagrants and has sustained major water damage from roof leakage.
ECMS’s scope of services included all hazard assessments, remedial design, and construction management activities related to asbestos-containing materials and lead-based paint.
The purpose of the Site Assessment was to determine the history of the property, including current and former ownership and use and evaluate the Site for evidence of oil and/or hazardous materials that are, have been, or potentially could be released onto the Site or in the vicinity of the Site. A Site reconnaissance visit for the property was also conducted by ECMS qualified personnel to document current Site conditions with respect to the presence of any oil and/or hazardous materials (OHM).
ECMS was also contracted to identify,
sample, and assess the condition of suspect asbestos-containing materials
(ACM) and lead-based paint (LBP) throughout the building. ECMS
provided hazardous material abatement design plans and specifications
necessary to facilitate the renovation and restoration of the building.
ECMS is also providing project administrative and construction
management support including compliance supervision, inspections of contractor
activities, and air quality monitoring during abatement operations.
