Environmental Remediation for Historical Buildings
Project: Old North Church (1723)
Type: Lead paint abatement, restoration
Location: Boston, MA
-EnviroVantage performed lead paint abatement on virtually all the exterior wood surfaces, including the soffits, window frames, and dentil moldings.
-Every piece of wood below the steeple was painstakingly cleaned, restored when necessary, and repainted.
-Each window and molding had to be carefully contained to ensure not only that church activities could continue, but also that the neighborhood was protected from toxic dust.
Project: First Parish Church
Type: Restoration – rebuild and repaint
Location: Brunswick, ME
-EnviroVantage will always find a way – with much research and testing, we were able to find a non-caustic solvent to strip the multiple coatings of paint from multiple surfaces (flat, rounded, and arched) totaling over 22,000 square feet.
-Safety comes first – employees were required to wear protective suits and masks every day, despite the summer heat.
-EnviroVantage’s seven-person crew completed the project on time in just over four months.
-Its contribution to the project earned EnviroVantage a 2005 Contractors Merit Award from the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC).
