EPPING—EnviroVantage Inc., a leader in the safe handling of hazardous materials at building and historic reconstruction sites, announces it has received an “Excellence in Construction Merit Award” from the Massachusetts chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), the state’s largest construction trade association.
EnviroVantage was honored for its renovation work on Cary Cottage, a 125-year old, three-story building that houses a drug rehabilitation center at Dimock Community Health Center in Roxbury, Mass.
The firm’s specialty work included abatement of lead paint from the building’s windows, removal of asbestos tiles and replacement of most of the building’s exterior clapboards, a task made more exacting with the Boston Historical Commission’s mandate to preserve as much of the original materials as possible.
EnviroVantage, Inc. is a regional leader in the safe handling and removal of hazardous materials (including lead paint, asbestos, and mold) found at building sites on projects requiring renovation, demolition, or historic reconstruction. EnviroVantage created the standard procedures for lead paint removal and staffs experts on every major contaminant found in buildings.
