Performing work in a building of historic significance often places new and challenging requirements upon environmental contracting professionals. Safety, along with protection and preservation of the building’s historic integrity, are the essential, overriding priorities. NCM’s years of experience with historic structures, combined with our innovative techniques and careful coordination, accommodate the special needs of these architectural treasures.In most asbestos abatement/re-insulation projects, for example, the contractor must demolish walls or ceilings to access the asbestos-containing material behind or above them. But, when it comes to many historic buildings, the walls and ceilings cannot be damaged, and the contractor must take extraordinary measures to gain access for renovation. Equal care must be given to the removal of lead-based paint from delicate woodwork or other fragile architectural details. Each job presents unique challenges.
Nationwide Challenges, NCM SolutionsHistoric preservation projects involve special concerns. When appropriate, we design innovative, sometimes nontraditional solutions to solve a site-specific environmental problem. Throughout our more than 30 years in business, NCM has developed or adapted equipment and techniques to handle the demands of these types of projects again and again.
Stanford University, the Smithsonian Institution, and National Geographic are just a few of our clients who required our specialized, historic site services.
