Project Type: Asbestos, Lead, Mercury & PCB Remediation and Demolition
Project Value: $750,000-$1,000,000
Scope of Work:
The Potts Company employed EHG to perform the asbestos abatement, lead remediation, select interior demolition and structural demolition of the Historic Newnan Hospital. The original historic hospital dates back to 1925 with multiple additions from the 1940’s, 1970’s, and 1980’s totaling 122,000 square feet. The structural demolition scope was challenging for EHG, as it included the surgical separation and complete demolition of five wings attached to the historic hospital to remain.
The portions of the structure that was surgically separated and completely demolished totaled over 39,000 square feet. Several of the smaller building additions demolished were within an isolated courtyard area and had to be demolished by hand. EHG brought the remaining 83,000sf of interior space back to a “white box” condition leaving only structural members and exterior walls to remain. Plans for the new facility include a courtyard, a glass wall, and a walkway tying the historic part of the old hospital to the new part of the campus.
Prior to beginning demolition activities, EHG removed over 130,000 square feet of asbestos-containing material such as floor tile, mastic, pipe insulation, ceiling tiles, joint compound, roofing and other miscellaneous materials. EHG also remediated the lead, mercury and
PCB from the structure. The EHG abatement team safely removed approximately 4,100 fluorescent light tubes, 150 mercury thermostats, 2,000 PCB light fixture ballast, 20 transformers, and four hydrolytic elevators.
