Abatement & Demolition Management—Historic Mansion

Successfully developed and implemented hazardous material abatement plans in a structurally unsound historical building in a high visibility location adjacent to the Colorado State Capitol Building. 

The home was a prominent 1880s historic home in a Denver, Colorado, neighborhood in once occupied by Denver’s elite. The home was owned by the state since 1940 and had been vacant since 1976. In 2007, the house was found to be structurally unsound and was condemned. Landmark provided a demolition management and asbestos abatement oversight for this project where historical elements and significant architectural details were carefully salvaged and preserved for the future. Landmark developed a Technical Specification for abatement, which included specific engineering controls and best management practices required for structural stabilization for unstable areas to support protection of workers, public health, and the environment.  During the work Landmark conducted air monitoring for asbestos and lead as well as noise and nuisances dusts as the work required large generators and heavy equipment to operate in close confines to adjacent historical and residential structures.
