Industrial Hygiene—Many Glacier Hotel Renovation


Conducted hazardous materials surveys, developed construction documents, and monitored worker safety and environmental controls for the 10-year $190MM National Park Service Centennial Restoration of the Many Glacier Hotel.


Many Glacier Hotel is a popular National Historic hotel in operation since construction in 1916; historic preservation was imperative to this project. This 10-year multi-phase project included replacement of antiquated and/or hazardous building systems, upgrades to structural and seismic stability, and required building code improvements. Landmark assessed the site for hazardous or regulated materials and worked in close concert with a multidisciplinary team focused on protecting the historical building fabric. This flagship project for the National Park Service was conducted within the streamlined Design-Bid-Build process established by the Department of the Interior.

We conducted hazardous materials investigations in the 100-year-old structure with a complex renovation history by collecting over 500 samples to identify asbestos containing materials, lead-based paint, hydrocarbon contaminated soil, and mold and rodent infestation that would require abatement during renovation. This information was used to develop design documents and construction specifications for the renovation project. Landmark prepared drawings and specifications for the abatement and management of regulated materials and collaborated with a team of 10 separate disciplines. The abatement project was conducted in multiple phases over a seven year period and included careful management of a threatened species of bats that inhabited the structure.
