While renovations are exciting, they are also full of endless government forms and so many acronyms. When getting a permint in NYC, you may need to determine if you have asbestos or ACM (asbestos-containing materials). Testor can help you navigate this process. Testor’s accredited investigators can provide asbestos inspection. Once tested, we can provide you with the results and information you need to proceed.
I’m good to go – no asbestos found! What next?
An ACP-5 is an asbestos assessment report required by the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB). It certifies that a building (or the relevant part of the building) is free of asbestos. (This form is also used if the area has asbestos that will not be disturbed by the work or is minimal enough to constitute a minor project.) This form needs to be completed and submitted by a Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)-certified asbestos investigator. Testor’s qualified staff can handle these forms for you.
But what if too much asbestos is found?
Sounds scary, but no need to panic or cancel your plans. Testor can help here as well. We will work with you or your contractor to help facilitate the removal, cleaning and monitoring. And we will file the necessary ACP-7 (an Asbestos Project Notification) with the city.
While asbestos can be dangerous and must be taken seriously, Testor’s experienced investigators and handlers are here to help you navigate New York City’s requirements and make your dream project a reality! How can we help you?
