Environmental Project Support

Providing aid to the project manager and architect in understanding environmental issues that may affect their project.

These tools and resources cover specific environmental issues including, but not limited to, Air Emission Sources, Geothermal Wells, Ground Water Management, Hazardous Materials Management (PCBs, Lead Paint, Asbestos), Soil Management, Storm Water Management, and Tank Management (e.g., removal and installation).

Did You Know?

ALL projects that could potentially generate dust, regardless of the presence or absence of asbestos, MUST file a Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) Permit AQ-06 at least 10 days prior to the start of disturbance. If the project needs an emergency waiver for unexpected asbestos, MassDEP will ask for the AQ-06 permit number.
