Description of the job
On behalf of Cofely GDF Suez, a sweep investigation was carried out in the technical areas of the buildings belonging to the Municipality of Milan, to list and map all asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and man-made vitreous fibres (MMVF). Our company carried out these investigations in over 300 buildings, such as schools, nursery schools, libraries, public swimming pools and offices.
The operations were organised according to the following programme:
- VISUAL INVESTIGATION TO IDENTIFY POSSIBLE ASBESTOS-CONTAINING MATERIALS
- SAMPLE TAKING
- LABORATORY ANALYSES TO DETECT ASBESTOS AND MMVF
- FINAL REPORT INCLUDING ASBESTOS AND MMVF MAPPING ON PLANS, PHOTOGRAPHIC DOCUMENTATIONS AND VERSAR INDEX
Possible asbestos-containing materials under investigation are part of a long list including:
- Pipe insulators
- Gaskets and flanges
The man-made vitreous fibres discovered were classified, according to the "Guidelines for the remediation of man-made vitreous fibre-containing building elements" of the Region Lombardy, as:
- NON CARCINOGENIC
- CARCINOGENIC - TYPE 2
- CARCINOGENIC - TYPE 3
The three above-mentioned cases require three different removal and disposal methods.
