UNIQUE PROJECT SCOPE
A bridge, which carried a lot of daily traffic, was planned in the retrofit project was planned in the Palm Desert community. The city hired a general contractor who would be responsible for installing crossbeams in order to strengthen the bridge in the event of a large earthquake. The crossbeams would be welded on to the existing beams. Before the welding process could begin, the lead paint on the existing beams would need to be completely removed. The general contractor tasked A-Tech with putting together a lead removal work plan. As part of this work plan, A-Tech enacted a clearance criteria for all lead wipes, which would protect all workers welding the crossbeams onto the existing beams. Before the start of this project, A-Tech obtained soil samples below the bridge as background samples prior to the start of the paint stripping from the beams.
