NYC Asbestos Services
We specialize in asbestos testing services, hazardous materials testing, and remediation planning services based in New York City. For any space that will undergo renovation, demolition, or tenant buildout; New York City government requires that a certified NYC DEP (New York City Department of Environmental Protection) Asbestos Investigator performs a thorough asbestos survey of the area. Our Union, NJ office maintains a team of 9 full-time NYC DEP-certified asbestos investigators who are on-call 7 days a week with the ability to issue ACP 5 forms (Asbestos Control Program) as needed by our NYC clients. Our team is experienced in turning these documents over expeditiously; typically within 24 hours of receiving official lab results, scope drawings, and PW 1 forms (Plan/Work application). We also have 12 full-time NYS DOL certified Asbestos Project Monitors that can respond to even the most urgent abatement air monitoring requests. At Hillmann Consulting, we don’t use 1099/subcontractors to do this type of work because we believe in consistency and the only way to ensure consistency is to hire and retain quality staff.
NYC DEP ACP-5 FORMS
The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), in conjunction with the Department of Buildings (DOB), requires ACP 5 forms to filed for any space that will undergo a renovation, demolition, or tenant buildout. Only an NYC DEP-certified asbestos investigator can file an ACP 5 form. Hillmann Consulting is experienced in turning these documents over expeditiously; typically within 24 hours of receiving official lab results, scope drawings, and PW 1 forms.

Asbestos Operations & Maintenance (O&M)
As part of our asbestos services, Hillmann Consulting creates Operations & Maintenance (O&M) programs as means to inventory and manage asbestos materials in place. O&M is a documented program consisting of training, clean-up, work practices, and surveillance in order to maintain asbestos-containing materials in good condition. The goal of O&M is to minimize occupant exposure to asbestos fibers. The O&M is primarily for owners and managers of office buildings, shopping centers, apartment buildings, hospitals, and similar facilities that may be constructed with asbestos-containing building materials. It provides building owners, managers, workers, and other key building staff basic information on how to develop and carry out O&M programs for managing asbestos in place.
Invitation for Asbestos Bid Document
Whenever the presence of asbestos has been detected within a building, many clients elect to have the hazardous materials abated. Hillmann Consulting’s professional staff of asbestos safety consultants can create a site-specific Invitation for Bid (IFB) document which details information in regards to the location, condition, quantity, and type of any asbestos-containing substances to be removed. The IFB also contains client-specific procedures and requirements for bidding on the project. This document is used by abatement contractors as a guide for materials to be abated and ensures ‘apples to apples’ bids for comparison purposes.
Third Party Asbestos Abatement Air Monitoring Services
Hillmann Consulting conducts asbestos abatement procedures and air quality monitoring to ensure the complete performance of the project specifications in a cost-effective and safe manner that conforms to government rules and regulations. This service protects building occupants, abatement workers, and the public from asbestos-related hazards and keeps building owners and property managers in compliance with applicable regulations.
Our goal is to quickly diagnose and rectify any issues that are common to an abatement project before they have the potential to impact safety, productivity, or budget. Hillmann Consulting provides value to projects by continually seeking the most effective and efficient remediation methods that best serve the needs of our clients.
Hazardous Materials Surveys
The demolition of any structure requires the identification and removal of any and all hazardous materials as to prevent occupational exposure, as well as to ensure proper disposal of said materials. Hillmann Consulting implements hazardous materials (HazMat) surveys and hazardous materials testing for pre-demolition, renovation, and expansion projects. These investigations are generally administered for full floor or building demolition to locate, identity, and quantify asbestos-containing materials, lead-based paint, EPA-classified universal waste, radiation sources, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), ozone-depleting substances (ODS), and fuel.
The comprehensive survey provides property owners or developers with an inventory of hazardous wastes common to a wide variety of structures. An accurate budget can then be forecasted for demolition and abatement activities, as to avoid Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) liability by ensuring proper disposal. It also guarantees that building occupants and employees are protected from potential environmental hazards during demolition and abatement.
Hillmann Consulting can develop and provide specifications and bid documents for an abatement program of any hazardous materials affected by proposed construction. Hillmann Consulting also performs all necessary monitoring and coordination during the abatement process to ensure compliance with the specifications and regulatory adherence with all NYC DOB, DEP, and other relevant city, state, and federal requirements.
