 Terracon provided asbestos consulting services for the City of Irving at the Texas Stadium.

Terracon provided asbestos consulting services for the City of Irving at the Texas Stadium Complex located in Irving, Texas. The site consisted of a 78.501-acre tract that was developed with Texas Stadium, a 462,000-square foot recreational facility (football stadium) constructed in 1970 that served as home to the Dallas Cowboys for almost 40 years. The objective of the asbestos consulting services was to perform an asbestos survey of the facility to identify the presence and location of accessible friable and nonfriable asbestos containing materials (ACM) present on the interior and exterior of the structure and to provide air monitoring services and project oversight during asbestos abatement activities. Due to the size of and varied renovation history of the facility, a complex sampling plan was developed to ensure that a thorough asbestos survey was performed. The survey consisted of the collection of more than 4,000 bulk samples throughout the stadium facility. Upon completion of the asbestos survey, Terracon developed a site specific asbestos abatement specifications, aided the City in bid solicitation, evaluation and contractor interviews prior to contract award of the remediation. During the remediation activities, Terracon provided project management consisting of weekly project meeting with the owner and contractors, on-site inspection/air monitoring services, final air clearance testing, and final project closeout documentation. Throughout the remediation activities, Terracon interacted with the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) to develop alternative work practices and procedures to facilitate the abatement in a timely and cost-effective manner. Due to the unique construction of the stadium, some areas were subject only to the EPA National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants, while others were regulated by both state and federal asbestos regulations. Terracon conducted on-site meetings with regulators to clearly delineate these areas, thus ensuring regulatory compliance throughout the project. These meetings also facilitated Terracon's development of alternative work practices and procedures which consisted of containment construction modifications, in place demolition techniques, and packaging methods for the large bulk asbestos waste generated during certain phases of the abatement.
