Located near the iconic corner of Sunset Boulevard and Vine Street (Sunset and Vine), Sunset Media Center sits in the heart of Hollywood,undergoing significant revitalization as public and private funds have added substantial retail amenities and transit infrastructure.The Class A office space building, constructed in 1971, consists of 321,883 square feet. Tenants include highly visible entertainment and media companies.
Vista Environmental Consulting (Vista) performed as-needed on-site asbestos consulting services during asbestos abatement activities related to tenant improvement, routine maintenance and construction activities.
Since daily building and tenant operations continued during construction at this occupied high-rise commercial building, special attention was given to daily asbestos abatement oversight activities to minimize any disturbance to tenants or occupants. Vista performed asbestos consulting services on a “24-hour” schedule including nights and weekends to meet construction schedules.
Asbestos consulting services performed included daily observation, monitoring and documentation; pre-abatement and daily abatement visual inspections; daily air monitoring for asbestos abatement and daily on-site analysis of air samples; and Issued Clearance Speed Memos for each area of successful remediation.
Vista reviewed pre-submittals ongoing and updated certifications as personnel and processes change, and abatement contractor’s performance of proper containment, removal techniques and compliance.
At the completion of the abatement activity, we performed a final visual of the abatement area to confirm that the contractor removed the identified hazardous, conducted final clearance environmental air sampling and analysis for asbestos abatement, and prepared closeout report documentation.
