For owners of construction sites and those involved in construction projects,this concern translates into risky business. For a number of reasons,the chances that contamination will be encountered on a building project are on the rise. Whether due to the lack of clean sites,the popularity of remodelling over new construction,or the growing number of potential contaminants,more and more particpants in building projects will face the problem of contamination. Distinguished by its broad scope,chronological organization,and examples drawn from everyday experience,this authoritative book is designed to educate and inform about the risk associated with the discovery of hazardous materials and how it can be effectively reduced and managed. It offers a common indicator for determining the presence of hazardous wastes on the construction site; explains what immediate steps are necessary if they exist; and addresses how to gauge theiroverall impact on the project. Attention is also devoted to the long-term approach to dealing with a contamination problem,various ways to resolve disputes that may arise over the discovery of contamination,and the risks associated with the cleanup.
