The Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation had Asbestos Sprayed-on Fireproofing in the Maintenance Hallways of this Building. Looking into Removal of the Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM), it was Determined that the Total Cost would be $125,000,000 Canadian Dollars. Research into Other Abatement Methods Resulted in Encasement as a Viable Alternative to Full Blown Removal.

The Canadian Ministry of Labour Declared that No Type 3 Enclosure or Negative Air Machines would be Necessary for ACM Encasement Using GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.’s Products. Any Areas where Protective Coatings were Not Needed were Masked Off, then a Fine Mist of PrepLESS Primer™ was Sprayed on the ACM to Lock Down any Loose Fibers and Debris. This was Followed by Two Full Coats of PrepLESS Primer™ Effectively Shrink Wrapping the ACM to the Substrate. Two Coats of AsbestoSafe® TopCoat were then Applied Locking the ACM Behind a Seamless, Durable and Abuse Resistant Barrier. The Abatement Cost for this Project Using GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.’s Products Totaled Only $7,000,000 Canadian Dollars. That is a Cost Savings of 94% Over Removal, Disposal and Replacement of the Fire Proofing Material.
