1.1    SUMMARY

  A.   Applicable provisions of Division 1 - General Requirements, Drawings, and other
       provisions and requirements of the Contract Documents apply to work of this Section.
       This specification is being included as part of the bid package to be followed for the
       removal of asbestos that would be disturbed during the course of the project.

  B.   This Section includes the removal, control and disposal of friable and nonfriable
       asbestos containing materials (ACM) which will be encountered during the KONA
       VOR building demolition located at the VOR facility in KONA, Hawaii. The work
       includes, but is not limited to: the construction of temporary enclosures to isolate the
       work area, the establishment of negative-air pressure within the isolated work area, the
       removal of ACM from the isolated work area, and the legal disposal of the removed
       ACM from FAA property. This specification covers ACM located in the VOR facility,
       exterior buildings located on FAA property, and the metal container located next to the
       VOR building.
         1.    Observe all existing conditions prior to submitting a bid. The Contractor is
               expected to have considered, and included in their bid, all aspects and liability
               of the existing conditions and their impact, particularly to cost and health and
               safety of workers and occupants, and proper function and operation of the
               facility. Additionally, the Contractor shall be aware of other work being
               performed. Failure to visit the site shall in no way relieve the Contractor from
               the necessity of furnishing materials or performing any work that may be
               required to complete the work in accordance with the Contract Documents
               without additional cost to the FAA. Additional site visits required by the
               Contractor shall be scheduled with the FAA.
        2.     The quantities and locations of ACM and the extent of work indicated are only
               best estimates that are limited by the physical constraints imposed by occupancy
               of the facility. Material information and quantities were obtained from previous
               site surveys performed by others. Accordingly, minor variations (plus or minus
               10 percent) in quantities of ACM within the limits of containment for each
               abatement area are considered as having no impact on contract sum and contract
               performance period. Locations of ACM different than indicated on drawings
               but within the limits of containment are considered as having no impact on
               contract sum and contract performance period. Where additional asbestos
               abatement work is required beyond the above variations, the contract sum and
               contract performance period will be adjusted under provisions of Division One
               of the Specifications.

contractor shall comply fully with these regulations and all applicable laws. Prior to any waste
being transported off- site, the contractor shall provide a list to the COR/RE for review that includes
the following: 1) applicable regulations regarding waste requirements relative to the project; 2) the
chosen disposal site's requirements; and 3) a blank waste manifest.

The contractor shall document actual disposal of the waste at the designated landfill by completing a
disposal certificate and forwarding the original and a copy to the COR/RE.

1.11.1   Removal of Waste From the Work Area

Removal of LBP waste from the work area shall take place in the following manner. From inside
the work area, a worker in PPE will transfer a sealed, wet-wiped waste container to the EDF. A
second worker, also in PPE, will wash down the container over the drainage/filtration system and
transfer the decontaminated container into the holding area. A third worker, in PPE, will place the
decontaminated container into a clean, labeled 6 mil container. The outer container shall then be
sealed. The worker will then wet-wipe the exterior of the exterior of the outer container. The
required waste generator information labeling will be applied at this stage.

The container can now be transferred outside the holding area to a storage trailer or truck until it is
transported to the approved disposal facility. The storage containers, or storage areas, shall be
secured with a suitable lock when not being accessed for waste storage purposes. Hazard signs are
required on the exteriors of all storage containers or storage areas.

The decontamination procedure for contaminated equipment being passed out from inside the work
area will be consistent with that of the waste load-out. All equipment will be thoroughly
decontaminated in the wash area before being passed into the holding area.

Non-disposable equipment that cannot be adequately decontaminated will be HEPA vacuumed
and/or wet wiped in the EDF. The contaminated equipment will then be packaged in a sealed,
labeled 6 mil bag or appropriate container. The bagged/containerized equipment can then be passed
into the EDF for wet wiping.            At the completion of the wet decontamination, the
bagged/containerized equipment will be prepared for transportation from the work area.

1.11.4   LBP Disposal Transport and Disposal of LBP Waste

The contractor shall contact the regional EPA, state and local authorities to determine LBP disposal
requirements. The requirements of the RCRA and applicable state solid waste plan requirements
shall be adhered to. A DOT certified waste transporter shall be required for the transport of lead-
containing or lead-contaminated materials considered to be hazardous materials.

The contractor may perform a waste characterization test on representative lead abatement wastes to
determine if the materials are regulated under RCRA, or may presume the lead abatement wastes
are RCRA regulated and dispose of accordingly. For Hawaii a sites, if the Toxicity Characteristic
Leaching Procedure (TCLP) analysis indicates that the lead concentration exceeds 5 parts per
million (ppm) or greater, the waste is regulated by Hawaii as a hazardous waste and shall be
disposed of accordingly. Landfills in Hawaii do not accept hazardous wastes.

The following materials shall be tested to evaluate their hazard classification, or shall be presumed
to be hazardous waste:

         -   Removed paint and/or paint chips
         -   HEPA and waste water filters
         -   Dust from HEPA vacuums, HEPA filters and damp sweeping
         -   Plastic sheets, duct tape and other materials used during the LBP removal
         -   cleaning cloths, sponges, mops, respirator cartridges, disposable suits/gloves and other
             materials used for testing, abatement and cleanup

NOTE:        State of Hawaii Department of Health Solid and Hazardous Waste Branch Office of
             Solid Waste Management does not consider intact painted building materials to be
             hazardous wastes and does not require the debris to be disposed of as hazardous waste.
             Components that have been scraped free of loose paint chips and encapsulated will be
             demolished with the building and sent to the landfill as general construction debris
             only if the paint remains intact and firmly adhered to the painted building material. If
             the paint becomes loose or dislodged from the painted building material then the waste
             characterization shall be performed and the painted debris shall be disposed of
             accordingly. This protocol shall apply in all cases, except for projects where more
             stringent requirements are included in the project-specific task order requirements.


Re-establishment of the work area shall only occur following completion of clean-up and
encapsulation (if appropriate) procedures, and after a final project clearance inspection has been
performed, accepted and documented by the COR/RE.


The contractor shall repair all damage that occurred as a result of abatement activities, and restore
the work space in accordance with the final inspection list.


The contractor shall participate in a demobilization walk-through with the COR/RE to ensure
conformity to this specification. The contractor shall correct all deficiencies prior to completing
demobilization from the site.
