Napa State Hospital is a psychiatric hospital in Napa, California, founded in 1875.
At the request of HIBSER YAMAUCHI (HY) Architects, Inc via the State of California Department of General Services. We performed a hazardous materials survey of the Napa State Hospital, buildings; 168, 195, 196, 197, 198 and 199 located on the hospital campus. The purpose of the surveys was to identify hazardous materials required to be disturbed prior to the scheduled Fire Alarm Replacement Project. The surveys included an asbestos survey to identify asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and/or asbestos-containing construction materials (ACCM), lead paint screening to identify lead-based coatings (LBC) and/or lead-containing coatings (LCC), and a visual inspection to identify suspect poly-chlorinated biphenyl (PCB) containing light ballasts and suspect mercury-containing florescent light tubes.
A specification was created and used for a public bid for the Department of General Services. Was retained as the consultant of choice for the daily monitoring and other professional hazardous materials services over a two year period.
