Hazardous Material Survey, Buildings 41003 & 42000 Fort Hood, Texas

Project Scope

O’Brien Engineering, Inc. (OEI) commissioned Alpha Terra to complete hazardous materials surveys in support of the renovation of two (2) facilities (Buildings 41003 & 42000) at Fort Hood, TX. The purpose of the survey was to identify, to the extent feasible, regulated building materials such as asbestos, lead-based paint, Polychlorinated Biphenyls-contaminated equipment, mercury bulbs and HVAC refrigerant that may require abatement before demolition activities.

The surveys performed complied with all applicable local state and federal regulations. The asbestos inspection, bulk sampling, and analytical procedures were performed in general accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) interpretations, and guidelines of the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). The lead paint inspection was performed in general accordance with the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s (OSHA) Lead in Construction. The hazardous material surveys for each building were started by Alpha Terra in December 2020. In January 2021, Alpha Terra submitted the completed draft hazardous material surveys for each building and in June 2021, each hazardous material survey was finalized. Alpha Terra met and/or exceeded OEI expectations by providing hazardous material surveys that were accurate, concise, delivered before required due dates, and within budget.

My interest in the environment and sensor technology drove our initial environmental geophysics business start-up. Since then we have expanded to offer full engineering services.


I watched ATI grow up from the sidelines and was excited to expand the Environmental team to a full-service all hazards consultancy.
