Location

Dunn Paper Company, Manufacturing Facility, 218 Riverview Street, Port Huron, Michigan 48060.

Scope

Huron Consultants was retained by Dunn Paper Company to conduct asbestos and hazardous material sampling prior to planned plant renovations at the Dunn Paper Company manufacturing facility. The project included sampling of suspect asbestos-containing materials, including thermal insulation and pipe wrap. The project also included the sampling of suspect lead-based paint of plant building trusses. A licensed industrial hygienist conducted selected sampling and samples were submitted to an accredited laboratory for analysis.

Special Features

The project was completed on an expedited basis to accommodate internal Dunn Paper scheduling issues. Huron Consultants collected additional samples of potentially hazardous materials at the direction of Dunn Paper during field activities. The building was occupied and operational at the time of sampling, so Huron Consultants had to be sensitive to the concerns and safety of plant employees. Lastly, Dunn Paper company requested that Huron coordinate a site-walk with an abatement subcontractor familiar with point welding and other techniques to minimize lead exposure to provide Dunn Paper with budgetary estimates for plant renovations.
