Theodore Levin Federal Courthouse
TEC was selected as the project management and industrial hygiene consultant for facility wide renovation of the Theodore Levin U.S. Courthouse site in Detroit, MI. The site consists of an 11 story, 629,000 square foot building. The building houses 24 Federal Courtrooms and is managed by the General Services Administration (GSA) of the Federal Government.
The project management team consists of GSA, Jacobs Engineering, The Christman Company and TEC. TEC has been tasked with management of the industrial hygiene, and environmental issues associated with the renovation project. The primary focus is on asbestos containing materials and materials containing lead, and lead based paint. Additional concerns have been encountered regarding mold and nuisance dust, as well as the ongoing screening of subsurface soils.
Activities commenced in 2016 and project completion is scheduled for 2019. Taking into consideration the historic nature of the building, the age, and intricate design, the project team anticipated that unique challenges would arise that required a flexible, creative, responsive team of professionals to accommodate budgetary and scheduling challenges.
