The strength behind E&L Construction Group lies in the talent and integrity of our people. Very simply: we attract and keep the best in the business.
By bringing the right players to the table, providing the tools necessary to do the job well, responding quickly, communicating effectively, and delivering high quality projects on time and on budget, E&L has built a solid reputation as the construction company of choice.The task before us was simple- we were to abate whatever loose asbestos caulking from the monitor windows high above the plant floor we could find. Next, encapsulate all of the glass and remaining caulk to prevent it from falling out as the presses hammered out the steel shapes of the automakers new models, big and small. The location of the work was the first challenge to tackle- our solution was a composite mix of aluminum picks, scissor and boom lifts (both big and small), scaffolding and horizontal life lines with certified anchorage points strung throughout the plant like spider webs. The second obstacle was compounded by the first problem. Given the degree of difficulty from the poor access when coupled with the crumbling ACM caulking that was sprinkled & scattered on the tops of the bus ducts, overhead piping, crane rails, etc. we had to engineer a system of visqueen ‘hammocks’ to capture all of the tiny pieces that would inevitably fall as we proceeded with the abatement. As the process ended the visqueen came down we had finished the original scope of work in 4 weeks (two weeks ahead of schedule) including two additional areas without incident and $210,000 under our original budget
