1.0 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

EFI Global, Inc. (EFI) conducted a comprehensive asbestos-containing material inspection of several buildings at the James H. Quillen (Mountain Home) Veterans Administration Medical Center (Site) located at the corner of Lamont and Veterans Way in Mountain Home, Tennessee. The site inspection was conducted from September 28, 2009 to October 2, 2009. The inspection was performed to determine the presence and extent of asbestos-containing materials found at the site prior to the preparation of an Asbestos Management Plan for the facility. Previous survey reports were reviewed and their results reconfirmed during the survey. No roof sampling was performed during this survey due to access issues and condition of roof with one exception where a single sample was collected (Building 46).

Asbestos-containing materials were confirmed to exist within various buildings at the site. EFI recommends a budget of $1,357,300.00 to address the abatement of the presumed asbestos- containing materials identified in this inspection prior to any renovation or demolition activities which would disturb these materials. If these materials will not be disturbed, they may be managed in place through the implementation of the facility’s Asbestos Management Plan.

Veterans Administration January 2010
Based on this information, EFI makes the following recommendations:


  • The non-friable asbestos-containing materials shall be removed by a licensed abatement
    contractor prior to the start of any renovation activity that may disturb such materials.

  • It is recommended that technical specifications be developed to ensure that any scheduled asbestos abatement work is conducted in accordance with NESHAP, OSHA and State of Tennessee asbestos regulations. An asbestos abatement contractor, licensed in the State of Tennessee, is required to perform the removal of any ACM's.

  • EFI recommends that building management incorporate this asbestos-containing building material into the existing Asbestos Operations and Maintenance Plan for the facility.

  • Additionally, EFI recommends that any additional suspect materials that may be uncovered by any future construction or renovation activities, and which were not sampled as a part of this limited asbestos inspection should be considered asbestos- containing until sampling and analysis determines otherwise.

2 .0 Background 2.1 Scope of Work

EFI Global, Inc. (EFI) conducted a comprehensive asbestos-containing material inspection of Buildings 2 (basement only), 8, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20, 34, 36, 37, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 69 and 77 at the James H. Quillen (Mountain Home) Veterans Administration Medical Center (Site) located at the corner of Lamont and Veterans Way in Mountain Home, Tennessee. The site inspection was conducted from September 28, 2009 to October 2, 2009. The inspection was performed to determine the presence and extent of asbestos-containing materials found at the site prior to the preparation of an Asbestos Management Plan for the facility. Previous survey reports were reviewed and their results reconfirmed during the survey. No roof sampling was performed during this survey due to access issues and condition of roof with one exception where a single sample was collected (Building 46).

For the purpose of the scope of work for the comprehensive asbestos-containing material inspection of the Site, the following was performed:


  • Visual Inspection of all accessible spaces within the building.

  • Bulk sampling of suspect materials for the presence of asbestos.

  • Reconfirmation of previous inspection reports.

In addition, due to access issues, the following areas of the Site were not visually inspected and/or sampled:

  • The interior portions of all areas where destruction would be required for access (i.e., inside walls, under floors, etc.)

  • Access to the roof was limited due to access and safety issues. Although the roof was visually assessed, only a single sample of roofing material was collected.

2.3 Prior Environmental Reports

EFI was provided with an asbestos sampling report by the VA Medical Center staff for review.






EFI Global, Inc.


Alley and Associates, Inc. (Alley) performed asbestos sampling within Buildings 8, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20, 34, 35, 36, 37, 44, 45, 46, 47, 69 and 77 in December 2005. Alley primarily identified asbestos-containing flooring and pipe insulation in various buildings during their survey. Limited amounts of window glazing and plaster were identified as asbestos-containing materials.

A large quantity of asbestos-containing flooring and pipe insulation has since been removed from various buildings at the Site during the course of renovations. The Site staff has kept careful record of removed materials since the Alley survey. The previous survey report was reviewed and its results reconfirmed during EFI’s survey.

Additional or supplemental sampling was performed as needed. The previous report is attached as Appendix H.
