STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS www.swhaz.com PROJECTS Project name & location: Up In Fire - Phoenix, aZ Responding to a structure fire is always a difficult and sensitive situation. From obtaining the emergency permits, developing the scope, taking inventory of personal belongings and working with the tenants who are not allowed back in their homes. After performing the physical inventory of contents, SHC crews removed all burned and damaged materials as asbestos material, packaged and disposed of them as such. Contents, wall systems and floor coverings were removed as asbestos containing materials. Using boom lifts and alternative ways of performing the roof demolition were required due to the instability of the areas SHC returned to the owner, a safe clean structure for rebuild. We noticed we were under the close watch of the media and the tenants which presented even more of a challenge. With that in mind, the SHC work crew provided a professional job to the end users which exceeded their expectations. This project spanned over the course of 2 weeks and at the end the property was clean, safe and ready to be made home again for 12 families.
STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS www.swhaz.com PROJECTS Project name & location: cleaning up the tunnels - Phoenix, aZ The discovery of significant amounts of rat feces put an urgent project of retrofitting a building’s IT system to a delicate standstill. Mobilizing on an emergency basis, SHC responded within 24 hours prepared to complete this project as quickly as possible. The ability to get the building up and running again depended on SHC’s ability to react quickly. This project was located 300 miles from the home office and being prepared and equipped to handle an unseen site was critical. SHC assessed the situation and the plan was rolled out to the owners for approval. All of the crawlspace area of the 8,000 sf building was to be HEPA vacuumed to remove rat and other feces. Asbestos debris was also found in the crawlspace, again confirming the importance of being prepared for everything. Carcasses of dead animals were also found and removed and handled properly. As a proactive solution to the owners, SHC brought in a certified pest control expert to permanently eradicate the problem of rats, cats and other pests getting into this crawlspace and damaging the building’s pipes and wiring. Humane traps were set out to remove live animals from the space. Installation of screens at entry points and backfill was performed at openings into the crawlspace to reduce the ability of the pests reoccupying the clean space. SHC was able to complete this task on short notice in a matter of 3 days. The owners were happy that we successfully completed a day early and allowed them to become operational again.

STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS www.swhaz.com PROJECTS Project name & location: Satellite Central Apartment Building, Oakland, CA Asbestos/Lead Abatement plus soft demolition for renovation and seismic strengthening in a fully occupied 145 Unit, 10 Floor elderly residential apartment building The Challenge: ToabateandprovidesoftdemolitionworkforamajorinteriorandexteriorrenovationofSatellite Central Apartment building in Oakland, CA. The work had to be performed in a building fully occupied by elderly residents, many of which, had disabilities. This required careful planning and coordination with the owner and tenants to minimize disturbing the residents during the abatement activities and also to ensure that they had full access to all entry and exit routes at all times. This meant that the work had to be performed to a very tight schedule during all phases of the project. The Solution: We coordinated in advance with and had meetings with all the relevant stake holders, such as; the building owner, regulatory agencies, building management, tenants, the general contractor and the other service providers. This helped to establish a smooth viable schedule for all phases of the work. It made getting all required permits and insurances in place before the start of the project less of a challenge due to prior planning and coordinating with the stake holders. SHC worked with their partners to have a central place for pre work safety meetings and site specific safety requirements, this was done to minimize disruption to the tenants (which was our top priority.) We Posted a job site board with all project information sheets, again, this was done to ensure safety and also, to ensure proper lines of communication from all parties. All workers of course, wore SHC site safety jackets. All asbestos abatement and soft demolition workwas performed in full containment negative work zones to minimize dust within the work area. All the generated wastes are labeled where required; the waste was then loaded into rolling carts with secure lids and removed from the floors off hours. Independent air clearance was performed by the owner at the completion of the abatement and soft demolition scope of work to release the areas back to the owner for other renovation work. The Result: The project was completed on time, on budget and met the client’s expectations. The successful completion of this project led to happy and satisfied tenants. SHC’s seismic strengthening services expertise met and exceeded all stake holders’ expectations. By using fully trained and experienced work crews, we executed a safe, on schedule work strategy.
STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS www.swhaz.com PROJECTS Project name & location: Breaking Down the Walls - Phoenix, aZ Selective demolition of block walls containing asbestos containing vermiculite. Working side by side with a General contractor on an active public library.If the efforts by City agencies to improve the local public buildings, they ran across unexpected hurdles and expenditures.With little wiggle room in the schedule or budget, the agency worked with SHC to develop the methods, time tables and required safety precautions that were developed with the public in mind. Daily safety meetings were held to review and assess the safety and ever changing. SHC performed saw cutting on pre marked sections to allow for new doorways. In other areas, complete demolition of selected walls was performed to allow for expansion of the building.All materials were handled as asbestos containing materialsandkeptwet,labeledandwrappedasneeded.Performing demolition from scaffold in a safe and quiet manner is difficult in any situation, however doing it in suits and respirators make this task more challenging in the heat of the Arizona sun. This abatement project was completed in approximately 4 weeks from when the appropriate permits were valid and completion. We removed 80 cubic yards of asbestos waste from the site.Upon substantial completion of the project third party air sampling verified the ability to deregulate the area and return the areas to the owner.During the course of this project the regulatory agency inspected the area two times and found no items of violation. SHC had no safety violations and completed this project on time.
STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS www.swhaz.com Project name & location: ADOA I-19, Interstate 19 Kilometer Post 16.5 median Nature of SHC’s Responsibility: At the request of the Arizona Department of Transportation, SHC responded to a tanker truck accident on I-19. The tanker truck was hauling up to 7800-gallonsofgasoline and dieselfuel.The accidentresulted in the release of several hundred gallons of fuel onto the soil in the median, some of which also passed into a stormwater drainage canal. The spill was of particular concern due to the proximity of the Santa Cruz River and the fact that the groundwater levels in the area ranged between 15 and 60 feet below ground surface. SHC set up the necessary traffic control, installed stormwater controls, obtained clearance from Blue Stake, and obtained the necessary permits to complete the remediation. Petroleum contaminated soil (pcs) was removed from the stormwater drainage canal and the median and was loaded into end dump trucks to be hauled off to the Cactus Landfill for disposal. Approximately 3,069 tons of pcs was hauled offsite and disposed of. SHC completed confirmation sampling throughout the remediation project to ensure that contaminant levels were below the applicable Arizona Residential Soil Remediation Levels and Groundwater Protection Levels. Following confirmation that the remediation was complete, SHC backfilled the excavation and returned the site to pre-spill conditions. Total Cost of the Project: $331,972.09 (T&M Contract) Completion Date: July 2010 (Project Duration: 2 months) Project name & location: SUNDT Historic Landfill Remediation - Tucson, AZ Nature of SHC’s Responsibility: SHC was contracted to remediate a historic landfill that had been in operation during the 1960’s and 1970’s.

STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS www.swhaz.com Project name & location: Mt. Graham - Mt. Graham Observatory, AZ Nature of SHC’s Responsibility: At the request of the University of Arizona, SHC responded to a large diesel spill from an above ground storage tank at the Mount Graham Observatory. After working with University of Arizona personnel to work out a plan of action, SHC personnel mobilized to the Observatory on two occasions to provide bioremediation services to areas around the observatory where soil excavation was not feasible. SHC collected and analyzed initial samples and final samples of the bioremediation areas to confirm that bioremediation efforts were successful. SHC also collected and analyzed confirmation soil samples from the excavation areas. The University of Arizona excavated the pcs from other areas around the Observatory and transported the wastes to the base station at the base of the mountain. SHC provided transportation of the wastes from that point to the Los Reales landfill in Tucson, AZ. A total of 1,515 tons of pcs were removed and disposed of as a result of the spill.
