the company was founded in 1995, ACT primarily provided asbestos consulting
services. Inspections, surveys, limited sampling, AHERA management plans, and various other consulting needs were being filled.
The company immediately
grew in response to client demands and added the AIHA-LAP, LLC accredited asbestos
laboratory. Asbestos Phase Contrast Microscopy (PCM) - air sample analysis - has been performed since 1995.
In response to increased demands for sampling, asbestos content verifications, and demolition/remediation surveys, in
1998, ACT was certified in asbestos bulk sample analysis under Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM). The base customer population was corporate at this time. However, as employees soon found common concerns in their residences, private property owners and homes began to add to the customer base.
As asbestos abatement activities and inspections were completed, corporate customers found other concerns inside the working environments. These included fungal contaminations (mold), air circulation concerns (physical parameters), and lead paint hazards. The licensing and employee training programs grew to provide customers with a well educated consultant. These inspections continued to increase, creating a demand for laboratory services.
ACT incorporated a fungal surface and air
sample laboratory (mold). AIHA-LAP, LLC proficiency tests are passed to document analyst accuracy, however, due to the lack of federal regulations or consistent state limits, further accreditation has not been acquired.
To be competitive and to provide a full range of options, in 2004, ACT added the Lead
Laboratory and became accredited under AIHA-LAP, LLC’s ELLAP and the EPA’s NLLAP for
air, paint, soil, and dust analysis.
Consulting areas are continuously expanding in the areas of indoor air quality concerns. Radon testing, silica sampling, mercury monitoring, and more!
Additional analysis is always being reviewed and contemplated for accreditations as the consultants' need arise. For example, Nuisance Dust has been analyzed since 2003, pH testing since 2011!
