Since 2010 KPH Environmental Corp. has worked with Milwaukee Public Schools to bring their aging and sometimes historic buildings up to energy efficiency. This work often precedes construction projects to upgrade buildings for today’s modern usage. That work continues with new projects at Milwaukee Parkside School of the Arts and Vincent High School.
At Parkside, KPH crews are performing asbestos abatement work located on 2969 South Howell Avenue which started in June. The work includes asbestos pipe insulation, floor tile and mastic, and 16 flanges removed to make way for new unit vents. The project is ahead of schedule on finishing work.
Additional asbestos abatement work started in May at Vincent located at 7501 Granville Road in Milwaukee. The scope of work includes abatement of 223 VAV boxes with asbestos seam coating, 380 asbestos-containing flanges, 3 sinks with asbestos under coating and the elevator flooring.
Both projects are taking place over the summer vacation. While scheduled for completion in September 2018, both projects are ahead of schedule, which is greatly appreciated by the general contractors and MPS.
