Project Summary Pre-Renovation Surveys – Air Force Base
Location Edinburg, Texas
Service Leaded Paint, Asbestos
Outcome Pre-Renovation Report

Portions of the former Moore Air Force Base in Edinburg have been turned over to various government entities for their use. Among those improvements is a former hangar most recently occupied by the United States Department of Agriculture. In preparation for expansion of the existing metal clad structure, Targus was engaged under contract to Eco and Associates to conduct lead and asbestos surveys of the existing structure and surrounding exterior infrastructure with potential to be disturbed or relocated. The lead services focused on painted metal components and included over 100 field measurements by X-ray fluorescence, supplemented by the collection of paint chips used to verify the results of the field survey. The survey identified the presence of leaded paint on only one appurtenance, a valved backflow preventer that appeared to serve fire water distribution. Suspect asbestos containing materials were demonstrated to be non-ACM.
