Abatement by Encasement: Safeguarding People while Saving MoneyTM

Brooklyn Navy Yard – Brooklyn, NY

Case History

Property:

Brooklyn Navy Yard

Location:

Brooklyn, NY

Challenge:

The building had not been occupied for many years and the interior was in very poor condition. The steel was rusting and had been previously painted with lead-based paint. All of the interior walls, ceilings and support columns were also covered with flaking and delaminating lead-based paint.

Solution:

A system that would address the rust and corrosion, encase the remaining lead-based paint, provide a cost effective long-term solution was employed. The SE-110CI was used to prime all of the rusted steel and the SE-110 was used to stabilize all of the other surfaces. The SE-120 was then used to provide a seamless and flexible finish to the entire interior of the building.
