Charleston Navy Yard
Client: U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service
Project Type: Archival Research; Hazardous Materials Mitigation Study
Under the direction of John G. Waite, the firm prepared a study documenting the ropewalk’s significance. Also, because many of the traditional materials utilized in the manufacture of rope have been determined to contain hazardous materials, the firm, in collaboration with HUB Testing Laboratories of Waltham, MA, prepared a hazardous materials mitigation study documenting the extent of hazardous material remaining in the ropewalk and providing recommendations and cost projections for abatement.
