Midwest Environmental Consulting, L.L.C. (MEC) staff have a long-standing excellent record of working with asbestos rules and regulations. Staff members have helped build the National Institute of Building Science Manual "Operation and Maintenance for Managing Asbestos in Place" in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We have worked with building owners and managers to promote sound recommendations while on the Minnesota Department of Health regulatory advisory committees. Our understanding of the construction trades, rules, and regulations and the adverse effects that can be caused by improper management of asbestos have helped us develop sound services for asbestos-related work.
