In 2015 Ambipar Response OSE completed a large scale asbestos abatement project at the Thomas Jefferson Hotel (later the Cabana Hotel, then Leer Tower) in Birmingham, AL. The 19 story building completed in 1929 is well known for having the last rooftop zeppelin mooring mast in the world. It is one of the multiple revitalization projects underway in downtown Birmingham and we were excited to be part of the restoration team.
OSE was brought on to perform asbestos abatement from the basement to the roof and selective demolition. We also performed sand blasting to remove roofing tar. Our team of ten asbestos certified technicians worked for three months completing the project on time and in budget. The building will feature apartments, a ground floor restaurant and retail space, and an entertaining space.
