Safeguarding The Built Environment Since 1983


Environmental Consulting

We consider ourselves the pioneers of environmental consulting and AHERA regulation management. Our founder, William Gallagher, was an Architect; the AHERA regulations were put into law in the 1980’s with lots of new rules and regulations that schools had to follow in order to manage their asbestos containing building materials. Because Mr. Gallagher was an architect, these rules had a profound impact on design and cost when renovating schools. Bill saw an avenue to help school districts maintain compliance, so he became a certified management planner and actually traveled the country teaching school district personnel and other architects how to comply with the AHERA regulations.

The Importance of Environmental Consulting Services

The cost of hiring a consultant for built environment issues is a worthy and in many cases a much-needed investment for business owners. The issues that arise from lead, mold, poor air quality etc. can turn out be very costly and present serious dangers to those who frequent your place of business. To make matters worse, many problems that result from built environment hazards are not easily identifiable by the naked eye, making the services of a professional environmental consultant vital to your company’s ongoing success. The primary reason for this is that environmental consultants will help identify problems and assess risks, ensuring that small issues remain small and larger issues get a proper plan, ensuring a timely resolution. At e.h.c. Associates, we take pride in offering the environmental consulting services that will keep your building compliant, and those who travel through its doors safe and healthy.
