Projects by Industry

Healthcare

Healthcare

Since 1987, Winter Environmental has worked in multiple healthcare facilities including general treatment, trauma and assisted care facilities from the Southwest to the Mid-Atlantic United States. At the forefront of all Winter Environmental’s work with healthcare facilities is an understanding of the appreciation of the healthcare environment and how, more than any other industry, it is often necessary for the facility’s operations to be inhibited as little as possible throughout our work. Even the simplest remediation activities including asbestos, lead and mold abatement, construction, and demolition create obvious and understandable concerns for workers and patients alike. The nature of healthcare facility remediation, abatement, demolition and construction requires the utmost care and attention in Infection Control Risk and Assessment (ICRA) procedures, establishing reliable and adequate containment, abatement, mitigation and decontamination throughout the process. Additionally, clear communication must be maintained between Winter Environmental and employees and personnel of the healthcare facility. Our staff has been trained and certified by numerous healthcare operations and organizations relating to ICRA and Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). We also stay abreast of all industry trends to best serve our clients.
Government

Government

Federal Government/Military – Local Government

As a leader on the world stage, the federal government demands work and final results that are second to none. From facilities that manufacture top secret military aircraft, to naval bases providing port to any of the ships and equipment to the world’s largest naval fleet, to our nation’s space program and our national response to catastrophic or man-made events, Winter Environmental understands the requirements to perform for these clients. Not only is the work demanding; the process and demand to meet numerous and oft-updated regulations for any federal government job requires capabilities that a team of seasoned veterans can deliver. State and local government agencies have also relied on Winter Environmental to provide expertise in addressing environmental abatement and remediation projects.
Nuclear Decontamination

Nuclear Decontamination

Perhaps like no other industry, the term “nuclear” can create fear or uncertainty with nearly any audience not directly connected with or having a deep breadth of experience with such facilities.U.S. nuclear facilities are aging, and with that age comes the need for upgrading of systems and or remediation of hazardous materials. There was a time when the term “nuclear” signified the cutting edge of technology. In some ways, that thinking remains accurate. Nuclear energy continues to offer a clean and highly efficient method of energy development – but efficiency is lost with antiquated or aging facilities. This is where Winter Environmental answers the call. With personnel deeply trained in the numerous methods of remediation, demolition and upgrading of facility infrastructures and hazardous waste containment, Winter Environmental is seasoned and has the capability to handle nearly any job demanded at nuclear facilities in the United States.
Industrial/Power

Industrial/Power

Removal of contaminants such as asbestos and mold, and the removal and installations and infrastructure components including thermal system insulation, tank insulation, structural fireproofing, duct insulation, floor tile and mastic, Transite panels, transite lab hoods, caulking/glazing, and sheetrock, Winter Environmental’s OSHA-certified professionals can meet the needs of any industrial project. For utility companies, Winter Environmental has experience in project work for some of the largest utility companies in the state of Georgia and has been Georgia Power's on-call contractor for over 10 years.


Recognizing the need for change and the contraction of many industrial generation, manufacturing and formulating facilities across the nation, Winter Environmental has provided its abatement and select demolition services at many facilities that have undergone partial or complete decontamination and demolition. Working with owners, prime demolition contractors or CM/EPC Firms, Winter Environmental has conducted asbestos abatement at more than 10 Fossil plants and 15 industrial facilities in the past seven years. Our experience includes work on large-scope industrial and utility jobs involving highly intricate work for nationally known clients including AEP; Duke Power; DAK; Southern Company; Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA); SCANA; and, Dominion Power.


In addition to the work performed, attention and a full understanding of the latest updates to governmental regulations on work performed is an absolute must. In the industrial environment, know-how and an understanding of regulated asbestos materials and handling and laws can dramatically lower the risk of costly litigation. The experience that Winter Environmental brings to the table helps to minimize risk while seeing your project through to completion.

Commercial/Multi-family

Commercial/Multi-family

Winter Environmental has a diverse portfolio of projects involving remediation work in commercial and residential facilities. From university dormitories, to apartment buildings, townhomes, and multi-family condominium centers, Winter Environmental understands how to complete work in these locations while minimizing disruptions to daily routines. Often, this work requires second and third shift scheduling and execution, along with weekend work that allows businesses to maintain their operational routine – a routine familiar to Winter Environmental and our ability to execute projects.

Education

Education

Winter Environmental has successfully completed a diverse number of asbestos, lead and mold remediation projects for numerous clients at their educational facilities. For each project, Winter Environmental makes it a priority to work with management to minimize interruptions to the school’s or other facility’s operations. Winter Environmental understands that while work is underway at the facility, the educational agenda and goals of the facility’s staff must not be compromised in any way. Our work is completed safely and timely in a manner to minimize disruption to daily operations.
