Here at Maypole we strive to make obtaining an ACP-5 for your DOB filing in NYC as seamless and effortless as possible. We want you to rest assured that your asbestos testing is being taken care of so that you can focus on the other details of your job. If you have any questions along the way we are always here to help you navigate through the process!
Once Maypole has received all the details of the project we will provide you with a proposal based on the scope of work - usually within 24 hours or less depending on how urgent it is. The faster we receive the specifics the faster we can get you your quote.
Once the proposal is approved we can proceed to schedule the inspection - potentially as quickly as the next day if needed. We are very flexible and are usually able to accommodate the desired dates and times of our clients.
The inspector will drop of the samples at the lab the same day as the inspection. Standard turnaround for the results is 48-hours; however, they can be rushed at an additional fee if necessary.
Once the results are received back from the lab, if no asbestos was found, Maypole will issue the ACP-5. We will send an electronic copy to you for your records as well as original, signed and stamped, copies for your NYC DOB filing.
If you have additional questions Maypole is always here to discuss your concerns and ensure that you have all the information you need. If asbestos is found we can walk you through what your options are and how to best move forward.
Most construction projects requiring a work permit from the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB) must file a complete construction package for New York City approval. The construction package, in addition to signed/sealed plans, requires an ACP-5 form.
Local Law 76/85 mandates an investigation to verify that no asbestos is present in the materials that will be disturbed. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Asbestos Assessment Report (ACP-5 form) confirms the project scope is asbestos free.
Maypole's standard turnaround for an ACP-5 is 48-hours from the time of inspection. If needed, this can be expedited to 24-hours at an additional fee.
Maypole accepts all major credit cards. We offer the ability for you to pay at the time of inspection or on-line at a later date. If preferred, payment can also be made by check.
Once Maypole has issued the ACP-5 we will email a digital copy to you for your records. Additionally, we will send original, signed and stamped, copies to be used for the DOB filing. These can be sent to whichever address and contact you prefer.
The duration of the inpsection will vary depending on the scope of work. The majority of our inspections take somewhere between 45 minutes to an hour.
Maypole provides 48-hour turnaround and top-notch customer service. We support our clients throughout the entire process and provide results quickly so that you can focus on all the other important things in your life.
This is up to you! Many times our clients provide access to the space without anyone being there. Other times the architect, home owner, or project manager will be on-site during the inspection. We can work with whatever is easiest for you.
Prior to the inspection our team will thoroughly examine the project’s construction documents, most notably the demolition plans and notes. Once it is determined which materials will be disturbed during the demolition phase, we determine how many samples will need to be taken.
During the inspection the inspector makes small probes into each material being sampled. Before taking each sample he will wet the area to minimize the amount of dust particles released. He or she then labels and records all the samples before bringing them to a certified laboratory for analysis.
If asbestos is found, the laboratory will advise the affected materials and the amount of asbestos present in each. We will then contact you to review the materials and locations that came up positive and we can assist you in determining optimal next steps for your project.
If abatement is necessary we can provide you with resources where you can find a suitable abatement company.
