Covington offers air pollution source and indoor air quality sampling capabilities, ambient monitoring and impact assessment expertise using standard dispersion modeling techniques. Once the particular problem has been identified and an appropriate solution determined, Covington can then offer services to design remediation plans, to implement the remediation plans, to access disposal sites, remove asbestos material and mold or to perform whatever other tasks may be necessary to help our clients comply with governmental regulations and manage potential liabilities.
Covington is the primary consultant at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport, MS for indoor air quality issues. Shortly after Hurricane Katrina, Covington assisted in getting the hospital back in operation by evaluating indoor air quality conditions, the presence of mold and effectiveness of building drying. Covington also played a key role in advising Memorial Hospital how to protect its patients and achieve the necessary steps to repair damage to the hospital.
After Hurricane Katrina, Covington provided initial damage evaluations of many large and small buildings in South Mississippi in the days following Hurricane Katrina. Among those were the Hancock Bank Corporate headquarters in Gulfport, all of the Hancock Bank branches in Mississippi, schools, churches, clinics, nursing home facilities and many more. Covington managed the remediation process of most of these facilities and played a major role in the recovery effort, and now assists in disaster planning exercises with some of the corporations that we assisted in 2005.
Covington routinely monitors and assesses indoor air quality at Memorial Hospital and other facilities, both public and privately owned, and advises on how to address indoor air quality issues.
