Edwards Air Force Base:
Asbestos abatement performed by MEC, Inc. at the Space Shuttle lift station at Edwards Air Force Base, California.

The project consisted of extensive asbestos removal from piping associated with the structure. The customer, NASA, enforced strict performance requirements regarding safety and security in a very sensitive environment.
