For nearly thirty years Balestrieri Environmental & Development, Inc. has been self-performing turn-key environmental building renovation and demolition services. During this time we have developed processes and procedures for customized solutions to our client’s needs.

Construction is hard – unlike our competition we can offer multi-disciplined environmental management including these additional services:

HVAC Duct Cleaning and Demolition Services

Prior to demolition of ductwork, precautions should be taken to ensure that your indoor air quality is not impacted by the release of contaminants or particulate. When managing suspected hazardous materials within a facility, it’s important to include proper commercial duct cleaning as part of the overall remediation. Dust and moisture can create an ideal environment for mold growth, trapping allergens, airborne bacteria and other particulates that could compromise the health and safety of building occupants.

Dust Particulate Containment

Our expert installation of dust particulate containments allows for all surround work to continue. These enclosures can be constructed to service a variety of purposes. They can be free-standing, moveable or ceiling supported and can be flam-retardant, anti-static, double- or privacy-walled – as well as being extremely durable.

Special options such as negative air pressure and HEPA filtered exhausting and ventilation systems can also be accommodated.

Encapsulation Services

Encapsulation involves covering the asbestos with performance coating that predominantly:

  • Protects and repairs any damaged asbestos and seals any exposed, raw asbestos edges
  • Increases the useful life of the material
  • Reduces any fiber release through general degradation
  • Protects against accidental knicks and scrapes
  • Improves the overall appearance of the material

Freon Removal

Freon is a type of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) used as a refrigerant in commercial and industrial applications. Our team has decades of professional experience in handling, removing and disposing of refrigerants in a safe, effective and efficient manner.

Mechanical and Building Insulation Removal

Balestrieri is routinely contracted to remove existing non-asbestos mechanical and building insulation during renovation activities in existing buildings during the selective interior demolition process. This may include loose fill attic and wall insulation removal and re-insulation of these materials.

President

Kenneth R. Balestrieri

As President of Balestrieri Environmental & Development, Inc., Ken is responsible for the day-to-day operations of our firm. Ken has been in the environmental industry since 1986, and has seen the issues involving this industry change rapidly. Realizing the growing need for quality environmental contractors led to the founding of Balestrieri Environmental & Development, Inc. in 1992.

Mr. Balestrieri holds certification as an Asbestos Inspector, Asbestos Project Designer, Asbestos Supervisor, and Lead Supervisor in the State of Wisconsin; and Asbestos Professional in the State of Illinois. Ken is also a Supervisor/Contractor and Asbestos Inspector with the State of Michigan and an Asbestos Supervisor in Minnesota and North Dakota.

Mr. Balestrieri graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in May of 1985 with a Bachelor of Science degree from the College of Natural Resources, majoring in Soil Science and Chemistry. Since graduating, Ken has continued an ongoing relationship between Balestrieri Environmental and UW-Stevens Point.

Recently, he accepted a nomination for one of two vacant seats on the UW-Stevens Point College of Natural Resources (CNR) Advisory Board and attended his first meetings on May 1, 2015 and September 6, 2015. The Dean of the CNR, Christine Thomas, personally invited Ken after his nomination was suggested by the Dean’s Council and unanimously supported by the board. As a CNR alumnus, Ken is very excited about this new opportunity to interact with members and faculty of the CNR and DNR to engage in continuing to build a tradition of excellence. He looks forward to sharing his wide range of knowledge and experience to help the College reach its highest potential.

Ken’s professional goals include networking to build a strong team at Balestrieri that works in harmony with clients, subcontractors, vendors, and the environment.

Ken’s personal goal is to raise a fun-loving, goal-oriented family. Ken enjoys taking his children, as well as clients and vendors, on interesting hunting and skiing trips throughout North America.
