Chris Frackiewicz is the founder of ACM Consulting Corporation. As Chief Executive Officer he is responsible for project and personnel management. To ensure client satisfaction, Mr. Frackiewicz personally manages each project with a “hands-on” approach by coordinating and monitoring the activities of all field personnel. He continually strives to improve the efficiency of all field operations by monitoring job cost and project progress.
He founded ACM Consulting
Corporation in 1995 after nine years of serving the environmental remediation
industry with highly trained and qualified work crews.
In the preparatory phases of a project he communicates with the building owner, occupants, the architect and or engineer, and regulatory agencies. He develops the project design, and prepares the work plan. During the execution phase he is responsible for planning and scheduling. He interacts with the union representative and third party hygienists.
In addition to environmental remediation projects, Mr. Frackiewicz (at the request of his clients) has also proven his ability to perform specialty contracting projects. These projects consist of work which his clients find too labor intensive to perform in-house or too difficult to perform utilizing additional subcontractors. These projects include but are not limited to the following types of work: lintel installation, fire stopping, core drilling and concrete cutting, installation of structural supports, shoring, needle shoring, in filling of openings in slabs, temporary protection and isolation of occupied areas, installation of insulation at mechanical systems and installation of spray-on fireproofing.
Central Terminal Building, La Guardia Airport, New York, NY – This was a complex project that required the terminal to remain operational and occupied while maintaining a low profile with minimal disruption to the airports daily operations. The responsibility of project design, the detailed phasing of the work schedule and the design of the scaffolding which encompassed the work area was executed through the teamwork comprised of the Asbestos Operations Field Supervisor of the Port Authority of NY & NJ, Shapiro Associates and the Port Authority of NY & NJ Redevelopment Program and Operations. The scope of work entailed interior demolition and the abatement of 128,000 sq ft. of asbestos containing spray-on fireproofing and construction of an elaborate 3 story decontamination unit on the runway giving accessibility to all work areas for a period of 18 months. The reapplication of spray-on fireproofing was also included in the scope of work on this project.
