Review Document

The Borough of Conshohocken is seeking proposals from qualified professional environmental testing firms to provide the Borough’s Housing Rehabilitation Program with lead paint risk assessments, lead paint clearance testing, and radon testing at single-family, owner-occupied properties participating in the Program.

The Borough of Conshohocken is committed to the provision and preservation of safe, affordable housing for its residents, and the maintenance of the Borough’s existing housing stock. Using HUD funds administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, Conshohocken provides rehabilitation services for low and moderate-income, single-family, owner-occupied properties. Services involve construction activities to bring a property into compliance with local building codes and State established housing quality standards. Property rehabilitation is subject to HUD’s Lead-Based Paint Regulations, which require the reduction of any existing lead-based paint hazards in participating residences. Short-term radon testing is required to determine if remediation measures are required. It is anticipated that four (4) to six (6) properties per year will require testing.

The Borough will contract with an environmental testing firm (the Consultant) to provide lead-based paint (LBP) risk assessments (including XRF testing of painted surfaces); clearance testing of all properties participating in the Rehabilitation Program, which were constructed prior to 1978; and short-term radon testing of all properties.

Copies of the request for proposals are available at Conshohocken Borough Hall, 400 Fayette Street, Suite 200, Conshohocken, PA 19428 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The RFP is also available on the Borough website and can be viewed at the link below.
