This week we welcome Michael Geyer of KERNTEC Industries in Bakersfield CA to discuss the use of heat in remediating residential and commercial buildings. Mr. Geyer has 30+ years of hands-on experience in construction, engineering, environmental and biological sciences…developing work, estimating project costs, negotiating contracts, managing staff, and executing assignments. Mr. Geyer has worked on thousands of tasks over the course of hundreds of projects, some exceeding $80-million in value.
Mr. Geyer is an expert in mitigating chemical-biological contaminants in buildings, conducting property conditions assessments, improving indoor air quality, mitigating vapor intrusion, characterizing landfill gas, and building off-grid homes. In addition to his years of industrial hygiene and environmental experience Michael has 15-years of construction experience working in the trades, building off-grid power systems, and supervising building projects. He has built hundreds of residential homes (tract developments, custom houses and remote ranch-style homes) and commercial buildings, and many special-use structures, e.g., theater, sport venue and schools.
His unique construction experience has been valued by developers/owners building on compromised property (e.g., Brownfields) with known chemical or biological hazards. He specializes in high-hazard construction efforts and those impacted with methane, hydrogen sulfide, VOCs, and biological contamination.
