About Encasement Guy

George C. Keefe, Encasement Guy is a sought after consultant, lecturer, author and writer of technical papers.  He has over 35 years experience in the coatings, painting, specialty contracting, indoor environmental remediation, risk management and specification writing industries. He  is considered one of the pioneers and leading experts on management-in-place as a primary alternative to removal and replacement of building components including hazardous materials.  He is CEO and Founder of the International Corporation, GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. (GEI), a pro-planet company with green coatings that help protect the environment while providing solar reflective, energy/money saving roofing, waterproofing and abating hazardous materials.

On March 11, 2011 the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant was damaged by the tsunami that resulted from the disastrous 8.9-magnitude Tohoku earthquake, emitting a large amount of radiation due to a hydrogen explosion. Encasement Guy was contacted, flown into Tokyo and asked to assemble a risk assessment team to evaluate the situation and present viable solutions. Him and his team met at one of the TEPCO facilities just outside the evacuation zone in Northern Japan where they did several demonstrations presenting products that would lock down and help contain the hazardous debris with Green coatings. The coatings from GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. that were presented would help minimize the potential future exposure and contain all the hazardous, radioactive debris. The product were approved and started being used.

Mr. Keefe originated and developed green encasement coating systems for application over asbestos and lead-based paint in the early 1990s because he often found himself on jobsites where there was an overreaction to asbestos, even though the useful building material was in good shape doing what it was originally intended to do.  He authored the book “Just Encase They Think You’re Stupid“, a guide for Managing Asbestos and Lead-Based Paint, and numerous technical papers on applications for encasement green coatings.

Encasement Guy’s services include:

  1. Project site assessments and recommendation on in-place-management of hazardous building materials, historic preservation and building/roofing repairs
  2. Consultancy on turning your building surfaces Green while saving time, energy and money
  3. Training contractors on proper installation of GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. products
  4. Lecture on the benefits of in-place-management
  5. Rejuvenating Historical Properties with Green Coatings

TESTIMONIALS

  • Many studies have shown that preservation is more cost-effective in saving energy and the environment than new construction. There is a great truth in the philosophy of economist Donovan Rypkema, who specializes in the economic revitalization of city centers and the development of historic preservation, “The Greenest Building is the One still Standing”. I will suggest it to all my classes.

  • "Your book is a great, informative read. My inner social worker gravitated to the staggering text not including pages 53 through 61. Clearly one solution to this archaic social problem is your company's product(s)."
    Christina M. Kelley - MSW (Masters in Social Work) - Operations Director
  • "I loved your book when I read it last year. I found it informative, insightful and best of all very, very humorous."
    Francis Keefe - Educator at UC
  • "Very informative book! I’m not an expert on green products but this book really made me to think /realize how important that green products are to SAVE the world including humans of course. It is easy to read for everyone. I would like to thank to the Author, Mr. Keefe for publishing such an educational book for us - sharing all the informative information and what is going on in reality within society."

  • "I Read the book and refer to it at times it is very informative and well written I should advertise it more and I will."

  • JUST ENCASE…… is one of the most informative and educational books I have read. It is certainly one of the few that I have read a second time. I feel that the double meaning of “Encase” is a clever one. The author has done a good deal of research and skilfully combined his findings with his own experience. Rather than frightens, the book enlightens one to the dangers and advantages of the use of Asbestos. It echoes the message in Silent Spring.. I met the author and was impressed with his style of humour which he incorporates well into the body of the novel. It would be folly to ignore the message that the author of “Just Encase They Think You’re Stupid” presents in clear and easy to read style.

  • This book is a history of the asbestos and lead abatement industry. George Keefe accurately describes the players involved and presents them in an entertaining way. He should know, he was there. The industry had and still has many contractors and consultants who have little or no ethical standards. He also points out that misinformation and scare tactics are used to promote work that is unnecessarily expensive and the lesser expensive options are not given to the clients. My company was fortunate to have George as an employee and now as a supplier of green products. He has always had the highest ethical standards.This book will assist the reader to be able to ask the right questions for practical solutions to abatement needs.
