Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Asbestos still present in building at University of Florida

Workers at the University of Florida removed thousands of square feet of coating contaminated with asbestos over the summer, a project that had to be completed prior to the reconstruction of the Colonnade.

According to reports, at least 9,050 square feet of asbestos coating was discovered by inspectors that needed to be removed before workers started the demolition and rehabilitation on the premises. UF Vice President Curtis Reynolds said they made a conscious effort to remove the asbestos in their premises to prevent students, faculty, and staff from being exposed to the substance.

Asbestos can be found in many old buildings due to its cost-effectiveness and durability.
