Lincoln Square Abatement and Demolition Project

Information and Time Line

  • A limited Pre-demolition Asbestos Inspection Report was completed by EE&G on February 10th, 2012, and was revised March 9, 2012.  the updated report identified the following materials as Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM): black floor tile mastic, black cove base mastic, gray interior stucco material coating on interior walls and ceilings, pink wall texture material, white sink coating, and roofing materials.  The updated report noted that the gray interior stucco material is likely to become friable during demolition and therefore considered regulated ACM.  Confirmatory sampling was conducted in January 2013 by Greenfield Environmental which documented that asbestos containing stucco material was located in the interior walls and ceilings.
