Asbestos Contamination Necessitates $1.5 Million Demolition at University of Colorado

Mon, 23 Apr 2012 10:15:39 EST

After a health audit exposed high levels of asbestos in the College Inn building, which was used as an overflow dormitory to house students on the University of Colorado campus, the school has decided to demolish the building.

The College Inn was constructed in 1964, when it was common practice to use construction materials containing asbestos. Because of its insulating and heat-resistant properties, asbestos was once a popular material in the construction industry and was used in piping, floor tiles, cement, paint, and insulation—to name just a few.

Because of the health risks linked to asbestos exposure, and the high costs associated with asbestos abatement, university officials decided to demolish the building. The demolition is scheduled for the summer of 2013 and is estimated to cost $1.5 million. The building will be vacant until the scheduled demolition next summer.

Asbestos becomes dangerous after building materials begin to break down, and the asbestos fibers become airborne. Inhalation of asbestos fibers can lead to the development of potentially fatal respiratory cancers, such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. Symptoms may take up to fifty years to present themselves after the initial exposure to asbestos fibers.

'EMSL laboratories have been performing analysis on suspect building materials since 1981,' says Ed Cahill, Vice President of EMSL's Asbestos Division. 'Each of our 31 locations is equipped and accredited to test for the presence of asbestos in the air, soil, water, or bulk building materials.'
