University has no plans to renovate asbestos-filled building

| Mar 22, 2013 | Mesothelioma/Asbestos-Related Illness |

As we have written about many times on this blog, exposure to asbestos is a frequent cause of a particular type of cancer known as mesothelioma. It can be contracted by people who have spent extended periods of time around asbestos, such as in a shipyard, or even by people who have a spouse or family member who could have brought home asbestos fibers on their clothes.

Despite public awareness of the dangers of asbestos, it remains in many older buildings around the United States. When the parts of an asbestos-laden building are renovated or removed, caution is taken to remove it safely and not contaminate the area. However, many people are still understandably nervous when it comes to pass.

Some people on the campus at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas have these concerns. The campus humanities building, which was completed in 1972, has asbestos underneath many of its floor tiles. As the building has aged, it has needed maintenance from time to time, including with its floor.

The long-term plan for the building is to replace it entirely. As a result, officials at the school don’t want to invest too much into renovating a building that will ultimately be razed. Staff members in charge of maintaining the building say that care is taken whenever an area known to contain asbestos is being worked on and that faculty and students are not at risk. However, most people on campus will probably be able to relax more once the entire building is gone.
