In Rochester, New York, Renaissance Square has been planned out but cannot be built until the buildings on its site are demolished. However, before they can be demolished, they must be tested for asbestos and may have to undergo abatement. So far 3 of the 20 buildings have been tested for asbestos.
Asbestos testing and abatement must occur in buildings that are slated for demolition. If there is asbestos in a building that is not properly dealt with, demolition can put people in great danger. Once asbestos becomes airborne it can easily find its way into the lungs, possibly causing long term health concerns like asbestosis and mesothelioma.
If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos, contact the New York mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-781-3955.
