The Environmental Consultant will oversee an abatement activity which will remove floor tile and mastic from breezeways, elevator lobbies and student apartments, as well as, pipe and fitting cover in the penthouse fan rooms, co-mingled storage, and mechanical spaces. Although this building falls under guidelines for Public and Commercial Buildings, it will be partially occupied during the abasement activities. The more stringent IDPH School Regulations and University guidelines will apply. The project is expected to commence in May 2010, and to be completed no later than the end of August 2012. The total budget for the project abatement is approximately $500,000.
