Including management and consulting fees and other costs associated with the projects, the total cost of the CCB renovation and asbestos abatement stands at approximately $4.8 million.
The CCB renovation work is expected to start later in the spring once renovation of the City owned building at 200 East Berry is finished and offices have relocated. The abatement of asbestos-containing materials will involve areas of the CCB directly affected by the renovation project. Those materials include floor tile and adhesive, transite wall panels, fireproofing material and thermal system insulation.
