Asbestos abatement

THOMASVILLE — A popular building material of the past is among the obstacles encountered in converting the top two floors of the Thomasville federal building for use by the Thomasville City School System.

The 404 N. Broad St. structure, built in the early 1960s, has asbestos in floors, ceilings and around some pipes and ductwork.

“It was the building material of choice,” said Dr. Daniel Oldham, city school system director of finance.

Abatement of the material will cost $149,000, the low bid for the work.

Asbestos abatement will be done at night, with no interruption or contamination to the post office on the first floor.

The building was turned over to the school system by the federal government at no cost.

The post office will rent space from the school system for $7,500 a month.
