Note: Should possible asbestos contamination occur during the project, the contractor would stop immediately and
contact Ray Francis at 715-836-5817. The university will then be responsible for testing the sub-floor material for
asbestos content. If tests show that there is not hazardous asbestos content, the contractor shall be notified and will
resume the project as per the contract. Should asbestos be found in the sub-floor and contamination is not avoidable the
university will take the responsibility for the removal and disposal from that point. The contractor will be notified when
the project can continue. The university shall only be charged for preparation costs up to the point that the project was
stopped.
