Incorrect, they acknowledged water entry from the broken windows and the roof.

You on the other hand fail to mention that "microbial growth was observed throughout the complex and was noticed by olfactory perception as well as visually". Lead paint is found in paint in several areas and is highly concentrated in window caulkings at Sanford.

Asbestos floor coverings, ceiling tiles, heat shields and counter tops are found in a number of areas, especially in the lower levels and the boiler room. The largest asbestos issue is with the piping used to conduct water through the heating system. The asbestos pipe wrap is in poor condition where it is visible and likely in similar condition where it is not visible behind finished walls and ceilings. In many ways it is the heating system that dooms the building as it is literally covered in asbestos and it requires a crew to operate and maintain. It is a case of damned if you do damned if you don't. Rip it and the asbestos out and face huge expense, maintain it and face huge operating costs.
