News headlines News headlines 1 July 2018 18:06:37 New report: RTE investigates the possibility of asbestos being found in an apartment building article A report into the potential for asbestos found in the construction of an apartment block in north Cork city has been presented to the council.
The report, published by RTE on Monday, said the asbestos found on the building in Bayside Street in the Cork City suburb of Wicklow was likely to have come from asbestos fibre and did not pose a risk to the occupants of the building.
The project was approved by Cork City Council in November last year.
The city’s Environment Agency said in a statement the report was “the result of an ongoing investigation” into asbestos in the area, where the company building the building is owned by a company which owns other building materials and construction materials.
The council said the report did not find any evidence of an unsafe condition of the site.
The building’s owner said the company had been given permission to use the building as part of a larger scheme.
“We have been given approval to use it as part a larger building project that is currently under construction in Wicklow.
We have not yet completed that project, however, we will continue to monitor the project and will work with the council as it continues to assess the situation,” said a spokesman for the company.
The Environmental Agency is also investigating the condition of a number of other buildings in the same area, including two flats.
The agency said a number would be taken into consideration for remediation work in a phased manner.
“The assessment will be carried out as part the ongoing environmental remediation process and the relevant environmental impact assessment process,” the spokesman said.
He said it was important to note that this work had been undertaken to protect the environment.
