City of Rochester

News Release

(September 2, 2009) - Cambria Contracting Inc. will begin asbestos abatement work on floors 12, 13 and 14 of the Midtown Tower on Friday, Sept. 4. These areas represent an isolated portion of the building which will not impact the public. A community briefing on the abatement process will be held in the near future before work proceeds to the common areas of the project. Other preparation progress at the site so far includes demolition and debris removal from the B. Forman Building, as well as at other interior stores in the plaza. In addition, the restaurant and bar areas on the Tower’s 14th floor have been gutted and project headquarters have been established at 45 Euclid St.      

Cambria has selected two subcontractors to perform abatement work on the Seneca and McCurdy buildings, Rochester-based Marcor Remediation, Inc. and Bristol Environmental Inc. out of Bristol, PA. A minimum of fifty percent of the workers (including workers from all subcontractors) are required to be local hires, either through the Laborer’s Local 435 or job interviews conducted at the project headquarters site
