JUNEAU, AK — Despite several rounds of remediation over the past several decades, the state Department of Labor building in Juneau continues to be plagued by mold and air quality issues, which the state must pay for, according to KTOO News.

The state still has not awarded a new lease to the building''s owners but the cost of improvements will be amortized over the first five years of the agreement, the article stated.

"They''ve told us previously and included in their offer some replacement of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, including the rooftop air handling units, the heating units and ducting," said State Chief Procurement Officer Vern Jones.

"For the remediation of mold — they''re going to basically remove the sheet rock and the inside surfaces of the walls and remediate where necessary there," Jones added.
