Open house tomorrow

It's now safe for folks to walk through the hotel without face masks and haz-mat suits on. The asbestos abatement process is complete! Now, we have a slight lull before the demolition teams come in, which means a great chance to open the building for informal tours.

Tomorrow, between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m., the loading dock doors will be open and any curious NOLS folk in town can swing on through the hotel for an in-progress view of the renovation (no hard hats required)! NOLS Rocky Mountain Facilities Project Manager John Stoddard will be on hand to answer any questions.

Breathe easy

Asbestos_door2This week has seen the continued removal of asbestos-containing materials (ACM's) from the Noble. ACM's are found in the hotel's flooring; specifically, in the sheet vinyl, vinyl tile, and cove. The highly regulated removal process is designed so that airborne asbestos fibers (the most dangerous to human lung tissue) are sucked into a negative air machine, or NAM (essentially, a vaccuum).

Asbestos_lobbyThe materials are then packaged up and transported to either Fremont County Solid Waste Landfill or a sanitary landfill in Colorado, depending on whether the material contains airborne asebestos or not.
Although this process has the Noble resembling a meth lab for the time being, it should be wrapped up in another week or so. Stay tuned!

Lander's "grand old lady" gets some press

K2 News, the Casper Star-Tribune, and the Lander Journal were all present at last Thursday's groundbreaking ceremony. Lander Mayor Mick Wolfe and representatives from Groathouse construction aided NOLS' John Gans, Pip Coe, Deborah Nunnick, Dave Glenn and Fred Kleisner in lowering the sign over the Third Street entrance.

After lowering the sign, Dave was interviewed by K2 news inside the hotel. An article appeared in Friday's Casper Star-Tribune as well.
