Welcome to Stanford's asbestos building survey information
system. Information on asbestos-containing materials in Stanford
buildings is summarized in a searchable database organized by building
and presented in a tabular format for ease of printing. You can
search the database using either a building's name or its assigned
Quad-Building number. However, use the Quad-Building number when
possible as some building names may change over time. Visit the
Facilities Operations Maps & Records Web Site (http://maps.stanford.edu/)
if you need more information on building names or Quad-Building
You must use a computer with a campus (IP) address
to access the database. Survey data for all of Stanford's nearly
800 buildings may not be available and new survey or abatement information
will be added as it is received.
The information contained in the database is intended
to provide an overview of the types and locations of asbestos-containing
materials in Stanford buildings. Use of this information does
not replace, supercede or nullify the requirement for an additional
site evaluation by EH&S prior to any renovation, demolition or maintenance
activity that disturbs building materials.
The database table format consists of four columns
that are labeled and defined as follows:
Building System & Material Type:
Identifies the type of suspect material and the building
system with which it is associated, e.g., floors, walls, pipes,
Identifies specific or general areas of the building
where the material has been observed.
Provides additional pertinent information related
to the material
Places the material into one of four categories based
on occurrence and asbestos content. These categories are further
defined as follows:
1. Yes = This type of material is present and known to contain
asbestos through testing, product information or other means.
2. No = This type of material is either not present or, if present,
is known to be asbestos-free through testing, building age or
3. Presumed = This type of material is present but has not been
tested and therefore is presumed to contain asbestos until testing
4. Unknown = This type of material has not been observed but
may be present in hidden locations and, if encountered, should
be presumed to contain asbestos until testing by EH&S proves otherwise.
