Situation No. 2A Intact Removal or Demolition By Third Party Buyer, ACM less than 10 Square Feet or 16 Linear Feet

These instructions apply when building owner declines to retain it. MoDOT then takes possession of the building improvement with intentions to resell it. The district right of way manager requests, through district design, an inspection of the building improvement, stipulating that non-destructive sampling methods be employed. If inspection and sampling reveal that:

  1. ACM is not present or consists of less than 10 square feet, or 16 linear feet, friable or non-friable Category II ACM.

Situation No. 2B Intact Removal By Third-Party Buyer, ACM Present in Quantity at, or above, 10 Square Feet or 16 Linear Feet

These instructions apply when building owner declines to retain it. MoDOT then takes possession of the building improvement with intentions to resell it. The district right of way manager requests, through district design, an inspection of the building improvement, stipulating that non-destructive sampling methods be employed. Also, there should be no apparent reason why the building improvement cannot be removed intact. If inspection and sampling reveal that:

  1. ACM is present in quantity equal to or greater than 10 square feet, or 16 linear feet, of friable or non-friable Category II ACM.
  2. The building improvement is offered for sale.
  3. The sales agreement shall include the appropriate disclaimer regarding ACM, use Form 236.9.1.1.
