SUNY Albany began as the Normal School in Albany in 1844. The school was renamed the New York State College for Teachers in 1914. In 1962, the school merged with the State University of New York system and was renamed the State University of New York at Albany. SUNY Albany currently has 18,000 students and three campuses.
SUNY Albany’s main campus is known as the Uptown Campus and was designed by Edward Durrell Stone. Most of the Uptown Campus’ buildings were built in the 1960s and 1970s. The Uptown Campus houses SUNY Albany’s athletic complex, a central Academic Podium area, and two of SUNY Albany’s main libraries.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at SUNY Albany are now being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer. Before the 1970s, asbestos fireproofing, joint compound, floor tiles, pipe covering, and gaskets were used in the building and maintenance of SUNY Albany. Asbestos joint compound was used to fill in the seams between sheets of dry wall. This dry mix was applied and sanded down, a process that caused asbestos fibers to be emitted into the air. Pipes, valves, boilers, and pumps were also coated in asbestos insulation that was repaired and replaced during maintenance procedures. Asbestos acoustic plaster was also applied to ceilings and walls in SUNY Albany dormitories.
