Contractor destroys company’s heating/air conditioning system
Source: AXA XL Environmental
A GC removed lead-based paint from a commercial building. The contractor isolated the work areas with containment; however, the HVAC system was not disconnected. The dust generated from the lead removal operations clogged the heating coils of the HVAC system in the building. The contractor was liable for replacing the HVAC system and the associated disruption of business in the building.
