Thanks to a US senator, the General Services Administration is going to be looking into conditions at the Sam M. Gibbons Federal Courthouse. Maintenance work has been scheduled but the progress appears to have halted.
Dodging moldy buckets set out to collect rainwater, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson toured the mold and mildew infested Federal Courthouse built by Clark Construction Group Contractors. Built at a cost of 64.5 million, the building has been plagued with a leaking roof and plumbing issues ever since.
The courthouse is a hot spot for respiratory illness, and adult onset asthma– in other words, suffering from “sick building syndrome”. Seventeen stories worth of mold-affected employees and visitors are looking to hold someone accountable for illness which leaves them barely able to function.
