BOISE, Idaho (AP) The state has begun renovating the first building of the former HP Inc. campus in Boise as Idaho agencies prepare to start moving into the new office space later this year.
KTVB-TV reports workers are removing flooring embedded with asbestos from parts of the building that have been vacant for years.
Keith Reynolds, State Department of Administration deputy director said the asbestos issue was anticipated, and the removal is not delaying the state's schedule.
The state purchased the eight-building property covering about 200 acres for $110 million last year. An additional $29 million was budgeted for renovations and infrastructure work.
The Idaho State Tax Commission plans to move into the campus in the fall, and the state Industrial Commission is expected to follow.
