Even if abatement work was done previously, it's best to err on the side of caution when demolishing a building where asbestos is known to have been. There is a good chance that there are at least trace amounts of asbestos in the dust. However, let's not catastrophize this aspect of the demo too much. No one is going to get cancer from short term exposure to small amounts of asbestos. There are plenty of other violations of due process and good governance here to get outraged about.
