Asbestos Removal

Safe, clean and responsible removal of asbestos using licenced contractors.

If you are responsible for the demolition of a house, residential block of flats garages, factory or commercial property it is important that you are aware of your obligations under Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

Blue and brown asbestos materials were banned in 1985 with white asbestos (Chrysotile) outlawed in 1999.

Asbestos removal is a heavily regulated industry governed by the HSE. Any asbestos disturbance or removal must be undertaken by a licensed contractor and documented through every step of the process from works set up, to removal, transportation and disposal.
