Asbestos Removal in Demolition & Construction

One of the most regular services we offer is the removal of asbestos for our clients before demolition or construction works commence. This allows our clients to rest assured that their building works are completely safe and any traces of asbestos have been removed before other trades are on site.

Our main clients and most regular works are for both demolition and construction firms, and we offer a full service to remove all asbestos within a building prior to their works commence. We also offer a ‘soft-stripping’ service, which is removing all extra internal cavities of the building in preparation of or after our specialist service takes place.

In order for buildings with asbestos present to be demolished or refurbished to a high standard, it must all be fully safe and this is proven when it is passed off by a UKAS Accredited Analyst Company and a clean air certificate issued.

All asbestos fibres must be fully removed to ensure the health & safety of all workers & members of the public within the area. We follow strict HSE guidelines and this is the upmost importance for us as a company to provide a safe and reliable service with no corners cut. Each job is carried out to the same high standard no matter what our client’s plans are within sites after our works have been done.

These types of jobs are regularly attached to higher potential risks as we often work alongside other trades when working, and this is always an important consideration when planning works.

Our previous works have included large development schemes for old buildings to be fully refurbished into new residential properties. This is one of our most common services, and to read more about an example of a recent large project within Sheffield please click here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the most common questions we get asked are answered below for you! For further information give us a...

Q: How long will it take for you to remove asbestos?

Each case is treated as an individual job, so the delivery time is dependant upon many factors. Our Contracts Managers will advise you of this at the quotation point. If the works are notifiable to the HSE, they will be subject to a minimum 14 day notification period, plus our in-house preparation.

Q: What should I do if I find asbestos?

Before removals can take place, the type of asbestos needs to be identified with an independent surveyor to determine the exact properties. Never attempt to remove it yourself, and call a professional such as ourselves. If it is in bad condition it may be treated as an urgent matter.

Q: How many types of asbestos are there?

Asbestos has two sub-categories; Serpentine and Amphibole, defined by their difference in fibre qualities. In the Serpentine category is Chrysotile (also known as White asbestos) with S-shaped fibres. In the Amphibole category is; Crocidolite (Blue asbestos), Amosite (Brown asbestos) and also lesser-known Anthophyllite, Tremolite and Actinolite, all with straight fibres.
