Asbestos Removal within Public Buildings

We work within many public sectors including schools, supermarkets, offices, hospitals & factories. When working with these sectors we are incredibly careful to not disrupt any members of the public, and plan each job specific to the location and client needs.

For public buildings, our work process has to be reactive to the site we are based within. For many cases the building still has to be fully operational; therefore, our staff force has to ensure as little disruption as possible and we also take care to not cause noise pollution or unnecessary mess on our sites.

We can plan works around the opening hours of said public place, and we undergo weekend and night shift work when required by our clients. As our client we understand you may have particular deadlines and we pride ourselves in ensuring the job is done to the highest standard within a suitable timescale. A large job we have recently done was in Dundee for the Tesco Head Offices, and we often carry out work in shops & supermarkets during closing hours so not to affect their business.

In the past we have faced many challenges, including removing asbestos within a hospital above a live maternity ward, for more about that job please click here. We also carry out many works within school holiday times and this is our busiest time of year, so please get in touch as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment! To see examples of jobs carried out within a school in a holiday or half term, please click here.

We work with local councils to maintain their properties, and this is anything from their offices to tenant’s properties, schools & hospitals. On all occasions we liase with the client and provide all works to suit their needs and we take on both planned works and emergency reactive works that may be a danger to the general public, such as a burst water mains that exposes asbestos materials. We continue to provide both of these services and are always on hand to take a proactive service to ensure the safety of all involved.

Our team treat all sites with respect, and each surface is protected and thoroughly cleaned after the job has been done so it is like we have not been there! If parts of the building still need to be accessed that is not an issue and can be discussed during the planning stage, as we are aware staff members may still need to use the building.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Q: Why do some works have to be notified to the HSE?

In order to protect all members of the public from any unnecessary asbestos fibre exposure, the HSE requires certain types of works to be notified to them at least 14 days in advance in order to regulate and control the removal procedures. These types of works include certain fibres and ACM’s, and these works may only be done by licensed contractors.

Q: Why is asbestos hazardous to my health?

The fibres of the asbestos materials are long, thin strands that are very small. When inhaled, these fibres latch on to your lungs and organs and when built up over time can cause Asbestosis or Mesothelioma, both fatal and incurable diseases.

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.
