Before any works can begin, a thorough asbestos survey is carried out. Samples of materials are taken from various locations within the buildings to determine the quantity and type of asbestos materials present.
This survey is essential so that safe methods of working can be developed when removing the asbestos materials. The asbestos materials inside and outside the buildings will be removed in strict accordance with the Asbestos at Work Regulations and under notification to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Mast climbers will be used to remove all external asbestos materials. All asbestos containing materials are safely removed from site and taken to a secure licenced waste facility for disposal.
