If you are considering or require an asbestos survey it's only right that you satisfy yourself the people you are entrusting to deal with a material that can cause cancer, knows what they are doing and keep everyone safe.

A Brief History (including qualification certificates)

We started in 1987 when I was director of an insulation company and we were constantly asked if we also removed asbestos, we knew about asbestos because of the insulation business, but never got involved in the specialist removal.

After much investment in equipment, training courses, correspondence with the HSE, after a lengthy competence assessment by an HSE inspector, we obtained a provisional asbestos removal license. I qualified as an asbestos removal supervisor in 1989 and completed the annual refresher training each year.

In 2000 I obtained the NEBOSH National General Certificate In Occupational Safety and Health

In 2002 I qualified as an asbestos surveyor  with the P402 course.

Asbestos Removal and Survey Experience

Over the years we have removed asbestos from a wide variety of locations including, the leg of an oil rig!, the engine room of a cruise ship, WW2 gun emplacements, stately homes, refineries, chemical plant, ferries, office blocks, factories, hospitals, care homes, banks, shops, houses of all shapes and sizes, underground tunnels and trenches, trains, power stations, etc etc.

We continued to renew our license (now a 3 year full license one of only 700 in the country!) over the years until 2010 when the company was split from the insulation side of the business.

I have continued with the asbestos survey part of the business, offering an unbiased assessment of asbestos in buildings, I don't have an associate or 'sister' company that carry out asbestos removals, the industry is full of experts that are quick to recommend asbestos removal, in order to pass on the work to their 'in house' removal company, it is essentially a conflict of interest at the expense of people's anxiety and fears. I can provide independent competitive quotes if asbestos removal is the only option.

Some Of Our Clients

All our clients are important to us, apart from providing a commercial service, I am always ready to patiently reassure people, who are concerned or anxious about asbestos affecting their lives.

We have been privileged to work for some major clients and explore interesting places, some of those include; English Heritage (various properties), P&O Ferries, Duchy of Cornwall (farms and cottages), The Landscape Trust, KCC, Thanet District Council, Dover District Council, Shepway District Council (all facilities) Saga Cruises (ships), Fred Olsen (oil rig), Pfizer (large pharmaceutical site), various NHS Trusts, HMRC (marine), as well as the standard properties, offices, shops, garages, care homes. hotels, industrial units and factories, farms and storage facilities, pumping stations and isolated plant rooms, schools and youth centres, nightclubs and cinemas, houses, bungalows garages and sheds, communal (common) areas of flats and many more clients, including a nice old lady who made me a lovely cup of tea!.

So you can see, the combination of the formal training, which includes the obtaining of the asbestos license, that required a huge amount of working knowledge of asbestos on it's own, together with the wide range of experience in both the removal of asbestos in accordance with our license conditions and the surveying of almost every type of building and plant that exists, we believe we have the expertise to assist any client whatever their requirements, at a surprisingly low cost.

Call Jeremy, our asbestos 'anorak' and be pleasantly surprised.
