Asbestos Abatement

Whether you require the complete removal of asbestos containing materials from a site or the encapsulation of materials within a property, we can supply a service that fully complies with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

Licensed Asbestos Works

Asium will ensure that the appropriate asbestos remediation works are instructed for your project and we are able to provide a complete project management service for licensed works that may be required.

This covers the process from competitive tendering through to job completion and safe re-occupation of the premises. We will liaise with a number of Licensed Asbestos Removal Companies (LARC) on your behalf to provide this service and we can guarantee complete impartiality for our clients.

Notifiable Non-Licensed Asbestos Works

Notifiable non-licensed asbestos works must be notified to the HSE in advance of any works taking place and must include a written plan of works. This HSE notification form is known as an ASBNNLW1.

The type of work that this notification should cover can include:

  • Large scale removal of asbestos containing textured decorative coatings
  • Asbestos cement products (eg roof sheeting) where the material has been substantially damaged or broken up
  • Asbestos paper and cardboard products if not firmly bonded in a matrix

Non-Licensed Remediation Works

At Asium we offer a competitive non-licensed asbestos remediation service to our clients. The removal of these materials is considered lower risk but suitably qualified personnel must still conduct the works. Examples can include items such as:

  • Encapsulation and sealing-in work on asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) that are in good condition
  • Work involving asbestos-containing thermoplastic and vinyl floor tiles, bitumen roof felt, shingles, damp-proofing coatings, and mastics
  • Removal of asbestos cement products, such as roof sheeting and rainwater goods, provided the material is carefully handled/removed without breaking up

You must ensure that the contractor you use has a waste carriers licence, this information can be checked on the Environment Agency website– our waste carriers license CBDU284360.

Asium will dispose of the asbestos containing waste at a suitably located waste transfer station that accepts hazardous materials, and a waste consignment note shall be produced for your records.

“Thinking of taking the shed down at the bottom of the garden? But the asbestos is worrying you?”

Call us now for a quote and we’ll get you moving.

Reinstatement Works

The one thing that is forgotten about following the removal of an asbestos containing material is the fact that it will need replacing, as it has been an integral part of your building.

At Asium we will listen to your requirements and offer some making good options so that you still have a ceiling or indeed doors to secure the property after the works have taken place, or a modern alternative product to offer fire protection that the asbestos may have been used for in years gone by.

We will be happy to quote for the reinstatement of the materials that are removed, which can save you the extra worry of finding a trusted contractor and another set of contacts.

Trust us to manage your project from start to finish, whilst you relax and enjoy the finer things in life.

FAQs

Do all Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) need to be removed?

Only if they are likely to be disturbed or are in really poor condition, there could be a situation where encapsulation is a remedial option that is more beneficial for our clients.

Do you collect debris that has fallen to the ground?

Yes we do. Following positive identification from bulk sampling of the material, we can attend the property and remove the material, therefore preventing further fibre release into the atmosphere.

How can I dispose of asbestos cement debris that has been bagged up by my contractor?

We offer a collection service for these situations when a contractor has deemed themselves competent to remove the unlicensed ACM. The material should be removed as per the regulations and double bagged or wrapped in 1000 gauge polythene prior to pick up.

What is Encapsulation?

This is a process of applying a vapour barrier coating to an unsealed or damaged ACM. The application prevents fibre release and increases the lifespan of the material providing it is managed according to The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

What area do you cover?

We operate throughout London and the surrounding counties of Essex, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk.

Do you provide air testing during the removal process?

We will provide air monitoring as standard practice unless the process of removal in unlikely to exceed the control limits.

How is the asbestos waste disposed of safely?

The hazardous waste shall be disposed of at a, fully regulated, licensed waste transfer station that accepts asbestos containing waste.

What information do you need in order to provide a removal quotation?

For us to return a quotation, we shall need a copy of the latest Asbestos Management Survey or the Refurbishment/Demolition Survey reports. These documents shall give us identification of materials, location, and approximate amounts of each ACM. If these are unclear or we need to clarify a few points within them, we shall liaise with our clients to arrange a site visit where further questions can be addressed to secure the most accurate price for the suggested remedial works.

How long does the removal process take?

It all depends on the type and amount of ACM involved. Non-notifiable works could be actioned within a day, and licensed works will generally require 3 weeks lead time in order to produce and submit a plan of works to the HSE.

Do Asium provide the service of reinstatement following removal works?

If Asium Project Management are instructed to remove the asbestos from a building, we shall automatically offer the service of material reinstatement from plasterboard ceilings to brand new fire doors.
