Asbestos in soil

 

Asbestos was widely used for many decades throughout the UK as a durable, fireproof and cost-effective material. Unintentional exposure to asbestos continues in the UK within the construction sector and the numbers of deaths from asbestos-related diseases in the UK has risen in recent years.

Poor disposal practices, demolition and other anthropogenic processes have resulted in asbestos often being present in the ground, particularly in brownfield schemes.

Dunton has been involved in numerous schemes where asbestos has been identified. Our understanding of the complexities of current UK guidance allows us to deliver a pragmatic management approach designed to help you find significant costs savings whilst achieving construction best practice.
