Asbestos was widely used for many decades throughout the UK as a durable, fire-proof 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. As a result of poor demolition practices, asbestos fibres are commonly found in soils on brownfield sites.
At Dunton Environmental we understand the complexities of current UK asbestos guidance and can assist you through the investigation, assessment and management of asbestos contaminated soils. Our aim is to help you find significant cost and programme savings whilst achieving construction best practice.
