Hintons have extensive experience in removing and encapsulating asbestos at commercial premises. We are often employed by construction companies where asbestos removal is required before the demolition/refurbishment of the building can begin.
Offices built or refurbished prior to 1999 may contain asbestos within them. It is the duty of the premises owner to have an asbestos survey undertaken and if required an asbestos management plan.
Asbestos can be removed while commercial sites are still in operation. With careful planning and communication, areas can be isolated and access managed, avoiding any dangers to the health and safety of the staff.
For sites with an asbestos management plan, we can advise on how best to deal with asbestos located on site, designating areas requiring removal or others that require regular inspection or if in a poor condition we can repair then encapsulate which can often be a more affordable option.
