In advance of modifying a cold room, Frank P Matthews (based in Tenbury Wells) appointed us to carry out the asbestos removal and disposal of asbestos cement ceiling sheets and wall panels so refurbishment could take place.
We set up an exclusion zone around the area we were working and commenced removal, using fibre suppressant and H type vacuums. Whilst removing the wall panels the supervisor on site noticed some cement shuttering underneath the floor that was thought might contain asbestos. The client was informed immediately, who instructed us to get a sample taken.
Whilst carrying on with the originally quoted work the sample was sent off for analysis and came back positive for asbestos. We informed the client, who was in a hurry to get their refurbishments finished and the get the building back to operational use. With some re-arrangement of our timetable we managed to complete the extra works alongside our originally contracted works, causing minimal disruption to our client’s schedule.
