Asbestos was used extensively as a building material in Britain in the 20th century. Although some of this material has been removed over the years, there are many thousands of tonnes of asbestos still present in buildings.
When asbestos is found, it is the contractor’s statutory duty to ensure that the problem is dealt with swiftly and effectively to prevent exposure to their workforce and the public.
Breathing in asbestos fibres can lead to extremely serious asbestos related diseases such as lung cancer or asbestosis.
Asbestos can also cause severe, unexpected delays to construction schedules, which is why Greater London Demolition has a network of partners to offer a comprehensive service to access, analyse and rectify the situation
Greater London Demolition works with qualified asbestos surveyors. This capability brings significant advantages to our clients both when carrying out stand-alone surveys and when undertaking asbestos removal and demolition works.
