Project Management of Asbestos Removal

An asbestos remediation and removal project manager can bring significant value in ensuring that the work is done in the best way for your property and business and in a considerate manner, minimising disruption and risk of exposure for all parties.

This removes you, the client, from coordinating the remedial, removal, or demolition works from the tender stage to completion and dealing with day-to-day issues while the work is undertaken.

Remedial Work or Demolition of Sites Containing Asbestos

Remedial work or demolition may be necessary when dealing with sites containing asbestos. In cases where the asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are in good condition and not likely to be disturbed, remedial work may be the best option to manage the risk of exposure. However, if the ACMs are damaged or deteriorating, it may be necessary to demolish the site to prevent further contamination and exposure. 

Both options require careful planning, specialised equipment, and trained professionals to ensure the safe and proper removal and disposal of the ACMs.

Our Asbestos Removal Management Services

Shortlisting of Suitable Contractors

We begin by identifying potentially suitable contractors based on the type of work. There are various ways to remove asbestos, contain it or demolish a site. Choosing the correct contractor is crucial to ensure the asbestos removal control plan is carried out correctly.

Tender
Management

The next step in your asbestos removal plan is to produce and submit a tender document. This can be a time-consuming and confusing task. Luckily, we are experienced in this area. We prepare your documents and manage the submission and evaluation process.

Contract Management

We also deal with contract management to ensure safe asbestos removal after choosing a suitable contractor and asbestos analyst. This involves creating contract documentation that outlines the scope of work and safety protocols to be followed.

Overseeing the Work

We have NEBOSH-qualified Health and Safety experts who are well-versed in all aspects of asbestos. They will be running the project on your behalf. Their expertise ensures that we execute the project with utmost safety and compliance with the regulations.

Communication

We ensure the safe management of asbestos by providing customised plans. Collaborating with our clients, we use meetings and written communication to keep everything on track. Our team is equipped to handle any challenges that may arise.

Compliance

We keep you informed about our asbestos removal plans and advise you on your duties to ensure the successful fulfilment of the project and what is being done to fulfil it. We guarantee a safe and effective asbestos control plan by informing you of the work done.

We have managed projects up to £800k +VAT.

We don’t use freelancers, we use committed companies that we have strong relationships with.

Why Choose Environmental Inspection for Your Asbestos Removal Plan

At Environmental Inspection, we believe that having a widely qualified, highly experienced, objective project manager will make sure the project is completed on time, within budget, in line with current regulations, to the standard that would be expected and most importantly, without incident.

No Conflict of Interest

Going direct to a single contractor can produce conflicts of interest. If you are considering using a single contractor for your asbestos removal, ask yourself these questions:

  • How does their skillset match your specific requirements?  
  • What is their knowledge of the wider considerations? 
  • How seriously do they take regulations? 
  • What are your other options? 
  • How will they effectively manage the project? 
  • Do they understand asbestos and its management, beyond just the removal? 
  • How comprehensive will their survey be?

Effective Asbestos Management Plan from Start to Finish

Going direct to the asbestos analysts will get you valid results, but there are a range of potential issues that may arise as they too are not truly independent when managing the overall project. You may as well have effective, independent project management from the start.

Qualified Asbestos Removal Experts - Guaranteed

Asbestos remedial, removal, and demolition projects are a time-consuming, expensive, and high-liability exercise to undertake. As with any special project, specification, procurement and management of the works should be undertaken, or at least supervised, by an experienced, qualified expert.

Here are some more important questions to consider if you’re considering a single contractor or going directly to asbestos analysts:

  • Will you have a choice over who does the work? 
  • Will it be who you think it is? 
  • Will they be focussed on your needs? 
  • Will they minimise disruption to your business, by timing and carrying out the work according to your day-to-day operations? 
  • If the analyst is hiring the contractor (most likely), do you know what their selection criteria are?

Then there is the issue of ‘passing off’ the job afterwards (4 stage clearance), and declaring the site safe again. 

  • How impartially is this done? 
  • Will you be alerted to anything else that might need to be done? 

If you have ever known a building have repeated asbestos removal work done in the same place, then this is why. They have had contractors doing piecemeal work only, and not looking after the interests of the business owner and occupiers.

We Will Always Complete Your Plan to the Highest Standards

Having an independent project manager who is highly experienced with 4 stage clearances is important. They can double-check the work, so you know that it is done as per the specification and to the standards you expect.

And this is why you should choose Environmental Inspection for your asbestos removal management plan. 

What does an Asbestos Project Manager do?

When it comes to asbestos management, Environmental Inspection offers a range of services to meet the diverse needs of our clients. Most clients, whether in residential, commercial, or industrial settings, will require a comprehensive asbestos survey. 

Our surveys go beyond a simple visual inspection; they include thorough sampling and meticulous testing for any materials suspected of containing asbestos. Our meticulous approach ensures that every potential source of asbestos is identified and assessed.

Once an asbestos-containing material is identified, the next steps are crucial to ensure the safety and compliance of your property. Remedial work may be necessary to manage asbestos over the long term, or in more severe cases, total removal could be deemed essential for health and safety reasons. At this point, our specialised asbestos removal management plans come into play.

We understand that arranging and coordinating asbestos remedial, removal, or demolition works is a complex, time-consuming, and costly process. Moreover, it carries a high level of liability. Environmental Inspection takes on this responsibility to ensure that your asbestos-related projects are executed efficiently and per all regulations.

Managing asbestos projects is a specialised field and is the second most regulated industry in the UK. Environmental Inspection has a dedicated team of experts with a proven track record in successful project management. From initial project specifications to the final site completion works, we oversee every step of the process. Our attention to detail and commitment to regulatory compliance guarantee that your project is in safe hands.

Environmental Inspection prides itself on its ability to coordinate the work of various specialist contractors. We ensure that your unique needs and interests remain at the heart of every decision made during the project. Our approach goes beyond the immediate task at hand; we consider the broader implications for you, your property, and your business to minimise any disruptions and ensure a seamless project execution.

What to Expect from our Project Managers

Procurement and Tender Documents

Tendering of specialist services should be carefully done. The specification must be sufficiently detailed to ensure all responding companies have the same understanding of what they are dealing with and how it will be remediated.

Environmental Inspection can bring experience across the full project lifecycle, and as a site analysts on all kinds of project, to ensure you get the best job done, without over-paying.

Being fully qualified to advise on the best options from remediation for management, to total removal, or demolition, we will take into account many factors. This allows us to advise and engage, to provide a detailed specification for the works, and fully comply with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

The specification is extremely important. Contractors will know exactly what they are tendering for, how they will undertake the work, in which order, and any necessary site-specific requests.

Outcomes For You

Compliance

We will ensure that the whole project is managed in a sophisticated way that is compliant with the relevant legislation and regulations.

This includes completing the ASB5 notification to the HSE or local authority as required.

Smooth, stress-free process

It is crucial to have a dedicated expert involved in asbestos removal projects to ensure its smooth execution and successful completion.

Best contract management and supplier relations

It is vital to detail in contracts what is and isn’t included. We have seen cases in which clients expected e.g. a ceiling to be replaced after removing it but this was not specified. The contractor should of course be led by the contract.

    Asbestos Removal Management FAQs

    Planning permission for asbestos removal typically isn’t required. Instead, you need a licensed professional and compliance with regulations to ensure safe and legal removal.

    Asbestos removal involves a licensed professional. They isolate the area, wear protective gear, and use specialised equipment to extract and dispose of asbestos-containing materials safely.

    Asbestos removal is not a DIY task. It poses serious health risks. Only licensed professionals with the proper training, equipment, and certifications should handle asbestos removal.
