Asbestos Removal in Schools, Colleges and Universities

We have vast experience of working within the education sector and know that it is paramount to work to tight deadlines between term-times, in order to ensure that asbestos removal work doesn't interfere with pupils study time.

Many schools that were built before the year 2000 will likely have asbestos within them. Some of the common areas where asbestos is found in the education sector are - 

  • The thermal insulation that is found on boilers and pipes.
  • Sprayed on asbestos, which is commonly used for fire protection and insulation.
  • Asbestos-insulating board (AIB) which is used as insulation and also protection against fire.
  • Floor and ceiling tiles.
  • Asbestos cement sheets that can be used for roofing.
