Factory Asbestos Removal

Safeline Environmental, the west midlands based national asbestos removal specialists, recently completed a factory asbestos removal project in Birmingham. Our clients, a very famous aviation parts manufacturer based in Birmingham, required us to make safe their entire factory roof.

They had had several quotes from both asbestos specialists and building contractors for options such as removal and replacement of the entire roof (which on speaking with them was almost as much as a new building would have cost) to boxing in the roof with a suspended ceiling, again not really an option for the type of manufacture that they do…

Safeline Environmental decided to solve the factory asbestos removal problem with a method called encapsulation. This method is a very cost-effective process that will coat the asbestos product (in this case ACM roofing boards) with covering that encapsulates the material and therefore stops any potential asbestos release into the atmosphere.

This method of asbestos control is an extremely reliable technique when the surface to be encapsulated is of low likelihood to be penetrated or damaged, through the normal operations conducted in the building (regular readers will remember we have used this method before in boiler rooms).

Our clients brief insisted that we worked around the factory’s day to day operations, ensuring no loss of production days. This involved our project managers creating a program of works to complement the work carried out by the factory. The main reason Safeline won this contract was because of our flexible approach and cost-effective solution to the needs of the clients and their business.

If you have a factory asbestos removal project coming up, and you would like Safeline Environmental to suggest out of the box thinking whilst delivering cost-effective and time-critical solutions just drop us a line here using our contact forms and one of the team will get back to you.
