Asbestos surveys in Gateshead, Newcastle, Sunderland and County Durham
Lucion Head Office is situated in Gateshead, North East England. We have been based here since the business was established in 2002 by Dr Patrick Morton and Charles Pickles, (right) both professionals highly experienced in the asbestos industry. The local asbestos surveyors at our Northern England branch have worked on many large scale projects in the area and are the asbestos consultants for many of the UK’s largest companies. As a well established brand, the our Northern England team has easy access across the North, with its centrally located office in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, just off the A1. Our team’s knowledge of the area means we can be with on site promptly.
Regional Manager Brendan Wardle is responsible for the high quality service provided by our site teams. We have over 20 technically experienced and BOHS P402 / BOHS P403 and P404 qualified asbestos surveyors and analysts based at our Gateshead office. Many of these personnel also hold the BOHS P405 and IOSH Managing Safely qualifications, making sure that you are in safe hands throughout your asbestos management project.
Our Gateshead office is home to one of our three training facilities, where we carry out UKATA Category A Asbestos Awareness Training and BOHS Proficiency Module Courses and Examinations. These courses are available year round and for more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that an interactive training calendar is currently being developed and will be up and running in early 2013.
We also pride ourselves on our commitment to lowering our carbon footprint. Our Gateshead office, laboratory and training centre have all had an air source heat pump, solar photovoltaic cells and sunlight tubes installed in order to offset our carbon footprint. All our vans have also been converted to LPG, not only reducing our emissions but also reducing costs, a saving which we pass onto our clients.
The Lucion Northern England office provides the following asbestos services:
We have demonstrable experience in a vast array of archetypal types of buildings from large industrial sites, to education settings, to residential dwellings. Types of survey projects include:
- Pre refurbishment / demolition
We can provide a full range of analytical services including both material (bulk) and air testing for asbestos fibres in the air. The methodical approach and professional commitment of our on site asbestos analysts continue to uphold Lucion’s reputation as a trusted deliver of quality. All our tests can be carried out either at our in-house lab, or by our analysts out on site, both of which we hold United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) accreditation.
Lucion Environmental can be with you from the beginning to the end of managing your asbestos related issues. We have compliance auditors who can assist in controlling asbestos abatement projects and assist in compiling corporate policies, procedures and management plans.
Lucion have a purpose built training facility in the Gateshead. Both UKATA accredited awareness training, BOHS Proficiency courses and IOSH Managing Safely courses are held periodically, but can also be booked in to your requirements.
At present there are over 66,000 hectares of brownfield sites in England, but building work cannot be carried out until the land has been surveyed by professional asbestos surveyors. Asbestos contaminated soil must be treated extremely seriously as even low concentrations can cause elevated airborne asbestos concentrations.
