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 exposure to asbestos fibres can lead to fatal diseases such as lung cancer and mesothelioma.
Asbestos is a deadly mineral that, if disturbed, can cause lung cancer, asbestosis or mesothelioma. As yet there is no cure for any of these fatal diseases. However, if UK regulation and guidance is followed correctly, asbestos needn’t be a problem for you. Lucion provide experienced asbestos surveyors for management or pre-refurbishment/demolition surveys, and our technically trained asbestos analysts are on hand for air testing and bulk sample analysis wherever necessary. Our asbestos abatement consultant is also available to provide a dedicated asbestos management and consultancy service right through the process from initial survey to asbestos removal.
