Lancaster University current enrols over 15,000 students with an impressive 560 acre parkland site. The university also proudly boosts its collegiate system, which only a handful of universities in the UK adhere too. As students stay within just one college during their enrolment, the upkeep of buildings and construction is vital for the safety and welfare of students and staff.

All works carried out were meticulously planned in conjunction with the University’s principle contractor and were successfully completed within the proposed timescale, budget and to scope.

There have been several licensed and non-licensed works carried out within this partnership to a total value of £150,000. The most recent works include asbestos abatement within four large boiler rooms. Due to the size and layouts of these rooms the work was complex but removed successfully.

We have also conducted a number of remedial works in confined space conditions throughout the north and south spine of the University with our experienced confined space team, safely removing asbestos to allow the University’s contractors access to their spine duct network.

During the past 12 months, Amianto Services have successfully and safely removed approximately 80 tonnes of waste. The work carried out within Lancaster University has contributed to this number and demonstrates the extensive removal work carried out within the company.

Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh Hospital Trust is an innovative trust that serves the people of Wigan and Leigh, providing the best possible healthcare for the local population and aims to continuously provide safe quality care to all patients. Over £220 million is spent each year on a diverse range of reputable general and specialist acute services.

Having worked intermittently on many high profile projects, both licensed and non-licensed, our work has totalled in excess of £180,000. This asbestos removal work has ranged from:

  • Space ducts
  • Basements
  • Boiler rooms

Our work is designed to cause as minimal disruption as possible, for example, our complex enclosure design ensured the hospital could remain open throughout and maintain full operations. In addition, we have worked through the night, out of hours weekend working and used careful planning to minimise disruption and ensure the safest of working practices are maintained at all times.

Work was completed to our very high standard, was in line with what was in the agreed scope, within agreed timescales and to budget.

The standard of our work and the measures we put in places enabled us to pass the HSE spot checks with no issues reported and the receipt of positive feedback.
