As building land becomes increasingly short in supply the requirement for redevelopment of existing buildings and land has become very important. As a leading demolition and enabling contractor we have to be sure that the associated environmental hazards have been identified before we can start a project. This is established from detailed surveys by specialist companies.
These are typically (ACM's) Asbestos Containing Materials found in the fabric of the buildings and contaminates in the surrounding land.
At Downwell in conjunction with our group company Inner City Environmental we can provide a complete service to deal with these important issues.
Our full range of Asbestos and Environmental Services are:
Key to managing asbestos is to identify the location, type, condition and extent of any ACMs. This is achieved by conducting a survey that must be undertaken in accordance with HSE guidance note HSG 264. The survey must be and should be of one of two types:
- Management Survey
- Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

Asbestos Removal and Encapsulation
Downwell will provide you with a professional removal and encapsulation service for licensed and non licensed ACM’s on small to large scale projects. It is not always necessary to remove Asbestos, it can be encapsulated instead and this can be a more cost effective method.
We have the capability to provide our own environmental monitoring by our in-house technical specialist, offering advice and consultancy in monitoring techniques and applications. We advise on equipment selection and offer a broad range of solutions that not only comply with current standards but are also extremely cost effective.
Downwell can tackle a diverse spectrum of projects from rubbish removal, void property remediation to fully stripping, removing pigeon guano, sweeps for needles and sharps and removal of human/animal waste.
In the planning and implementing of all our projects throughout our divisions we believe that maintaining a safe and pollutant free environment is key.
