As building land becomes increasingly short in supply, the requirement for the redevelopment of existing buildings and the surrounding open space has become very important. As a leading demolition and enabling contractor, we have to be sure that detailed surveys for potential associated environmental hazards are available.
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 can provide a complete service to deal with these important issues.
The full range of Asbestos removal and Environmental Services provided by the Downwell Group through Inner City Environmental are:
The key to managing Asbestos is to identify the location, type, condition and extent of any ACMs by carrying out a survey. The survey must be and should be one of two types:
- Management Survey
- Refurbishment and Demolition Survey
Asbestos Removal and Encapsulation
Inner City will provide you with a professional asbestos 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, the alternative is encapsulation, and this can be a more cost-effective method.
Inner City can provide environmental monitoring by their in-house technical specialist, offering advice and consultancy in monitoring techniques and applications. They will advise on equipment selection and offer a broad range of solutions that not only comply with current standards but are also extremely cost-effective.
Inner City can tackle a diverse spectrum of projects from rubbish removal, void property remediation to entirely stripping, removing pigeon guano, sweeps for needles and sharps, and elimination of human/animal waste.
In response to the Coronavirus, Inner City can also carry out Infection Control as part of environmental cleaning services.
Lead Paint Removal
We have added Lead Abatement to our portfolio. As with asbestos, a survey needs to be carried out before works begin and should be done before an asbestos survey is carried out to prevent any lead exposure to the surveyors carrying out the survey. The work is carried out under controlled conditions as with asbestos.
