PROJECT OVERVIEW

Environtec was awarded a 3 year framework agreement in 2009 and then again in 2013 to provided a range of asbestos inspection and testing services to facilitate the management of the Councils corporate assets, which included ensuring the council’s asset management systems were up to date and accurate and to provide an emergency response in cases of emergencies.

Additional services also included providing general specialist advice and training in all matters relating to asbestos as well as additional supervisory and management services as part of asbestos abatement projects.

OUR APPROACH

There was a particular focus on ensuring effective identification and management of asbestos in CLASP and System Type buildings so we provided a dedicated team of highly trained and experienced consultants with particular knowledge of CLASP buildings.

It was vital that the Council’s asset management systems accurately reflected site conditions so responsibility for survey data transfer into the Council’s asset management systems (P2/Concerto) was given to the lead surveyor and data handling team in the Midlands office.

Many of the sites were schools and colleges so ensuring the health, safety and welfare of students and staff at all times was key to our approach. We established good working relationships with building managers and users to effectively manage risk whilst on site and worked in partnership with all stakeholders responsible for major refurbishment projects to facilitate planned improvement works to schools.
