The Royal Mail Group approached Environtec in 2012 to assist in a commercially urgent project of asbestos risk identification and reduction. Following the successful delivery of the project, Environtec were awarded a position on a 5 year Framework.


Project: Compliance Improvement Programme

Client: Royal Mail Group (RMG)

Sector: Logistics

Location: UK

Duration: 18 Months

Project Value: £400K


To assist RMG in achieving enhanced compliance status and risk reduction during due diligence phase of flotation.

To work within a framework of various consultancies to deliver asbestos surveying and inspection services to approximately 1000 sites throughout the UK.

To work collaboratively with all RMG suppliers and key partners.


This was a challenging project with a client need to facilitate a commercially urgent project.

The project was led by an Associate Director with previous experience of RMG’s assets and systems which allowed for a smooth transition from planning into delivery.

A national team of surveyors and supervisors were mobilised to deliver a programme of surveys and inspections. The programme was tailored to account for a schedule or prioritisation.

To facilitate the inspections as efficiently as possible, we liaised closely with the site managers and worked together on the inspection to ensure that all areas were accessed.

On completion of each phase of inspections, management information reports were supplied to RMG providing crucial data that influenced decision making on risk mitigation for each site and the portfolio as a whole.

The final phase of the project was to deliver asbestos removal works for the sites with the highest risk ACMs, approximately 130 sites. This was delivered through Environtec’s Project Management and Supervision services.
