Project Overview

In 2012 Durham University underwent a survey of their entire estate. The project required asbestos management of a large scope of buildings, from halls of residence to complete campus estates, in total covering 321 buildings.

These buildings not only vary in size and occupancy but also in age from a Norman fortress to 1960’s builds. This contract required awareness of working around different levels of occupancy and building use. Our site staff were aware of the sensitivities of working in occupied research and development areas, particularly laboratories.

The second phase of this management survey programme ran through June – October 2012, covering 90 university buildings. We dedicated six full time surveyors on site to fulfil the requirements of the contract.

All members of this team were enhanced DBS checked with at least 2 years site experience and BOHSP402 certified. They also carried photographic identification cards, wore uniforms with a clear logo and drove liveried vans that do not highlight our work with asbestos to ensure the comfort of all staff, students and members of the public they may have encountered.
