Project Overview

Lucion have a long standing relationship with Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, having worked with them since 2011.

This Trust covers a wide geographical area and we have proven our ability to meet their call out requirements and report turnaround times without issue, and with continued support from our Regional Office in Gateshead.

In March 2014 we were requested by the Trust to carry out a fully intrusive pre-refurbishment survey at short notice to two large buildings. We were called out on an urgent turnaround to inspect the locations within the buildings.

We mobilised quickly and provided a team of BOHS P402 qualified surveyors and a BOHS P403 and P404 qualified analyst to run reassurance air testing during the survey works. All staff assigned to the hospital are CRB / DBS checked every 24 months as a minimum, hold at least two years experience in their role and carry photographic ID cards signed and authorised by Lucion’s Managing Director.

The team’s Lead Surveyor liaised with the Trust’s estates team, building users on site and the Trust’s main contractor.

Our survey report was issued within stated urgent turnaround timescales for the Trust allowing them to proceed with ongoing project works.


Lucion have provided a service as an independent surveyor and analyst for our Trust, undertaking management, demolition and refurbishment surveys to aid the management of the Trust's asbestos register and complete asbestos management. Their surveyors and analysts have always been efficient, effective, and considerate of those they encounter on site. All in all, they have helped us maintain our duty to manage asbestos with accurate advice and solutions.
