Kilburn House York, Principal Contractor Status - Asbestos Insulation Board Removal and Associated Remedial Works

  • Dispose,
  • Reinstate,
  • Remove

The site was classified as “live”, including demolition contractors, undertaking works at the same time.

As Principle Contractor we capitalised on the use of multi-skilled teams to reduce the likelihood of overruns. Furthermore, rapid response teams were in place to assist in the completion of a critical programme, reducing disruption to the client.

There were a number of contractors working on the site, and it was vital that contractors communicated effectively with each other. Indeed, day-to-day coordination ensured the success of the overall project. Check Asbestos acted as lead contractor, planning and coordinating the whole of the project and carrying out reinstatement works.We utilised a number of asbestos removal processes to complete the works.

Two enclosures were constructed using the building structure, FSC timber frame and standard polythene. The enclosures required on-site were extensive.

The airlock and baglock incorporated vision panels in addition to CCTV throughout to ensure we maintained 360 degree vision at all times.

After AIB removal, the ceiling grid and any other items in the ceiling void that could not be cleaned were removed followed by fine cleaning the enclosure, before the 4-stage clearance.

The identification of asbestos and any material that might contain it is essential to keeping your surroundings safe and compliant. We can visit all types of residential, commercial and industrial properties to analyse potential problem areas and identify any presence of asbestos.


We can remove any volume of asbestos, ranging from small quantities all the way to multiple tonnes. Our highly experienced and qualified operatives then remove it from your property in a safe and effective manner.


We have the processes, accreditation and permissions in place to dispose of asbestos in a safe, controlled and responsible way. We then provide official paperwork that proves compliance to ensure your waste is legally disposed of.


Following the removal of asbestos, properties are often left with unfinished walls, floors, ceilings and external areas such as fencing, outdoor buildings and garages. To help you return to normality, we can project manage the reinstatement of anything that has been removed in the process.
