Asbestos removal categories

There are 3 different types of Asbestos Removal  & Encapsulation work. These are Non-Licenced WorkNotifiable Non-Licenced Work (NNLW) and Licenced Work.

All non-licensed and notifiable non-licensed work with asbestos must be carried out as detailed on the task sheets within the HSE resource Asbestos Essentials.  Those carrying out the work must have had the correct level of information, instruction and training, to protect themselves and others from the risks to health that exposure to asbestos causes.

Licenced work must be carried out by a Licenced Asbestos Removal Contractor (LARC).

We always recommend using a licenced contractor to remove any asbestos, whether it is in the commercial or private sectors.

Removal or encapsulation?

If a building built before the year 2000 has to be demolished there is a good chance that it will contain asbestos. Of course, this is to be confirmed after you have had a demolition and refurbishment survey which we can arrange for you by accredited surveyors. Inner City uses a variety of methods to carry out asbestos removal works under controlled conditions. However, if the building is to undergo refurbishment and asbestos is in the building and is in good condition, you don’t always have to remove it, you might be able to manage it.

Why choose asbestos encapsulation?

Asbestos encapsulation is a cost-effective alternative to the sometimes expensive asbestos removal process. Removing asbestos can cause asbestos fibres to be released into the air if not removed with extreme care. The asbestos encapsulation method seals the asbestos material with a protective coating. It is the safest solution  to protecting your building from disturbing the potentially dangerous asbestos fibres.

The benefits are:

  • More cost-effective option than asbestos removal 
  • No fibres are released
  • Less time consuming
  • Less disruption caused
  • More environmentally friendly

Please contact one of our experts at Inner City Environmental to discuss whether asbestos removal or encapsulation is the best method for your project.

Lead Paint Removal

Just as asbestos, lead paint which was common in properties built before the 1980’s can cause serious health problems. Breathing in lead dust or fumes can cause kidney, nerve, brain damage or infertility. This is caused by stripping old paint with blow torches, heat guns and sanding.

The paint can be found under existing paintwork in older buildings.

Inner City can arrange testing and removal under controlled conditions.
