Environmental and Asbestos Removal
Attitudes to how a building provides environmental credentials are efficient and safe for those working within it, or visitors have thankfully improved in recent years. At Starfish Construction, this is an area which we add value and protection for our clients. The applicable regulations controlled by authorities, across domestic and commercial buildings, means it is critical that owners ensure their building meets all legislation criteria. Fines and penalties for property owners are real and carry a threat to business survival if not adhered to. For many of our customers, it's not only a desire to meet legislation but an approach to deliver a best-in-class property that drives their environmental decisions.
It's sad to state but asbestos is still today the single greatest cause of work-related deaths. Failure to meet your duties under the regulations can have serious consequences and criminal prosecutions are widely evident across many industries. The applicable regulations are designed to protect you and your employees to ensure that you meet your duty of care in assessing risk in managing Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs).
Around 3,000 products were historically manufactured containing asbestos fibres. Although finally banned in 1999, asbestos traces are routinely discovered during building maintenance and renovations. Asbestos removal is a highly technical process and Starfish Construction can offer you a professional service to ensure that removal is legal and safely removed.
