Asbestos in soil

Asbestos cement in the soil

Allium Environmental were called to a property in Langton Matravers, Dorset, where a drainage company felt unable to continue their groundwork in a residential property’s garden due to discovering asbestos cement in the soil.

Allium were able to attend the property and carry out an investigation in a timeframe that ensured the Principle Contractor was able to discuss our findings and report to the insurance company before this became an issue.

Following a review of our report – Allium were tasked to oversee the remaining work by employing a team of trained operatives to clear the debris and carry out the remaining excavation on the trenches to allow the drainage company to continue their work.

The overall project was able to be kept on time, and ensured minimal disturbance to the property owner as a result of the quick reactions of the Allium team and our in house asbestos testing laboratory.
