Our Vision:

We are the most trusted brand of experts in asbestos consultancy

We improve standards, we raise the bar, we are leaders

We make a positive impact and help save lives

We are a company that works for everyone


Our Values:

A = Accuracy

B = Belonging

C = Communication

D = Development

E = Experience

Accuracy – we work with personal pride, professionalism, attention to detail and with habitual standards of excellence.

Belonging – we are a team, a company of people who believe in what we’re creating. We are a family who each play a vital part and together we are stronger than our individual parts.  We support each other, our clients, our suppliers and our community.

Communication – we talk, we listen, we pursue understanding, clarity and direction. We are open, honest, friendly and respectful. We seek feedback and understand both compliments and criticism are vital for learning.

Development – we always improve and drive change through the development of our people, our processes and our results. We understand innovation and evolution are natural.   We have a high-performing culture but also understand we can always do better.

Experience – we create and deliver a positive memorable experience for all at every touchpoint; for ourselves, our clients, our suppliers and our community. We give a warm welcome, solve a problem well and bid a fond farewell until the next time.  We feel good and leave our clients feeling good.

If we should ever fall out of alignment with our values, then we stop, review and make decisions to re-align and move forward which means we’ve learned, we’re wiser, we’re better and we’re back on track.      




We protect you, your building users’ safety, and your reputation.

We ensure our clients make progress and they get a good Return On Investment in us.

We aim to be our clients preferred supplier for all their asbestos compliance needs. We will solve your problems, take away the headache and give you back your precious time. Protecting you and your people.

We adhere to the 3 key principles of Quality, Delivery and Value.

We provide an excellent level of technical expertise in a friendly down-to-earth manner. A swift response to all your needs with quick analysis and report delivery.

We ensure customer satisfaction throughout and crucially, deliver it at a fair price. This is a partnership, a mutually beneficial relationship. We serve each other well.

Our ‘USP’ is not to be the cheapest; cheap means sacrificing quality and care. We let others do cheap. An 8hr job cannot be delivered for a 4hr price without sacrifices. Our Clients understand this.




We believe distance is no object and no job is too small. Asbestos can be in any building constructed before the year 2000 so we routinely work in Domestic, Commercial or Industrial buildings across the UK and ROI.

Our clients range from the private homeowner or small business with 1 property; to housing associations, local authorities, NHS Trusts and ‘blue chip’ companies in retail, banking and manufacturing whom have 100’s of nationwide sites.

Our Durham head office provides efficient coverage of the North East and its surrounding regions. Whilst our Scottish office allows us to provide our services to a growing client base ‘up North’.

Other strategically located satellite offices and home based staff further enables us to offer national coverage in the UK and ROI. We also work outside the UK when needed.
