Auckland asbestos removal services

We’re qualified experts specialising in professional asbestos surveying, management and removal. Throughout Auckland, we make buildings and construction sites safe and sound.

As a commercial building or homeowner, you have a responsibility to protect the general public and any tradesperson from exposure to asbestos fibres. You are obliged, by law, to check for asbestos. In addition, it is a legal requirement that the removal and disposal of asbestos be carried out by qualified professionals. Call Richard on 021 488732 to inquire about reliable surveying and asbestos removal services.

Asbestos is not worth the risk

Asbestos fibres can cause fatal lung disease and lung cancer. More than 170 New Zealanders die each year from diseases stemming from exposure to asbestos.

The discovery of asbestos can also cause costly delays to a building project. The solution: get an asbestos survey before you begin demolition or renovations.

What to do if you discover or accidentally disturb asbestos

If you make an unexpected discovery of asbestos, or discover materials which you suspect contain asbestos, you must stop work immediately, put up a warning sign and ensure nobody enters the area. If you do not do so, you run the risk of WorkSafe NZ closing the site. Prohibition notices are time consuming and expensive for any construction project.

Safe Asbestos removal

Removal should only be carried out by those trained to work safely with asbestos materials. We have the right equipment and expertise. 

Fortunately, we understand the practical and logistical issues of carrying out asbestos removal in New Zealand businesses and property developments. If we say we’ll be there, then we’ll be there. We appreciate the fact that you’re in business and require a contractor who is flexible and can get the work done safely and efficiently.
