We were recently appointed by a renowned travel catering company to safely remove asbestos insulating board above a suspended ceiling at their depot, based in Central Station in Newcastle Upon Tyne. We prepared a plan detailing each stage of the asbestos removal process. This plan was evaluated by the catering company’s health and safety team, and following approval, in September we carried out asbestos removal works under Fully Controlled Conditions.

Asbestos encapsulation and removal at Hawick Town Hall

Our long-term client, the Scottish Borders Council, recently appointed the Henderson Environmental team to conduct an asbestos removal service on an out-of-service lift at Hawick Town Hall. There were two main aspects to this job. The initial step in the process was to complete asbestos encapsulation. Asbestos encapsulation is the technique of covering or containing asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in order to prevent the release of harmful fibres into the air.

One of our long-term clients was concerned about the presence of ACMs in their pharmaceutical facility and required our team to check the pipework for asbestos. Asbestos was identified within the pipe lagging and our removal experts safely removed and disposed of contaminated materials. This process ensured tradespeople could get to work altering the pipe system within the facility without the risk of coming into contact with ACMs.

"Outstanding Service"

From the enquiry to the completion of the work, the service is outstanding. All members of staff who attended the site are professional, very polite, did their work and when I asked to do any extra work, it was not a problem, they just did it.

Lena Jopling, Hutchinson Environmental Solutions, Northumberland

"Friendly and Polite"

Hendersons stripped the asbestos ceiling panels from our garage and removed the panels from site. I was very happy with the professional and efficient way in which the work was carried out. The team were very friendly and polite and they left the garage and surrounding area clean and tidy. The work area was tested by an independent company and found to be clean and free of asbestos fibres.

John Knowles, County Durham

All the work was completed on time and to our expectations The staff were very pleasant and checked regularly that we were happy with the progress.

We were delighted by the professional approach and customer service that Henderson provided. From the onset, they demonstrated a highly structured and well-planned approach. This was also seen in how they approached the work on-site, as staff were professional, and friendly but also very concerned to do the right job. An excellent service at a reasonable price.

Peter Upton, Hexham

"Expert Knowledge"

I received excellent service from everyone at Henderson as all team members are friendly, helpful, and professional. I would recommend Henderson Environmental to anyone with an asbestos issue and on the strength of the great job that they did, if I ever need soundproofing I would go straight to them.

"Clean and Efficient Job"

Ian and his team provided us with an excellent service at a competitive price compared to others. The team were fantastic, arriving on time and working continuously to get the job done. Once completed they showed me the area they had cleared and it had been done to a very high standard, all materials were taken away and the area was thoroughly cleaned. I would highly recommend to all.

Sam Benfield, Newcastle Upon Tyne

"Stress-Free Removal "

When I was first told I had asbestos I was concerned mostly about what it meant to remove it and how destructive the process would be. I needn’t have worried as the team were in and out really quickly, working professionally, and that took all of the stress out of the situation. Thanks for a fantastic job guys!

Adrian Young, Whitley Bay

"Limited Disturbance"

We owe a huge thanks to Ian and the team for making the asbestos removal go so easily and to plan. The impact to tenants has been as minimal as possible and the asbestos skip was removed immediately. The job couldn’t have gone better and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

Neil Joslin, The Gateshead Housing Company

"Efficient and On-Time"

I needed a job done quickly and the team came out to give me a quote the following day ad provided the estimate a day later. The work was completed within the estimated time frame and given that it involved removing a ceiling and taking the wall back to brick, we expected a mess but all of the waste was removed and not even a spec of dust was left behind. It’s rare these days to find a company that surpasses expectations and these guys do just that.

Christina Porter, Whickham, Newcastle Upon Tyne

"Safe and Collaborative Team"

The Henderson team were very easy to talk to and it was simple to schedule the removal to suit our calendar. The team on-site worked with our roofers to make sure the building was watertight by the end of the day. All in all Ian and the company were great to work with.
