How do we help Interserve?
Interserve have been instrumental in a joint venture to build seven new schools as part of the government’s Priority School Building Programme. The project was to be undertaken to design and build seven secondary schools across Hertfordshire, Luton and Reading. A major part of the project has been to demolish the former school buildings once the new schools were constructed and in use. Prior to demolition, Interserve require the services of an asbestos consultancy to survey each site and ensure the identification and removal of asbestos containing materials (ACMs).
Full Provision of Testing Services
Across a number of Interserve schools projects we provide full time on site testing, undertaking background, leakage and personal air monitoring, providing certificates of reoccupation for the project meaning compliance for Interserve.
Flexible Site Working
Our on site testing capabilities provide Interserve with instant results, avoiding the waiting time associated with sending samples away from testing. This provides Interserve with more time on site and the ability to proceed with required works quickly, reducing the interruption to work streams and site downtime.
