A bespoke seminar at LHC took on the challenges that occur when managing asbestos in social housing
Global Environmental teamed up with removals contractor Clifford Devlin on 19 March to deliver a bespoke seminar at LHC in Uxbridge on the specific issues and challenges that occur when managing asbestos during the maintenance and refurbishment of social housing.
