We have extensive experience of providing asbestos surveying and consultancy to the education sector with particular focus on schools and higher and further education colleges. We have comprehensive experience of surveying for asbestos and project-managing it’s removal in buildings of CLASP construction, including schools, universities, swimming baths/sports centres and libraries.

Key issues we have experience of managing include:

  • segregation and out of hours working (school holidays)
  • keeping to tight deadlines
  • liaising with Caretakers, Premises Managers and Business Managers
  • robust reinstatement to withstand additional wear and tear.


A survey conducted in 2019 found that 80.9% of participating schools said asbestos was present in their buildings.  Education and support staff unions have launched a campaign for asbestos removal, the Joint Union Asbestos Committee (“JUAC”).  It  states that in 2017 17 teachers  died of mesothelioma.
