We found Shield Demolition to be very professional and their level of communication and health & safety both on and off site was to a very high standard. This was a very difficult site for us not only due to the location but also due to the local interests of the site and with the neighbours being literally on the door step it had the potential to go very wrong. Due to the site levels both off and on site Shield Demolition also had to manage an element of temporary works whereby Shield Demolition had to follow strict engineers detailed drawings and abide to party wall awards and agreements. Again Shield Demolition handled the temporary works aspect very professionally.

The NT requested Shield Environmental Services to carry out a (Management Asbestos Survey) of the property prior to carrying out minor improvement and internal redecoration works. From initial contact, to Shield providing a quotation for the works, through to survey, then minor asbestos removal, Shield were accommodating throughout providing a professional service backed up with clear documentation.

Project Manager

The Solent Steam Packet Ltd was delighted to engage Shield Environmental to clear pipework insulation on the steamship “Shieldhall” as a part of their grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The work started in September 2013 and finished on time and within budget at the beginning of December 2013. At all times, a high degree of professionalism was exhibited and they completed the project, leaving everything clean and tidy. Workmanship was to a consistently high standard and we will have no hesitation in recommending Shield for such works in the future.

Asbestos Abatement Officer

Shield Environmental undertook a fairly extensive notified asbestos removal project for South Tyneside Council. The work involved the complete removal of a water damaged hall floor and removal of asbestos lagged pipework within the subterranean void. Overall, the project went well, was professionally managed by competent supervisors, delivered on time and on standard.

Senior Building Surveyor

We were delighted with the service provided by Shield during the removal / cleaning of asbestos within one of our most prestigious buildings. The works which had been previously aborted by another contractor due to access, work at height and confined space complications were very competently completed by Shield within budget, on programme and without any health and safety issues. The Contracts Manager for Shield was both approachable and efficient in everything he did, whilst the site operatives worked tirelessly without complaint in trying and testing conditions. Without Shields positive can do attitude, our subsequent project works would inevitably have been delayed.

Senior Project Manager

Throughout the Risk Mitigation Enabling Works project at MOD Lyneham, where Shield were contracted to carry out Demolition, Asbestos Removals and Asbestos Surveying works. We found them willing to go the extra mile to meet the clients needs, the work they did was to a consistently high standard, both in terms of quality & safety. They always found a way of meeting the programme requirements of the project, even in difficult circumstances. Our client the Defence Infrastructure Organisation, awarded Shield their highest ever compliance score following a site audit. This high standard of work was constantly evident throughout the duration of the project, an outstanding service all round.

Pre Contracts Manager

Although this is the first project Shield Demolition carried out for McCarthy & Stone I found them very helpful and in my view they far outweighed the monetary value.

We now have Shield Demolition providing the costing’s for all our demolitions projects throughout the south west.

While working with Shield on this project we found them to fully deliver on the contracted works and keep within the agreed timescales. The cladding and finish to the cooling tank was excellent and we have not had any issues, the insulation has really helped the cooling tank fulfill its purpose.  We will keep Shield in mind for future projects and would be happy to put Shield forward for any Insulation projects.
