Shield Asbestos Removal provides land remediation services – removing asbestos contamination from the surface or below the ground.

The demolition of historic buildings along with inadequate waste management practices have both lead to many brownfield sites across the UK being contaminated with asbestos. Typical asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) found within such sites include asbestos cement products, asbestos insulation debris, asbestos rope and asbestos insulation board.

We work with clients and third party contractors to identify the most suitable land remediation measures for their site, which may consist of capping, excavation, soil washing or mechanical screening of contaminated soil.  Where possible we will segregate ACMs from the affected soil to reduce the volume of waste being disposed of at landfill.

During the land remediation process routine background air tests and personal monitoring of site operatives are completed to ensure that asbestos fibre exposure levels are not exceeded.

Our work includes:

  • Identification of suitable land remediation measures
  • Segregation and safe disposal of hazardous materials
  • Careful monitoring to ensure asbestos fibre exposure level is not exceeded
  • Ensuring compliance with legislative and environmental requirements
