In 2020, RSK expanded its asbestos services with the acquisition of PA Group, a multidisciplinary, Health and Safety Executive licensed asbestos removal and UKAS-accredited asbestos inspection and testing contractor. Based in Dartford, UK, it employs 50 people and provides a flexible and comprehensive portfolio of asbestos services, including asbestos surveys, remediation, roofing and contract delivery, to property and construction clients in the public and private sectors.

The company has received various accreditations demonstrating its ongoing commitment to health and safety, quality and the environment, and assuring clients of its competence and expertise. It is UKAS accredited, SafeContractor approved and a Constructionline Gold member. Adding PA Group serves to enhance RSK’s already strong asbestos service offering.

Major recent projects included asbestos removal at the historic Alexandra Palace, London, for Willmott Dixon; asbestos surveys for Ipswich Borough Council; and, since 2011, asbestos surveys, reinspections and management advice at sites throughout the UK for the Canal & River Trust.
