Asbestos Consultancy and Contracting

As one of the most widely using minerals until the 1980s, asbestos is something that cannot be avoided, especially when in buildings built before it was banned in 1999. Consequently, management of remaining material is a reality for many.

RSK company PA Group is a multiservices business providing asbestos consultancy and contract delivery. Working in the property and construction sectors for both private- and public-sector clients, the company provide all asbestos general environmental, remediation, assessment and interior refurbishment services.

Certified and accredited

RSK and PA Group are committed to ensuring clients fully understand their duty to manage asbestos and assist them in legislative compliance with the latest regulations (CAR 2012).

To this end, PA Group are an HSE licensed contractor for asbestos removals and is certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 for quality, environmental, and health and safety management. The company is also UKAS-accredited for asbestos inspection and testing activities, including operating an in house laboratory.

Qualified, controlled and responsible disposal

We recognise that clients are trying to satisfy their asbestos disposal objectives but can be constrained by budget restrictions and/or access. The potential fines if the material is not dealt with by qualified operatives in a controlled environment and disposed of responsibly are a major concern.

To allay and assist with these challenges, PA Group has developed a selection of solutions that have varying levels of cost to suit whatever the client needs. The company has an excellent health and safety record and knows that longevity in partnership delivers consistency in the management of critical information and supports clients with their due diligence.

We truly believe that clients can fulfil their duty to manage asbestos without incurring unnecessary risk, expense or delays simply by seeking professional advice at the earliest possible stage of any secured project.

A flexible and comprehensive portfolio

RSK’s overall group philosophy is to aim to offer its clients as many services as possible under one roof, and this service reflects that ethos.

PA Group’s service portfolio has evolved accordingly to reflect the demands of the modern built environment and the individual requirements of clients and their projects. Their asbestos-related offering includes surveying, removal, management, training, general strip-outs, de-rating and enabling, demolition, dismantling, reinstatement and roofing.

Expert surveyors and contract managers

Our team of expert surveyors and contract managers have more than 100 years of experience between them. They have all been with PA Group for a minimum of seven years and hold the highest levels of qualifications to carry out asbestos-related activities.

Our client base for this service is distributed throughout the UK and our teams’ strategic positioning reflect this, though the highest concentration is in the south.
