We are specialised and fully certified in a number of asbestos services. From asbestos surveying and removal through to asbestos encapsulation and training, we are experts in dealing with asbestos.




Our services include, but are not limited to:

Asbestos Surveying, Sampling and Analysis

Depending upon the current use of a building and its future plans we can provide the suitable required surveys to suit your needs. We will carry out the necessary survey for your property or project and ensure that all work undertaken is legally compliant, safe, cost effective and delivered in an efficient manner.


For individual suspect materials or areas of concern where a full survey is not required, we will visit site and carry out sampling of the suspected material. Where this is the case samples can be returned to the client within as little as 4 hours of being submitted to the laboratory ensuring peace of mind and action plans made with a minimum of delay.


We offer independent, specialist asbestos surveyors who are fully qualified to both BOHS P402 & P405 level. They provide the perfect solution to enable the client to comply with CAR (Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012) Regulation 4 ‘The Duty to Manage’.


All our surveying and sampling procedures are carried out in accordance with HSG 264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide.

Industrial/Commercial Asbestos Removal

Industrial and commercial buildings built or refurbished before the year 2000 may hold asbestos containing materials. Our team fully understands the duty holders legal responsibilities to manage a building and its asbestos content. Our professional advice and tailored management plans ensure that we work closely with duty holders in either the management or removal of asbestos within a building ensuring a safe environment for both employees and subcontractors alike.

Domestic Asbestos Removal

Rivington Environmental will offer sound advice and recommend appropriate action as required in the identification of and management of any asbestos products found within the home. Asbestos can be found in any home that was built or renovated before the year 2000. We have many years experience working on domestic properties both on social housing and privately owned properties. We treat all clients in the same courteous manner, minimise disruption whilst keeping them informed of our work progress. Should you require asbestos removal from your property you can be assured that all works will be carried out in accordance with all current regulations and HSE guidance in an entirely safe manner.

Asbestos Encapsulation

Where asbestos is deemed to be in good condition and its removal is not necessary, or if it is inaccessible or its removal would affect the integrity of a building and cause damage, encapsulation may be a preferred alternative to removal. We are able to offer a full asbestos encapsulation service.

Reinstatement works

Where asbestos containing materials require removal eg. to an internal ceiling or a garage roof, we can offer a replacement service of a suitable replacement material.


At the time of your initial enquiry simply ask our team for this option and we will be happy to quote accordingly.

Soft strip

Our highly trained operatives are experienced in carrying out ‘soft-strip’ on projects where there is a requirement for non-structural elements of a building to be removed.


Soft strip encompasses the removal of internal finishes, M&E services and non-load bearing elements of the structure.


We use soft-strip techniques where we can remove recyclable materials such as timber, metal and plastics, prior to the full demolition of site or where a building is undergoing major refurbishment. Soft-stripping allows us to segregate waste materials and, as a licensed waste carrier, ensure that we maximise the amount of material that is reused. We currently aim to recycle 95% of all materials.


All our works are organised and planned to the clients’ requirements and we ensure that our systematic method of work is delivered to the highest standard.
