Commercial Asbestos Removal

Asbestos still kills around 5000 workers each year – that’s around 20 tradesman die each week as a result of past exposure.

Asbestos in the workplace

Hintons have extensive experience in removing and encapsulating asbestos at commercial premises. We are often employed by construction companies where asbestos removal is required before the demolition/refurbishment of the building can begin.

Offices built or refurbished prior to 1999 may contain asbestos within them. It is the duty of the premises owner to have an asbestos survey undertaken and if required an asbestos management plan.

Will business have to stop?

No. Asbestos can be removed while commercial sites are still in operation. With careful planning and communication, areas can be isolated and access managed, avoiding any dangers to the health and safety of the staff.

For sites with an asbestos management plan, we can advise on how best to deal with asbestos located on site, designating areas requiring removal or others that require regular inspection or if in a poor condition we can repair then encapsulate which can often be a more affordable option.

Industry sectors we work in include…

NHS / Healthcare

Working on large projects at various hospitals & care homes across the U.K. We have experience working on non-critical remedial works as well as large complex demanding projects nationwide.

Local Authority / Housing

We have been working in this sector for many years & have gathered a huge amount of experience working in tenanted properties & sensitive buildings. Works range from non-licensed to licensed. This sector involves a high level of communication and organisation with our liaison manager. Current frameworks involve non-licensed asbestos removal or small-scale licensed asbestos removal.

Domestic / Insurance

We experience a high number of calls with domestic enquiries regarding non-licensed asbestos; garage, porches, guttering and soffits etc. We have a dedicated non-licensed team to provide a quality, trusted & efficient service. Using this non-licensed team means we can deliver on a quicker response as they are not contracted to large projects.


Hinton’s are renowned for delivering a high standard of work within the education sector such as Schools, Colleges & Universities. Whilst successfully completing an end to end audit trail throughout the asbestos removal process.

knowledgeable and helpful


Over the last ten years I have used Hintons on a number of occasions and found them to be excellent. The staff on site area always very knowledgeable and helpful.

Hintons have completed both large and small works for the school and been equally reliable on both. They are always very helpful when I call with a problem for advice therefore I am confident in their abilities, as such I would highly recommend them.
