It has been recognised by both a major high street retailer and their associated external organisations including principal contractors, project management consultants, CDM co-ordinators and quantity surveyors that the role and appointment of an independent and experienced Asbestos management consultant was a key factor in the successful delivery of various Nationwide Asbestos projects in 2008.

There were several initiatives developed, processes, guidance and actions implemented by the Bright Asbestos Solutions to raise the knowledge, awareness and standards of all parties involved in the asbestos project as a part of an overall construction project.

It was estimated by our clients procurement consultant that appointing an experienced Asbestos manager to work in conjunction with cost management and procurement as a team, saved them approximately £2,000,000 through various initiatives, negotiations, tendering, cost analysis, performance management, mitigating discovery and delivering programme and cost certainty.

As you may have experienced there are many challenges during Asbestos projects in terms of health and safety compliance, programme certainty and cost value. These can be due to internal issues with a lack of knowledge and experience of Asbestos management or poor performance of appointed contractors and consultants.
