Asbestos specialists have been appointed on a three-year framework to provide asbestos consultancy services to South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust.
WYG, an award-winning global multi-disciplinary consultancy, will provide specialist surveys to the Trust prior to any refurbishment or demolition works across a portfolio of nearly 100 properties.
An accredited specialist in asbestos consultancy, WYG has helped the NHS keep its property portfolio safe for over 10 years.
Jon Kirby, Senior Asbestos Consultant, WYG said: “The work that we will undertake will primarily consist of intrusive surveys to assist refurbishment and demolition contractors in major capital projects. It will also enable the Trust to fulfil their statutory responsibilities in the day to day management of asbestos across the portfolio.”
Robert Barr, Director of Estates, South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust said: “The Trust is pleased to partner with WYG to ensure compliance with our asbestos regulation requirements. WYG were appointed as they have a strong track record in asbestos handling and advising on how to keep the environment safe for our service users, carers, visitors and staff.”
