Midlands Asbestos Solutions Ltd recently embarked on an exciting project with Cropwell Bishop Creamery.

This storied company produce the finest Stilton & blue cheeses in traditional ways with recipes past down from 3 generations. Their project is to create a new café area for members of the public and customers to enjoy a lunch of on-site made products.

Assessment and Planning

Cropwell Bishop Creamery contacted Midlands Asbestos Solutions back in December for a free, no-obligation quotation. We arranged a meeting on-site with their engineering manager to discuss the scope of works. Using this, we produced a rigorous quotation.

Hygiene and safety are important to businesses, especially in places where customers dine, and we approached this task with the utmost care and precision.  We conducted the meeting in early January and produced a thorough quotation and scope of work. Cropwell Bishop accepted our proposal and we got to work. We planned the works in at the next available dates to suit both parties.

Asbestos Removal

The asbestos removal works required the removal of the non-asbestos ceiling to allow access to the asbestos ceiling panels that were concealed above, this would make the room safe and give them a blank canvas to work from.  As part of the package, we arranged for a non-asbestos skip to be on-site to make removal and clean up seamless. 

We also worked with Cropwell Bishop to find an area where the skip would be most suitable, we agreed on the location in the car park in advance so Cropwell Bishop could plan their customer’s parking needs before the removal, within this period Cropwell Bishop Creamery arranged for all stored items to be removed allowing clear access for Midlands Asbestos Solutions and all electrical services were isolated by the client to allow a smooth process to carry out the removal work.

We carried out the asbestos removal work under locally controlled conditions ensuring any harmful asbestos was removed from the site. We also removed the ceiling panels to leave a fresh shell for a new false ceiling. All-access and plant equipment was provided by Midlands Asbestos Solutions.

We completed the work to the client’s specification on budget and in a shorter time than planned which the client was delighted with. We completed a handover back to the client at the end of the works. Our director, Darren Skinner, oversaw this process to ensure that the client was satisfied with the works at the end of the project.

Midlands Asbestos Solutions are proud to work with clients across all sectors including domestic homeowners. If you have any projects or any questions you would like us to assist you with, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team of friendly experts.

What the client said:

“After having a survey carried out for asbestos in our proposed new café and finding asbestos above the false ceiling, I was recommended 3 companies to obtain quotations for the removal of it, one being Midland Asbestos Solutions. Their detail and content in the quotation were easy and straightforward and I placed the order with Midlands Asbestos Solutions to come and remove it.”

“Apart from removing the asbestos, I required the complete suspended ceiling removed which was not an issue for them to incorporate in the asbestos removal. The professionalism of the company was first class. They worked in a very tidy and safe manner, nothing was too much and the project was completed on time. The site was left very clean and tidy all waste being removed and skipped away the same day.”

“I would highly recommend Midlands Asbestos Solutions Ltd for the reliability, service and price.”
