National contractor Tolent has seen another win for its asbestos removal division, securing a consecutive framework with City of York Council for £1.2m.

Over the next four years the team will be the sole provider for the council’s housing arm, covering works on the City of York Council’s housing, public and educational buildings.

With around 50 staff members and operatives now delivering a 24/7/365 planned and reactive service across the UK, the team is currently delivering works on 15 other frameworks, covering around 300,000 properties across the country.

As an Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA) accredited asbestos division, the business is also looking to expand and sharing its 20 years’ experience as it looks to offer local employment and training opportunities throughout the new framework, adding to four recent new appointments within the team.

General Manager for the asbestos removal division, Anthony Wade, said: “Having delivered the previous framework term of around four and a half years for the council, it’s fantastic to know that our first-class service through our experienced, dedicated and motivated workforce is reaping the benefits with repeat business like this.

“We have the knowledge and expertise to support clients at any stage of a project from inspection and surveying services, all the way through to asbestos removal, abatement and disposal.”

Asbestos was widely used in building materials throughout the UK from the 1950s through to the mid-1980s and is still the single most frequent cause of work-related deaths in the UK today.
