National contractor Tolent has seen two new wins for its asbestos removal division potentially worth over £3m.
Over the next four years the team will be the sole provider for believe housing, covering all of its housing stock across County Durham.
The contract which is potentially worth around £1.2m, follows an eight year framework where Tolent delivered £3.5m worth of work and adds to the relationship with believe, as the contractor is building 41 family homes across two sites in Peterlee.
The second contract win, worth a potential £2m over the next five years is with Karbon Homes. The team has again been appointed sole provider on the framework that covers the housing provider’s north east domestic housing stock. The contractor has just handed over its first scheme for Karbon Homes in Hexham, delivering 38 high specification apartments for older residents.
General Manager for the asbestos removal division, Anthony Wade, said: “We’re delighted to be starting 2020 with two new contract wins, building on a record breaking year in 2019.
“Last year we completed a diverse range of almost 8,000 individual job tasks, ranging from small scale domestic removals to a full strip out of a former Bingo Hall in Edinburgh. Our fleet have covered in excess of 489,000 miles throughout the North East, North West and Yorkshire, servicing our frameworks and one off contracts far beyond.
“We look forward to working with both believe and Karbon Homes throughout 2020 and beyond.”
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.
Believe housing are a registered provider of social housing with circa 18,000 homes across all areas of County Durham.

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.
