Tolent has welcomed three new contract wins for its asbestos removal division, totalling £7m worth of work across the North East and Yorkshire.
The recent flurry of wins also includes one of the team’s biggest ever; a £4m contract for Leeds City Council.
This replaces a previous contract for the council that solely covered its housing stock. The team will now carry out all asbestos works to homes as well as all other public sector buildings over the next four years.
Anthony Wade, general manager for Tolent’s asbestos removal division, said: “Thanks to the continued professionalism and quality service carried out by our teams across the country, we are seeing significant growth across the business, with no signs of slowing down.
“Following the recent wins, we’re now looking to rebuild our teams following a tough 2020, with positions available across the North East and Yorkshire. There really is no better time to join the team as we continue to become the contractor of choice within our sector.”
The team also won a £1.8m contract with landlord and housing developer Thirteen Group, covering its housing stock over the next five years, and a large removal scheme for a South Tees NHS Trust which is currently underway.
With over 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.
