Shield Environmental Services

Founded in 1979 by brothers Jon and Phillip House, Shield Environmental Services (SES) predominantly specialised in thermal insulation to the public and private sector. Following the change in legislation of the use of asbestos and research of the health hazards of the substance, SES soon established itself as a market leader within the asbestos removal industry. It was subsequently decided in 1985 to change the company name to SES as this fully reflected the type of work that we were requested to do.

SES offer end to end environmental and risk management services, protecting people and improving the environment. SES has become one of the UK`s leading Environmental Service Solutions specialists. SES is an HSE accredited company specialising in the provision of Asbestos Removal and Remediation, Asbestos Training, Thermal Insulation, Demolition, Scaffolding, Electrical, Fire & Security and Marine Services.

SES` asbestos removal offerings, include a wide range of removal techniques, encapsulation and decontamination services to suit your requirements. We have the ability and expertise to remove and dispose of licensed, notifiable non-licensed and non-licensed asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). Our highly qualified and experienced staff will work with you to plan and undertake works safely.

We use the latest technologies and equipment, ensuring that our services offer the most practical and advanced solutions and remain at the forefront of Asbestos Removal Companies. Our site teams can also provide re-insulation and minor re-instatement work following asbestos works, reducing liaison and lead-in times for follow-on contractors.

As part of Shield Environmental Services` Asbestos services, we provide Land Remediation - we remove asbestos-containing items from both the surface and beneath the ground.

The demolition of historic buildings along with inadequate waste management practices have both lead to many brownfield sites across the UK being contaminated with asbestos. Typical asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) found within such sites include asbestos cement products, asbestos insulation debris, asbestos rope and asbestos insulation board.

We work with clients and third party contractors to identify the most suitable land remediation measures for their site, which may consist of capping, excavation, soil washing or mechanical screening of contaminated soil. Where possible we will segregate ACMs from the affected soil to reduce the volume of waste being disposed of at landfill.

During the land remediation process routine background air tests and personal monitoring of site operatives are completed to ensure that asbestos fibre exposure levels are not exceeded.

Our work includes:

Identification of suitable land remediation measures
Segregation and safe disposal of hazardous materials
Careful monitoring to ensure asbestos fibre exposure level is not exceeded
Ensuring compliance with legislative and environmental requirements
