Lawson Environmental set to expand asbestos removal team

Lawson Environmental are hoping to add yet another asbestos removal operative to their ever expanding team, as Sherif Kuci undertakes training to qualify him to carry out the removal of dangerous asbestos services.

He is due to complete his in-depth three day New Operative Asbestos Removal Course with ARCA at the end of this week, adding to his demolition qualifications already gained whilst working as an operative for Lawson Demolition.

On successful completion of the qualification, he will then go on to join the team carrying out asbestos removal at the Billybanks Estate site in Penarth.

Lawson Group reach new Heights with development in Penarth

Lawson Group were this month heading back to Wales for the first phase of works at Penarth Heights in the Vale of Glamorgan. Lawson Group have been working with the Uk's Premier House Builder Crest Nicholson in a much-needed redevelopment of the near-derelict Billybanks estate which has been empty for over nine years.

Prior to the demolition works commencing, asbestos had to be safely and carefully removed from some parts of the site by Lawson Group's trained and qualified asbestos removal operatives. Following the completion of the asbestos removal, the demolition team will knock down the remaining structures over the next few months, to make way for the 377 new houses and apartments planned by Crest Nicholson.
The development will be welcomed by local people, who recently voted the estate the ugliest unique eyesore in Wales! The site was also voted the eighth worst eyesore in Britain, with some twenty seven per cent of people in Cardiff voting for the run-down estate in a magazine survey.

Lawson Group Director Martin Wilson commented: "We are delighted to be working once again with Crest Nicholson, and even more importantly to be helping to rid Wales of it's number one eyesore! We are due to be working on the demolition of the site for the next few months, with works due to continue into August. The site will then be cleared for redevelopment to bring some great new housing and facilities to the area".
