Best-practice methods that meet local and international standards

Christchurch & South Island

Earthquake experience 

Since the 2010 Canterbury Earthquakes, we have tested or removed asbestos from over 9000 properties. Following February 22, 2011, we worked on site in the Red Zone including supplying advice and equipment to USAR as well as in the community assisting with clean-up and emergency repairs.

Since then, we have been a major provider to EQC directly as well as various Fletcher EQR hubs and Insurance companies themselves. We also quote and perform work for homeowners directly.

Our staff and their knowledge base in the asbestos industry reaches back to the late 70’s with several having over 40 years’ experience with this product.

Historic building experience

We are proud to have been the company chosen to carry out the recent restoration of Government House in Wellington, work in American Samoa after the Hurricanes and on the Sir Edmund Hilary’s TAE Hutt in Antarctica. Our Staff have made us proud of their achievements, completing this work to a very high standard often in very difficult surroundings.

We are proud to have received special commendation for our work at Government House from both the Governor General and the Prime Minister. While also receiving industry recognition in the Demolition and Asbestos Awards 2017, winning the best “Asbestos or Demolition Best Practice Project under 20k” for our work in Antarctica.
