Asbestos Removal and Testing
Widely acknowledged as industry leaders, Advanced Environmental Services provide a service Kiwi’s can truly trust and depend on. Luke Daly, director of Advanced Environmental Services, has a young family and is passionate about reducing the risk for families and educating others about the hazards of asbestos around kids.
As a company, Advanced Environmental Services uses only the highest quality equipment and the most competent surveyors and assessors to ensure ALL* asbestos has been removed. With a “do it once, do it right” attitude, cutting corners is not something that we do.
Although regulations changed in 2016 there are a lot of cowboys still in the industry, with many newcomers entering with the legislative changes. Unfortunately, this poses massive potential risks to the average Kiwi where inexperienced and/or less skilled operators are undertaking substandard work.
One such example of this is the poor assessment and removal of unsealed asbestos ceilings in a family residence. Common in many Kiwi homes, over the years miniscule dust fragments of the asbestos coating drop down off the ceiling, landing on the carpet and drapes. A lot of companies will remove the ceiling coatings and call it a “job well done”. Unfortunately, that toxic matter is still there, and though it is near invisible to the eye, it still poses a very real health risk. For example, if your child were to push their toy across the carpet, this would cause the asbestos fibres to become airborne and inhaled, potentially leading to lung problems as they grew older.
Advanced Environmental Services’ ‘Industry Leader’ status provides mum’s, dad’s, grandparent’s, landlord’s and companies with peace of mind and the knowledge that decontamination has been completed to the highest level of industry compliance, with our teams having been trained by some of the world’s leading supervisors.

How we can help
Industrial settings of all sizes, design and construction pose multiple challenges in terms of asbestos contamination. Industrial sites are often extremely complex in terms of contamination. Asbestos can be present not only in beams and columns, laggings, roofing, insulation, flanges and cladding but right through to soil in the surrounding area. Asbestos was frequently disposed of under concrete paths and carparks only to be discovered when major works occur on the site.
Undertaking a full site survey will establish the extent of contamination. By obtaining a full picture of the level of contamination at the start better able to project manage the remediation.
We are committed to working in partnership with other industry professionals, other contractors, and government departments in order to provide the best solution for your project.
With $10m public liability insurance, we work alongside business partners and clients in meeting our mutual responsibilities under the new Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016 and the Health and Safety at Work (General Risk and Workplace Management) Regulations 2016. With the introduction of new industry-wide standards in April 2016, employers are required to take all practicable steps to have any substance thought to be asbestos appropriately tested and made safe. It is the responsibility of the person responsible for the site to be fully aware of their responsibilities to their tenants and employees.
