Experienced Asbestos Removal Contractors

As long-standing members of ARCA (Asbestos Removal Contractors’ Association), Thompsons are trained and licensed contractors who are highly experienced in the management of asbestos. We ensure all types of asbestos we encounter are removed safely and effectively from our customers’ projects. We hold a full asbestos removal license which is issued by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), demonstrating that our asbestos removal teams work to the highest possible standard within this highly regulated area of industry. 

Although Thompsons of Prudhoe have decades of experience safely removing a broad range of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) from a wide variety of different structures and sensitive working environments, we recognised that now was the right time to invest significantly into the formation of a new business division called Thompsons Asbestos Services Ltd. As part of this new and exciting transformation, we have invested in the recruitment of additional highly skilled and experienced Asbestos Management Team members who will complement our existing and talented workforce.

We shall continue to integrate asbestos removal within a fully comprehensive demolition and dismantling service, allowing our customers to deal with one company throughout the entire site preparation and enabling process, from initial consultation to handover of the site ready for the construction phase.

Thompsons have undertaken a vast range of asbestos removal projects such as;

  • Housing Estates
  • Schools
  • Universities
  • Hospitals
  • Tower Blocks
  • Shopping Centres
  • Car Parks
  • Bridges
  • Government Buildings
  • Industrial Estates
  • Chemical Plants
  • Nuclear Power Stations
  • Oil & Gas Refineries

Throughout the works and upon completion, we work with an independent and approved analytical company to provide the documentation and reoccupation certification required for our customers’ records. For further information relating to our Asbestos Removal Services, please contact us on

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you safely remove asbestos yourself?

Asbestos is an incredibly hazardous waste. Removing asbestos from any building can be extremely dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.  There is no safe level of exposure to asbestos. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you contact an experienced asbestos removal contractor to deal with the removal and disposal of any asbestos you may find.

How much will it cost to get rid of asbestos?

Asbestos removals will vary depending on the type of job and its size. It’s best if you can speak directly with asbestos removal contractors first. They will be able to help with all aspects of the job. From, surveying, asbestos management, removal and disposal.

Does asbestos have to be removed?

Generally, asbestos doesn’t pose a threat unless it’s disturbed, meaning it doesn’t necessarily have to be removed. However, asbestos can be incredibly hazardous to humans. Therefore, if you suspect you may have asbestos present on your premises, please reach out to us!
