Our history

Somerset asbestos removal

Abbey Contracting were first established in 2000 to provide asbestos removal and surveying services throughout Somerset.

Since this time, we have moved from an office in Glastonbury, to our new premises in 2015 on the outskirts of Taunton and are now pleased to be able to offer asbestos removal throughout the South of England and Wales, and nationwide where required.

Over this period, we also decided we would move away from the surveying element of our business. This meant we could focus on providing an effective asbestos removal service to our clients, without a potential conflict of interest which can arise when a company carries out both the asbestos survey and removals.

We successfully obtained a licence to build our Waste Transfer Station at our Fideoak Mill site in 2015, meaning we can accept external asbestos waste from other asbestos removal contractors, and contractors who are qualified to remove and transport non-licensed asbestos waste, as well as disposing of the waste generated on our own sites. As one of the few asbestos removal companies with this facility in the Somerset area, we are able to keep our costs lower, allowing us to pass the savings on to our clients.

We are extremely proud to have been awarded another full 3-year licence from the HSE in 2018, enabling us to work on many different types of sites until our license renewal in 2021. This is the longest term obtainable from the HSE and is testament to the hard work and high standards our staff have produced over the last 3-year license period. We aim to continue to improve standards wherever possible, as well as maintaining our performance and professionalism in all areas.

We have a view of providing a professional and reliable service through what is known to be an expensive and daunting process, at a competitive price, without sacrificing the quality of our management or workmanship. This has built us a good reputation and relationship with our clients, who in turn provide us with repeat business time and again.
