The specialists

In order to demonstrate the high levels of competence and stringent Health and Safety requirements our industry dictates, LAR continues to invest heavily in a range of memberships and accreditations.

As members of the Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA) we have been represented on the ARCA Governing Council for over a decade. Accreditations are held with ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001 demonstrating the organisation’s commitment to quality, environmental and Health and Safety procedures and processes respectively.

A further six accreditations include CHAS, Constructionline, Safe Contractor, EXOR, Achilles, British Safety Council and Safemark. Additional accreditations have been achieved via Altius (Assured, Elite & CDM) confirming competency within a retail environment. For larger projects where LAR undertakes the role of principal contractor, we’ve engaged the Considerate Contractor Scheme – our commitment to site safety standards.

Our business also benefits from having its own waste transfer station and the company is accredited with both an Environment Agency Waste Management Licence and a Waste Carriers Licence.

A brief history

LAR was founded in 1997 after a management buyout of Laing Asbestos Removal – part of John Laing Construction Ltd. As a result the directors and many of the operational staff have over 30 years’ experience in the removal of asbestos, having safely and effectively carried out projects across the UK, Europe and Africa with project values of up to £3.5 million.

Market sectors

We specialise in providing a Health and Safety conscious method of working in a wide range of industry sectors including:

NHS, MOD, local authority, leisure, petro-chemical, facilities management, higher education, retail, housing associations, utilities (water, gas, electric and nuclear) to name but a few.

The future

At LAR we work extremely hard to ensure that we are at the top of our game when it comes to Health and Safety, quality and performance. As members of the North West Construction Safety Group we continue to invest heavily in staff development and training. LAR has been recognised as one of the industry’s front runners in relation to operatives, supervisors and management completing the ARCA Competency Scheme.

In line with new guidance LAR has also moved towards a more proactive approach to staff development and has invested a significant amount of effort in developing an industry leading Training Needs Analysis system.

The significant developments in LAR’s team have been recently recognised by the ARCA Gold Training Award, the National Training Award and ARCA Gold Site Audit Award. Special recognition was achieved by securing the ARCA Gold Site Audit award for the fifth consecutive year – the only contractor in the UK to reach this achievement.

Proud to be leading the way in the safe removal of asbestos and other hazardous materials. Operating an extensive range of professional services for both national and international clients.

Our services

LAR has the resources and infrastructure in place to offer a solution to any asbestos abatement project. Through long-standing strategic partnerships, we offer our clients a range of associated services that work seamlessly with our asbestos removal works in order to offer a total solution.

Services undertaken in-house: asbestos removal, asbestos encapsulation, asbestos in soils, asbestos waste collection, asbestos decontamination, face fit testing, pigeon guano removal, reinstatement works, sharps removals and soft strip demolition.

Services undertaken via strategic partners: UKAS accredited asbestos surveys (management, refurbishment and demolition), air testing, bulk samples, asbestos awareness training, demolition, decommissioning, dismantling, land remediation, contaminated land assessments, duct cleaning and licenced scaffolding.

We offer all of the above on an emergency-call out basis, 24/7.

Watch the video, below, it shows us working with one of our strategic partners to install a scaffold access system at Manchester Town Hall as part of a multi-million asbestos removal project.

Project examples

LAR has experience of operating across a diverse range of market sectors on both a national and international scale. A significant percentage of work undertaken is generated from repeat business from long-standing client relationships. Our ethos of working with clients in order to fully understand their requirements and tailoring solutions to suit their individual needs, has resulted in repeat business year on year for over 20 years.

Higher Education

The Higher Education sector forms one of the largest sources of repeat business for LAR. The size, age and complexity of university estates ensures LAR has an almost continuous presence on some of the UK’s campuses.

Public sector (OJEU contracts)

LAR has made a concerted effort to secure long-term public sector work which is tendered via the Official Journal of the Europen Union. Although competition often comes from contractors all over the UK, LAR has secured a number of high-profile contracts based upon both quality and pricing submissions.

Retail/leisure

The retail sector has been specifically targeted by LAR as an area of growth in recent years and has seen the business awarded approved contractor and framework status with a number of high-profile organisations. We have adapted to this unique sector and developed systems for working within a highly challenging environment. We now service a large number of multi-site retailers on a national scale from both a planned and reactive call-out perspective.

NHS

The NHS has historically been a strong sector for LAR. Similarl to Higher Education, this sector has large property portfolios of diverse building types and ultimately many buildings with asbestos still present within them.

Local authority

Separate to the OJEU tendered contracts, LAR undertakes a significant amount of public sector work via local authority construction partners and main contractors. Some of the largest projects which LAR has undertaken have been within this sector.

International

Through undertaking projects of significant size and complexity within the UK, LAR has been identified as a business which has the capabilities and resources to take the high standards of the UK industry to the international marketplace.

Utilities 

The utilities sector has been one of the largest sectors of growth for LAR in recent years. We now service clients across all sub sectors which include water, gas, electricity, petro-chemical and nuclear.

Whatever the task, we can handle it.

Rest assured, we have the resources and infrastructure in place to offer a solution to any asbestos abatement project. Through long-standing strategic partnerships, we also have the ability to offer our clients a range of associated services that can work seamlessly with our asbestos removal works in order to offer a total solution.

Our promise

LAR will continue moving forward, innovating, practicing best standards and staying ahead of legislation in order to consolidate our position at the very forefront of the asbestos removal industry. Alongside this we will be continuing to raise the bar in terms of staff development, site standards and Health and Safety. We aim to continue developing long-term relationships with regional, national and international organisations as well as helping businesses to remain compliant.
