VertaseFLI was employed by the Highways Agency through their
Maintenance Contactor BBMM to provide 24hr emergency response on the Area 2
Highways Network covering the South West region.
As part of the highways maintenance operations, asbestos
management surveys of all structures that could potentially contain asbestos were
undertaken. VertaseFLI was contracted to undertake both management surveys and
demolition surveys, as well as the removal of Asbestos Containing Materials
(ACM) during maintenance works, or ACM materials that had been fly tipped.
