Boiler Decommissioning

We have safely dismantled and removed over 500 industrial boilers from all manner of live businesses and properties including schools, universities, hospitals, residential care homes and industrial premises.

With this work predominantly taking place in plant rooms/boiler houses the two main hazards confronted with are confined space working and the safe and legal removal of the asbestos associated with the dismantling of a redundant boiler. We hold a current hazardous waste carriers licence and are trained in confined space working and removal of asbestos, so from the legal removal through to the legal disposal of asbestos Metals and Plant Ltd have it covered.
