Foxglove Contracting Limited was employed by Campbell Buchanan Limited, on behalf of Luminus Housing Association, to carry out removal of asbestos insulation under controlled conditions and then the careful controlled demolition of all buildings and processing of site-won materials for the clients’ re-use on the construction phase that followed.

The works were carried out in two phases and all works were completed to the full satisfaction of clients.
