Asbestos Audit Ltd were commissioned by one of the North East biggest house builders to assist with an ongoing project on the outskirts of Newcastle.
The new housing estate is currently under development. Excavation works to the new roadways and services were well underway when one of the machine operators noticed something different in his bucket. The material turned out to be asbestos within the soil.
