Demolition firm to remove asbestos from Palace of Westminster

11 Mar 10 Demolition contractor H Smith has won a contract to remove asbestos at the Palace of Westminster.

Orpington-based Demolition contractor H Smith has won a contract to remove asbestos at the Palace of Westminster.

The deal covers comprehensive asbestos removal, encapsulation and decontamination services throughout the Parliamentary Estate in line with all legal requirements.

The contract follows earlier surveys which suggested asbestos in the 170-year old building may pose a threat to building and maintenance workers.

It is not thought Parliament will need to close during the works.
