Buckinghamshire Council Asbestos Management
Case Study Summary
Infinity provides Buckinghamshire Council with comprehensive asbestos management services, carrying out management, refurbishment, demolition, and re-inspection surveys on all its buildings, as well as offering asbestos awareness training.
Case Study Overview
Infinity manages Buckinghamshire Council’s property portfolio, which is now in excess of over 650 properties. Management surveys have been carried out on most of the properties, with the remaining sites scheduled.
All properties are managed by reinspection surveys that are carried out at least every 12 months to ensure compliance with regulations, and via the online client portal, used for its estates’ asbestos register. This is where real-time data can be gathered by the council, allowing efficiency both in time and cost savings.
Management and re-inspection surveys are always carried out according to the agreed schedule, while KPIs and refurbishment surveys are always conducted when project leaders are present.
Weekly KPI and monthly contract meetings, ensure regular and consistent communication, enabling all parties to discuss and assess performance collaboratively.
These meetings include verifying that required information is updated on the system, no health and safety issues have occurred, and the contract remains within budget.
Infinity ensures the contract always complies with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, while guaranteeing the council’s requirements are consistently achieved.
