Architect exposes builder to asbestos danger

An architects’ practice has been prosecuted after builders were potentially exposed to dangerous asbestos fibres during construction work at a Rugby Club.

Aberystwyth Magistrates heard that Dilwyn Roberts Penseiri/Architects Ltd failed to pass on vital information about the presence of asbestos insulation board to builders before they removed soffits from an end wall at the clubhouse in January 2012.

Although an asbestos survey was commissioned by the rugby club and sent to the architects, this was never shown to the contractors even though it clearly identified the presence of asbestos insulation board.

When the work was tendered in August 2011, the practice prepared the pre-construction information and advised that an asbestos survey had identified asbestos cement in the soffits, but failed to mention the asbestos insulating board.

Unlike asbestos cement products, asbestos insulation board requires removal by licenced companies under strictly controlled conditions.

In January 2012, the building contractor removed the soffits on the end wall but had not recognised the material as asbestos boards.
