We are proud to announce our continued placement on the Scotland Excel Framework.

The framework runs until June 2021, with the option to extend to June 2023.

Lucion’s North East and Scotland Head of Accounts Chris Wilson commented:

“We have already successfully delivered many contracts to customers utilising the Scotland Excel Framework including Dundee City Council, East Lothian Council, Scottish Borders Council and University of Edinburgh. Each client has had a set of specific requirements and varied volumes of work, with our extensive experience in working with a multitude of different framework agreements, we have achieved the clients expectations and delivered the works to the highest standards.”

Our base in Scotland is our Glasgow office, which is one of three offices in our Scotland and North East England Area, the others being Gateshead and Hull. We have a substantial resource of more than 50 BOHS qualified asbestos surveyors and analysts in the area with coverage across all Scottish Counties, including the ability to service the Scottish Highlands and Islands.  

Asbestos Inspection and Testing services are supported by our Operational Support and Laboratory Services team based in Gateshead, which includes in excess of 50 administrators who are dedicated to analysing bulk samples, processing survey data, carrying out quality control and annotating site and floor plans. 

Our laboratory is the largest UKAS ISO 17025 accredited asbestos testing laboratory in the UK which can process up to 1,200 samples a day and is staffed by over 30 BOHS P401 qualified laboratory analysts. This is an unrivalled capacity and means we can deliver large long term survey schemes as well as large one-off projects simultaneously without straining our site or support resources.
