Asbestos R&D survey – The Retreat, York.

Opened in 1796 by William Tuke, a retired tea merchant, the original Retreat was intended to be a place where members of The Society of Friends (Quakers) who were experiencing mental distress could come and recover in an environment that would be both familiar and sympathetic to their needs. Some years earlier, a Leeds Quaker, Hannah Mills, had died in the squalid and inhumane conditions that then prevailed in the York Asylum, and appalled at this Tuke and his family vowed that never again should any Quaker be forced to endure such treatment.

The client at this prestigious hospital is in the process of a full refurbishment of one of it’s wings. In order for this to go ahead a complete asbestos R&D survey was required to all levels of the wing, including the undercroft where asbestos pipework was previously known to have been installed. Ranson Surveying carried out these survey works, and advised the client and the builders subsequently on the extensive programme of asbestos removal works, which needed to be carried out before the building firm could carry out the refurbishment safely.
