G&L Consultancy

Since its inception in 1998, G&L Consultancy Ltd has become one of the United Kingdom’s leading asbestos consultancies.

G&L Consultancy Ltd was founded by two former Somerset County Council workers who saw an opportunity to provide the highest quality service to the people of the South West of England. Since that time, we have grown to in excess of 80 members of staff and have offices near Wellington, Somerset and  Banbridge, Northern Ireland offering the same high-quality service throughout the UK and beyond.

G&L provides the complete asbestos analytical service; everything from surveying Dock Yards and Military Bases to the analysis of a single bulk sample, from a single air test to the complete management of the asbestos removal works of Government Buildings, from free advice to anyone who wants it, to a 24 hour call-out service for anyone who needs it.

At G&L, we believe that Quality and Health & Safety go hand in hand. This is why, when you employ G&L, you can be confident that the Regulations will be strictly applied and no short cuts will be allowed. Asbestos is only dangerous when it is not treated properly and at G&L, we ensure this is never the case.

G&L Company Mission
