Asbestos removal

McMahon Services is a pioneer in the industry. Since the industries’ inception in the late 1970’s, we have completed over $500 million in asbestos removal, hazardous waste removal and environmental decontamination projects.

Our strong profile and reputation in the industry mean we have worked with authorities, regulatory bodies and government to develop approved codes of practice and safe-work procedures still in use today.

Through ongoing innovation, unparalleled treatment practices, strong compliance, asbestos handling experience, project history, and national reach, our team of trained personnel deliver superior results.

In 2020, the McMahon Services Group of Companies acquired Asurco Roofing and Cladding to expand our capabilities for asbestos roofing and cladding replacement and remediation works.
