“Totally professional. Fast response. Thoroughly knowledgeable. Top quality service. I would have no hesitations recommending Kadec to anyone in need of Asbestos Management advice or training”.
“When they are on site, they do not cause any issues as they understand the site and any restrictions. They are always quick to respond to issues and requests for information. They always work to accommodate our needs”.
“We’ve worked with Kadec on one major project plus several small ones and regard them as experts in their field”.
“I have no problem recommending them to other businesses. I have found the professionalism of the staff plus the service and documents of a high standard”.
“The wealth of knowledge, advice and help that the friendly staff provide is a first-class service”.
With regards to other companies, you are the best company by far – not only are you quick to compile your reports (which are in a easy to understand format and are great for members of staff who are not familiar with surveys, remediation and risk ratings), you are also the best priced. Due to your experience with historical objects and with the Science Museum collection, I feel comfortable with you handling the objects.
Thank you for the excellent training. I think it is the best training I have received while working in the Museum sector – I’d highly recommend it!
