Aspect Contracts Limited

Aspect specialises in providing reliable and consistent rapid response service to clients on a nationwide basis, often under long term framework agreements. It operates a fleet of 128 vans and 87 decontamination units and employs 168 asbestos remediation operatives and 23 surveyors and inspectors.

Aspect provides a full range of asbestos risk management and remediation services to its clients. Services provided include:

Asbestos remediation 83 % of sales:
Surveying 5% of sales:
Inspections 5%
Waste Collection and Transfer 3%
Equipment Supplies 3% of sales
Training <1% of sales

Aspect is the preferred or sole contractor with many clients, most of whom have had relationships with Aspect over many years and are repeat customers. A commercial or social housing job can range from circa £2,000 to £1 million and above. Larger jobs tend to be tendered and involve more operatives over longer periods.

Aspect is one of only three asbestos remediation service providers capable of offering nationwide coverage

The nature of the work and the client engagement process will vary depending on the type of client Aspect is dealing with. The three main client groups are described below, and may involve both the provision of inspections and surveying services as well as the core removal and disposal service.


An insurance job in domestic premises typically takes two man days within standard agreed charge
Aspect has national framework agreements with a number of insurance and loss adjuster clients

Social Housing

A job for a local authority client relating to social housing will typically include type two surveys and the removal of ACMs from council housing properties either on an incident response basis or as part of a scheduled maintenance or upgrade programme.

Commercial Projects
Commercial projects vary greatly. A project could involve stripping all ACMs from a building prior to demolition or removing ACMs prior to an office refurbishment or redevelopment. All removal activities are undertaken in a temporary controlled environment as described above.
These jobs can take many weeks or months to complete and generally require high levels of project management skills required to ensure efficient use of resource and timely and profitable completion. As a major national contractor, Aspect has the necessary infrastructure to undertake these projects, which local competitors will not necessarily possess.


Clients can be split into the following sectors:

Insurance – loss adjusters, claims handlers, repair maintenance contractors;
Social housing – local authority housing stock, defence estates, serviced family accommodation;
Healthcare – hospitals, clinics, NHS Trusts;
Education – schools, colleges, universities;
Construction, refurbishment and demolition – construction companies, developers and demolition contractors; and
Other - waste disposal, surveyors, consultants, court services.

Mission Statement

Aspect Contracts aim to be the leading asbestos removal and risk management service provider of preference for the claims management and loss adjusting industry.

Our emphasis will be to invest in our staff and they will be actively encouraged and rewarded for their commitment, loyalty, innovation, and personal initiative.
The investment in the best technical equipment, resources, training, and materials will be a continual priority objective.
The network of regional offices will also be extended enable us to deliver the most cost effective asbestos removal service and risk management service within the United Kingdom.
Aspect Contracts will be focussed on customer care and service delivery. We will monitor and maintain our services standards and develop open, long term and sustainable partnering relationship

Aura Graphics Limited

In July 2011, Supersine Duramark Limited's parent company; Supersine Holdings Group Limited acquired Fenn Graphics Limited. As a result of this acquisition, the group restructured and Supersine Duramark Limited changed its name to Aura Graphics Ltd in January 2012. Aura Graphics Ltd now operates with three brand divisions; SSDM, Fenn Graphics and Aura Services (application division created from both SSDM and Fenn Graphics applications teams).

Prior to these changes Supersine Duramark Limited was formed in 1994 as the result of a merger between Supersine Limited and Duramark Limited. The original company’s origins date back to 1927.

Aura Graphics continually strives to maintain its position as market leader and Best-in-Breed. This obviously extends to its clients. After all, Aura Graphics only achieves recognition for its own work through the implementation of its clients’ brands.
While on-site, Aura Graphics employees are well-presented, well-organised, well-equipped. As such, they present themselves as ambassadors not only for Aura Graphics but also for the client. In addition to this, employees are used to working in environments where they meet the general public (in banks, C-Stores, etc.). Their levels of service and comportment reflect well on the company and the client.
Quite apart form the direct perception of the public, Aura Graphics also strives to provide the client with latest products, services and sustainable solutions. These are used by the client to demonstrate to their own public sustainable and technological initiatives.
Such initiatives come from all over the world – from suppliers, partner manufacturers, customers, etc. – representing true innovation within the graphics industry.

Axis Cleaning and Support Services Ltd

Our history spans into the last century, with recently reaching 25 years for the original London Property Maintenance business (LPM). We have now developed into a successful national group providing a wide range of essential Support Services for business providing cleaning and support services to over 1000 locations nationwide.

With investment and support from Sovereign Capital since 2006 the Group has an ambitious growth strategy. Organic growth is being supplemented by carefully chosen acquisitions in specifically targeted markets.

We are straightforward in all our relationships. We have a solutions orientated approach to our business and our customers. We have respect for, and value, everyone's contribution, whilst enjoying what we do. We strive to create an environment in which our people are valued and recognised for their contribution to our success - a meritocracy.

The ACSS way is a consistent process as well as a winning mentality.

Our accreditations include:
ISO 9001
ISO 14001
SIA Approved Contractor Status
National Britannia SAFEcontractor
Group Philosophy

Our approach to major contracts such as this can be summarised through our strap line
“National strength, local pride”
We still retain the look and feel of local, regional companies with regional management teams who know their customers, see them regularly, and can empathise with the problems that those customers face - We have an understanding of local issues.

Overlaid on this series of regional teams is a national management structure which has many years of experience within the service sector, brought together by the AXIS Group with the specific aim of creating a national infrastructure, including robust systems and processes, to enable the regional management teams to thrive and expand in a controlled and meaningful fashion.

ACSS is keen to own the industry “middle ground” - the area where regional companies are often too small or ill-funded to cope with the demands of major projects such as this one, or where multi-national companies do not pay a contract of this size the respect that it deserves because of the pressures of their myriad other contracts.
This is the area where Axis Cleaning and Support Services excels – we are ‘national’ enough to cope with the varying demands of a major contract such as this, but we are ‘local’ enough to care. We genuinely care about our partnerships and our clients and it shows in all we do.
Within Axis Cleaning and Support Services we have built our business rapidly by ensuring that we acquire companies and contracts that fit with our long term plan; we are totally committed to retaining the talented resource that our acquisitions and buy and build strategy have provided us with as we are fully cognisant of the benefits that long terms relationships with our clients can provide for both parties.
Our operations are based on using the best information available, and the interrogation of that data to guide decisions. Our ACSS Essentials programme provides clear cleaning instruction for key tasks. Using photos and words to guide employees to carry out tasks effectively, Essentials builds in Lean management techniques to improve operational efficiency and consistency. The programme will reduce the number of cleaning products in use on our sites from 200+ to (in most cases) only 3. By simplifying our operations, and our training, our operators and supervisors are better able to concentrate on the standard of work being achieved. – I.e “have I done a good job?” rather than “how do I do this job? We are in discussion with both City and Guilds to certify our training to NVQ level 2 as a baseline. We use the National Occupational Standards for cleaning, produced by Asset Skills as a guide to our training packages – including higher levels for supervisory and management staff to assist in clear staff development plans.
