Welcome to Kadec - The UK's Leading Experts for Asbestos Management in the Museums, Heritage & Historic Objects Sector!

Preserving our history and ensuring the safe display of objects in museums is crucial for telling stories about our past and informing the future. However, managing asbestos in museums can be a challenging process, especially when working with historic buildings and precious objects. At Kadec, we understand the unique complexities involved in asbestos management within the museums, heritage, and historic objects sector.
With our unrivalled experience and expertise, Kadec is dedicated to providing comprehensive asbestos assessment and risk management services tailored specifically to the needs of museums. From initial assessment to project completion, our qualified asbestos inspectors are experienced in inspecting and assessing museum buildings, plant equipment, and old objects. We pay meticulous attention to historically important and grade-listed locations, minimising damage while maximising the value of our thorough reports.
What sets Kadec apart is our deep understanding of both estates and collections departments. This knowledge and experience are reflected in our ability to create guidelines for Asbestos Management for historic objects, as showcased in our contributions to 'HSG264 Asbestos - The Survey Guide.' We strive to ensure the safe preservation of historic artefacts, providing museums with the necessary tools and information to effectively manage asbestos risks.
Our mission at Kadec is simple: to make Asbestos Management easier, safer, and more cost-effective. We proudly serve the entire UK and beyond from our base in Essex, offering our expert services to museums, heritage sites, and historic buildings nationwide. As a family-run business, we are dedicated to delivering excellence from day one, providing personalised and reliable solutions to our clients.
At Kadec, we prioritise the preservation of history while keeping safety at the forefront. Our team of specifically trained professionals understands the delicate balance between protecting valuable objects and managing asbestos risks. We take pride in our unique assessment experience in the museums, heritage, and historic objects sector, ensuring that the stories of our past can be shared with future generations.
To make the process even more convenient, we offer an Assessment Checklist called PaRAC, which can be conducted by collections staff to help identify potential Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs). This empowers museums to actively participate in the management of asbestos, ensuring the safety of both staff and visitors.
Whether you require an asbestos inspection, risk assessment, or guidance on managing asbestos in your museum, Kadec is here to assist you. Our friendly and knowledgeable team is ready to answer any questions you may have and provide tailored solutions to meet your specific needs. We are committed to making the asbestos management process as smooth and hassle-free as possible, allowing you to focus on preserving history with peace of mind.
