  • Mark and his team at MBC have been amazing and we couldn’t have asked for more. After purchasing a townhouse with a decramastic roof, three storeys up, with a steep pitch and difficult access, we found the roof contained asbestos and needed to be replaced. This was not an easy task and was very daunting to new renovators. Mark walked us through every step of the process, going above and beyond to explain and clarify. The results were amazing and they were accommodating around everyone else involved too. Couldn’t recommend anyone better than the MBC team. It’s great to know the asbestos has been removed safely, giving peace of mind.

  • Mark and his team at MBC have played a key role in the hospital’s major redevelopment after the earthquakes. Numerous buildings had to be responsibly demolished amongst a working hospital over many years. We found MBC to be a very competent organisation for the identification and effective management of hazardous building materials leading into the demolitions. Proactive, strong communicators, and nothing is ever a problem outlook. I enjoy working with them.

  • Dealing with ACM in a school environment can be a difficult proposition as we want to keep all members of the school community safe. Mark and his team have been involved in the demolition and refurbishment of a number of projects. Mark would be the one of the best contractors that I have had the pleasure of working with during my time at Christchurch Boys’ High School. I have nothing but praise for the way MBC works with the client to deliver quality solutions.

  • We found MBC Environmental Solutions to be safety focused, well informed about and understanding of the natural concerns felt by staff in any workplace where asbestos safety is an issue, and responsive to our requests for action that helped allay safety concerns.

    Robin Sutton, Tumuaki
    Hornby High School
  • We have found Mark and his team to be extremely professional in all of our interactions. Happy to answer questions from both the school and our community, Mark was really understanding of the challenges when working within the school environment and consistently demonstrated processes that assured us we could be confident in the safety of our people throughout the time that MBC was on site.

  • Mark and Felicity are a pleasure to work with. They managed the removal of asbestos from two of our older buildings first built in the 1970s. It was a substantial project throughout 5000 sq metres of six-storey buildings and had some uniquely tricky challenges. They came up with good removal methodologies, were excellent communicators and did a great job and all within the allocated time frame. MBC is on our panel of approved removalists and for good reason.

    David Nicholls, project manager
    University of Canterbury
  • Very thorough. We had MBC remove asbestos from existing structures and remediate soils and do survey work in preparation of building new structures. This was a large project at Christchurch Boys High School. MBC have all their boxes ticked which is solid in a rigorous industry like theirs.

  • We were preparing to rebuild the historic Risingholme Homestead in Opawa when an arson attack in 2016 revealed extensive black mould throughout the roof and ceiling cavity. We had Mark and MBC come in and totally remove all of that. It was a massive 3-month undertaking and they did it well. They also helped with asbestos testing and removal from the Risingholme Hall.

  • MBC was recommended to us and they’ve been awesome. One phone call and they get it sorted. We’re residential builders so we need building site compliance and sediment control works and Mark and MBC have been really good at ensuring all that for us. And anything to do with asbestos.

    Michael Cameron, business manager
    Metzger Builders
  • We property manage 280 odd buildings for the Anglican diocese across half the South Island, both commercial and residential. If we suspected asbestos in any of them, Mark and MBC would test and report to us and remove it. I found them very good. Detailed reports and recommendations, very easy to deal with. Nothing was an issue and I have no problem recommending them.

  • Fantastic to deal with and useful from start to finish. Multiple times MBC have assisted us around advice and action on asbestos materials in properties and they’ve always delivered valuable advice.

    James Mullins, business development manager

  • We had asbestos contamination as a result of defective EQC repairs. It was due to failure to perform a controlled removal from our roofing cavities and stippled ceilings. It got everywhere and made the place more hazardous than it had been. We had a claim against EQC and we engaged Mark at MBC to test, identify and quantify the contamination and provide scientific evidence of its cause and effect. Mark’s expert witness evidence was really key to the negotiation process and I think they found him credible and reasonable. We had a confidential settlement agreed shortly after.

    Sam Cowan
  • Mark and MBC tested and identified asbestos within the flooring of our house and had it removed. They had samples tested within 24 hours and five days later their crew had it removed within three days. We’re very happy with their work. They took care of all paperwork and had an independent assessor sign off on the project. Yes, I really would recommend.

  • My experience with MBC is very positive. They’re very reliable and excellent at all their compliances and health & safety processes. Which is very helpful for busy construction firms. They helped us with some asbestos removal from old schools and some specialist mould removal work.

    Kevin McGowan, project manager
    Brosnan Construction
  • MBC undertook some specialist mould removal work with us and asbestos identification and removal. They are tremendously thorough and their project management was superb. They kept us in the loop and their health & safety documentation was mind-blowing actually. I can’t fault them.

  • MBC was recommended to me. Good old word of mouth because they’re very professional, courteous and know what they’re up to. They do a lot of our asbestos identification, removal and clearance work and I’m very happy with it.

    Dan Maguire, managing director
    Amuri Builders
  • One of our most professional contractors during our EQ repair works for homes throughout Canterbury. MBC Environmental Solutions undertook a lot of asbestos removal works for us. Their specialist skills were vital for a very diverse scope of works, including 100 yr old homes. I’d recommend MBC, especially for the specialist stuff.

    Blair Langton, project manager
    Feutz & Goldsmith
  • We’ve worked with Mark and the MBC team for several years now. They remove asbestos and are very good at surveying and environmental control works for building sites. Their knowledge makes life easy for us that’s for sure. They’re professional and accommodating.

    Jim Stenberg, company director
    Jim the Builder
  • My experience with them? Absolutely professional. Good service, they know what they are doing. They’ve done a lot of sediment control plans for us, primarily for residential subdivisions. We need to provide erosion and sediment control plans to councils and MBC are instrumental in providing the design and paperwork for that. They also help us with asbestos testing and removal.

    Paul Wilson, quantity surveyor
    John Creighton Builders
  • Mark and the MBC team are our go-to guys for asbestos removal. They’re very quick to respond, always get the jobs done on time and they’re reliable both in their quoting and their onsite work. Health & Safety are at the forefront of their operation, as it is ours.
