Lucion Environmental has won a contract to work on the demolition of Central Library in Birmingham.

The Wolverhampton-based company is carrying out asbestos surveying, air testing and analytical services on the project which is expected to be completed by the end of 2015 and will see an end to John Madin's famous library.

The work is part of the £500 million, office-led Paradise development and was awarded by principal contractor Carillion which is doing the infrastructure works for the initial phases of the regeneration.

Carillion's project manager Nick Reay said: "Paradise is one of the biggest and most important redevelopment projects currently under way in the country.

"Lucion impressed with their experience together with the ability to deliver an added value solution that will enable us to meet stringent asbestos compliance requirements."

Lucion's West Midlands' regional manager Ross Folley added: "We were delighted to have secured this contract, demonstrating that we have the expertise required to deliver quality asbestos management services for major construction projects."

Lucion Environmental is a national group headquartered in Newcastle which provides environmental risk management services to sectors such as utilities, rail, construction, oil and gas and highways.
