The use of asbestos has been banned in the UK since the 1990s, but the unfortunate truth is that action has been taken far too late.

Hundreds have been struck by the fatal lung conditions that lead on from asbestos exposure, and it is estimated by the British Lung Foundation that 14 million homes contain asbestos. With the constant threat of exposure to this deadly substance, it is more vital than ever that only experts come into contact with it.

Asbestos can lurk in old installations, wall panelling, boiler cupboards, floor tiles and many other inconspicuous parts of your household. Many properties are affected and when the asbestos is disturbed it needs to be cleaned as soon as possible.

When looking for public tenders concerning asbestos, you must bring forth a flawless bid as there is no room for even the smallest errors when it comes to dealing with this hazardous material. That’s where Thornton & Lowe comes in. We assist you in putting forward the best image of your company, helping you prepare for your PQQ and offering assistance throughout the full tender process.

We have supported our clients to win contracts with universities, local authorities, housing associations and Central Government, to name but a few.

Bid writing assistance

If you’re unsure how to write a proposal, our expert team of bid writers will ensure you meet the standard necessary to win private and public sector contracts. We will proofread and implement a house style to ensure everyone working on each document follows the same tone and terminology across the board.

If you’re yet to find the perfect bid writer, we can help by shortlisting candidates and hosting interviews for you. Holding your own recruitment process takes time and interrupts other more pressing tasks. Our years of experience means we know exactly what makes a great bid writer and we’ll find you the perfect person to join your team.

Bid Management on Your Terms

We aim to be as flexible as possible to ensure we meet your needs. You can work with us in two ways:

Interim services – Work with us if and when you need us. You can contact us on an ad hoc basis for consultations on your next move.

Contracted bid support – Book a certain amount of hours per month for us to focus on your bids. This tends to suit businesses that are working towards multiple contracts and need more consistent tender management.

Innovative Software

The Thornton & Lowe Tender Library is an essential bid management tool. We found that other software on the market didn’t fit our needs, so we created our own programme and it has been a great success for our clients.
