WITNESS APPEAL: Did you work in the construction of the Barbican Centre between 1978 and 1980?
Our specialist asbestos claims team has been instructed by Trevor Merrell who has developed mesothelioma, an asbestos related cancer.
Mr Merrell worked as an electrician’s mate for Drake and Scull during the construction of the Barbican Centre between 1978 and 1980. He can recall using asbestos insulation board to box in electrical wires, cables and conduits.
Other trades and companies were working alongside Drake and Scull employees during this time, and information from anyone who spent time working at the Barbican Centre during this period would be greatly appreciated.
If anyone has any knowledge of the use of asbestos during the construction of the Barbican Centre, then please do get in touch and tell us what you remember.
