Why Bombs Away?

Genuine assessment of UXO risk on construction sites

Unexploded ordnance UXO UXB bomb risk assessment Dynasafe BACTEC MACC 1st Line Defence CIRIA C681

Bombs Away is unlike any other specialist unexploded ordnance (UXO) risk assessment company in the UK - 

we do not offer any site based risk mitigation services and always strive to achieve low risk status.  

We will independently assess the probability of encountering UXO on sites in the UK and the consequences of finding it. 

Unlike too many UXO clearance companies, we will never recommend unnecessary mitigation and sell you expensive, time consuming and unnecessary services.

Cheap risk assessments are subsidised by expensive risk mitigation measures.

We will minimise your costs.
