In addition to asbestos removal, our team will also provide surveys, inspections, testing, audits and full assessments of every property. This allows us to identify and locate the substance on any property, before making a safe removal or putting management plans in place to prevent it spreading or becoming active. The two types of surveys available are:
- Management Survey
- Demolition/ Refurbishment Survey
Management surveys are used to locate the presence and extent of materials containing asbestos in your property. They will evaluate whether this could be disturbed, assessing its condition and whether any action should be taken. Management surveys will also involve minor work for sampling and analysis to confirm the presence and if this can not be done, materials are presumed to contain it.
Refurbishment and demolition surveys are a legal requirement for many properties within the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. Before any refurbishment or demolition takes place, a survey should be completed to fully investigate whether refurbishment and demolition is safe or whether it will be released if this construction work was to take place. It is important to have these surveys completed as any work could lead to the fibrous material becoming active.
Both surveys will help to identify whether your property contains the substance and will deliver a detailed report on the possible solutions for the building. If you only require management surveys, plans can be put in place to keep it in its current condition where it causes no harm. However, removal will be needed if you are looking to complete renovations and demolitions and it is found in your property.
