Asbestos Surveys we offer.

A standard asbestos survey required  as minimum by asbestos regulations. It is a visual inspections (non intrusive) of the building fabric for any asbestos containing materials. Inspection areas will include voids, risers, etc (where practicable to do without causing extensive damage.
This survey type is required prior (Legal requirement) to any intrusive refurbishment / renovation works. Its purpose is to locate and describe, as far as possible, all asbestos containing materials (ACMs) within the scope of refurbishment. By nature these types of survey are intrusive and, to a degree, destructive. The survey is intrusive and destructive to enable identification of possible material behind surface fabrics.
This type of survey is fully intrusive and destructive and is used where the building is to be demolished entire. The purpose of the survey is to locate and describe all asbestos containing materials (ACMs) within that building or even part of building.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations requires that the condition of known asbestos containing materials (ACMs) must be inspected regularly and records updated accordingly. The asbestos re-inspection survey must be carried on a regular basis, not exceeding 12 months. The frequency of re-inspection depends on the level of risk posed by the material. The risk is assessed by the type, extent, condition and location of the asbestos.
Asbestos sampling is where a sample of suspect material is taken for lab analysis to confirm or refute asbestos content. Our surveyors will attend site and sample the material, which then analysed by a UKAS accredited lab.
