What We Offer

Survey Types

Asbestos Management Surveys

A management survey is the standard survey. Management surveys locate all existing asbestos within the internal and external parts of the building. Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect asbestos containing material (ACM) in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition.

Refurbishment Asbestos Surveys

A refurbishment survey is required before any refurbishment work is carried out. This type of survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all ACMs in the area where the refurbishment work will take place. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach. A refurbishment survey may also be required in other circumstances, eg when more intrusive maintenance and repair work will be carried out.

Demolition Asbestos Survey

This type of survey is used to locate and describe all ACMs in the whole building if demolition is planned. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve aggressive inspection techniques, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach.

Asbestos Re-Inspection Services

Where asbestos containing materials (ACMs) have been identified, periodic inspection is required which is normally undertaken on an annual basis. This ensures compliance to regulation and also the safety of people using the property, with clients receiving a report detailing any changes as well as amended recommendations.

We have set-up formal service level agreements with a number of BS/EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 UKAS accredited laboratories to ensure our service offerings  are totally impartial to our clients. This arrangement works well in practice, providing clients with a seamless survey through to abatement process while demonstrating impartiality through third party involvement.
