We required an urgent survey on a property we are planning to purchase. Tony was very helpful to accommodate us and the results had returned quicker than expected, so all in all a great service - many thanks.
Commercial & Domestic Asbestos Surveying ServicesHSG264
It is well known that asbestos was used in building materials from the 1950’s onwards. It was in the late 1990’s that it was finally banned as a building material. In many cases asbestos can remain safely in a building and never cause harm. However as soon as it is disturbed, then it can become a very serious health hazard.
ICEAsbestos undertake surveys for asbestos containing materials (ACM), whilst ensuring that our work remains in accordance with the HSE document HSG264 surveyors guide.
Our services are available to domestic and commercial clients across the UK and can be tailored to your specific needs, including emergency call-outs and out-of-hours facilities. Our domestic and commercial surveying services include:
- Management surveys
- Refurbishment and demolition surveys
- Asbestos Survey re-inspection and revisits
- Testing and bulk sampling
A management survey is carried out to identify the presence of asbestos within a building. A surveyor’s will identify any visual hazardous material and take a sample. The sample is analyzed and you will receive a full Asbestos survey report containing details on the type of asbestos identified; the location and condition; the level of risk to users of the building, and recommendations on the asbestos identified.
A refurbishment/demolition survey is carried out if you are planning to make structural changes to internal walls, extensive refurbishment or demolition of a building. Samples are taken and analyzed and you will receive a full Asbestos survey report containing details on the type of asbestos identified; the location and condition; the level of risk to users of the building, and recommendations on the asbestos identified.
Asbestos Testing and Bulk Sampling
If you suspect you have found an asbestos containing material (ACM), samples will be taken and tested samples will be taken and tested at a UKAS accredited laboratory to confirm whether the suspected ACM is actually an ACM. You receive a certificate of results for the analysed samples to confirm the presence of asbestos in the sample.
Fast track sampling is available giving you results within 24 hours, fast track surveys are also available with a 48-72 hour turnaround
We can arrange a time that suits you to take a sample; you can choose to provide samples yourself. In both instances, we provide you with a fast track sampling service that can speed up the process of identifying ACM and reduce site down time.
