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.
Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Surveys
For extensive refurbishment or the demolition of a building, a refurbishment / demolition survey will need to be carried out. A refurbishment and demolition survey's main aim is to reduce harm and risk-level to the workers or contractors that are carrying out the work on buildings with the presence of asbestos. This survey was previously known as a 'Type 3 survey'.
Alternatively, to eliminate the risk completely we can offer a professional asbestos removal service.
What type of asbestos survey do I need?
When preparing to demolish a building or a major refurbishment project; a refurbishment / demolition asbestos survey will be required to distinguish whether any asbestos containing materials are present within the building or not. This kind of survey is incredibly thorough and includes destruction inspection methods to locate any asbestos containing materials that are present in hidden spaces, such as in ceiling voids or under floor coverings.
What is the purpose of the survey?
A Refurbishment / Demolition survey uses destructive and invasive techniques to ascertain the presence and location of all asbestos containing materials in the building. It is important to have this kind of survey done to ensure that all asbestos containing materials are found that are not visible to the naked eye or at surface level. Loft spaces, wall cavities, floor voids and spaces behind cladding will all need to be checked.
Why do I need a survey?
It is essential to commission a Refurbishment / Demolition asbestos survey for companies and individuals who are planning major renovation work or the demolition of an older building. Ensuring that building contractors you employ are aware of the presence of asbestos containing materials and can take preventative measures to minimize any risk for site workers. We offer re-inspections on buildings which have previously had a refurbishment/demolition survey.
