This Survey allows for effective management of Asbestos Containing Materials, to risk assess, and to develop a strategy should further refurbishment or demolition works become necessary. We have professional P402 Surveyor’s who carry out the out surveys. They will give you advice on where Asbestos might be on your property, and will carry out a free assessment, first to establish if you have any Asbestos. Then we will perform a walkabout initial survey and if required take samples of suspect materials which will be taken to a trusted UKAS laboratory for analysis and checking. As per the HSE document "HSG264 Asbestos: The survey guide", we carry out two types of surveys: Management Surveys: This is a standard asbestos survey with the purpose to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect Asbestos Containing Materials in the building during normal occupancy. Demolition / Refurbishment Surveys: This survey is required before any refurbishment or demolition work is to be carried out. It is more intrusive and this survey uses more Invasive methods in order to access areas, which would normally be classed as inaccessible within a management survey The survey report will ideally include the following information: Scope, type and extent of the survey The locations with identified or presumed ACMs Areas not accessed which will be specific to the survey and not generic ACMs with high material assessment scores Survey results including tables, marked-up plans and material assessment results Data to prepare an Asbestos Register (if required) Clear notes on any actions and priorities.
This is a standard survey. Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building. Management surveys will often involve minor intrusive work and some disturbance.
This survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. It is a full access survey with sampling to quantify all Asbestos based materials prior to removal. Structural damage may occur during this type of survey.
