Our team of professional experienced surveyors are fully trained in accordance with the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS)’s P402 Building Surveys and Bulk Sampling qualification. Undertaking asbestos management surveys, refurbishment/pre demolition surveys, asbestos bulk sampling/testing, asbestos awareness training along with re-inspection surveys assisting our customers to comply with current legislation. If you have any questions about the need for a survey, or the process involved, please contact us for details.
Its purpose is to detect the presence of any suspect asbestos containing materials in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy. Our report will demonstrate, the location, condition, volume and type of asbestos contained within the material sampled.
The survey will usually involve sampling and analysis to confirm the presence or absence of asbestos. To ensure a cost effective approach to our clients, if the material sampled is found to contain asbestos, other similar materials used in the same way can be presumed to be the same material, therefore reducing the overall cost of the survey.
A refurbishment and demolition survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition 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 work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned.
Refurbishment and demolition surveys are intended to locate all the asbestos in the building as far as reasonably practicable, and may need to destructively penetrate all parts of the building structure. A full sampling programme is undertaken to identify possible asbestos containing materials and to estimate the volume and surface area of the material identified.
