This intrusive inspection endeavours to describe all ACMS identified within the premises. This requires full access to all areas and may, by necessity, cause some destruction to property and possible interruption to operational activities. This level of survey precedes demolition.
Our advisor will suggest the most appropriate survey based on the preliminary assessment of the premises, its pattern of use and future plans for the building. All surveys are supported by photographic records and contain a recommended action plan to enable compliance with current regulations.
All our asbestos surveying work is carried out to HSE Standard HSG 264 surveying and sampling requirements for assessment of asbestos containing materials.
Most surveys are made to comply with the law. This means that every possible effort is made to locate ACMS (asbestos containing materials) present in a building to enable the management responsible to control the risk.
If a survey is deemed necessary, the type of survey and the appropriate report format is established and agreed. One of the key considerations is the obtaining of samples and avoiding, or minimising, operational activities.
With the latter in mind, we offer three types of surveys: Asbestos Management Survey, Refurbishment Survey, Pre Demolition Survey.
