There are two types of asbestos surveys, management and refurbishment/demolition survey.
Management survey is designed to allow duty holder to create asbestos management plan. It is non intrusive survey concentrating on accessible products(ceiling, walls, floor below carpet etc.) It includes material and risk assessment.
Refurbishment and demolition survey, intrusive inspection carried out to detect as far as reasonably practicable asbestos containing products prior to start of refurbishment or demolition works. It greatly reduces risk of potential exposure and allows to plan asbestos removal in advance. Significant number of asbestos containing materials requires removal contractor to notify Health and Safety Executive two weeks before works begin. Depending on location and amount of potential asbestos it can drastically delay the project.
We can also offer combination of both types of survey and carry out Management survey to entire property with targeted refurbishment inspection to specified areas.
At the end of each survey we produce report which includes locations, descriptions and photos of sample locations as well as recommendations and sample analysis report. If need arises we are able to organise asbestos removal.
