This survey is required to locate asbestos containing materials which could be damaged or disturbed during normal building occupancy or standard maintenance tasks. (Previously known as a type 1 or type 2 asbestos surveys.)
This survey is required prior to refurbishment works and is intrusive into the fabric of your building. Surveys of this type can be completed in specific areas due for refurbishment. i.e. One floor of a multi-storey building. (Previously known as a type 3 asbestos surveys.)
This survey is required prior to the demolition of a building and is fully intrusive into the fabric of the building to be demolished. (Previously known as a type 3 asbestos surveys.)
If asbestos containing materials have been found in your building there is a responsibility to regularly monitor the condition of them. This re-inspection ensures that any materials deteriorating are managed according to the increase in the risk they present.
This survey is designed to maximise value by completing a refurbishment or demolition survey to a specific area, whilst completing a management survey to all other areas of a property to ensure compliance.
This is an exercise where we simply collect a sample from a material and location specified by you. It is appropriate where no survey works are required but analysis is required to confirm the presence of asbestos in a specific material.
