Asbestos | Survey
It's important to undertake Asbestos Survey's and Removals in accordance with the Control of asbestos regulations 2012. In 2017, there were 2,523 deaths from the asbestos related cancer Mesothelioma. Our clients are provided with safe, cost effective solutions for Asbestos management and Asbestos Survey and Removal.
There are two types of Asbestos Surveys:
- Asbestos Management Survey; A standard survey on a building built or refurbished before 2000. The survey as far as reasonably possible identifies the existence or suspected presence of asbestos containing material (ACM), which could be disturbed during occupancy and general maintenance.
- Pre-Refurbishment and Demolition Survey (R&D) This is an inspection to ensure we access all areas and ascertain the amount and type of ACM present. The survey enables full removal of ACM from the building before any refurbishment or demolition takes place. This is a legal requirement and done poorly can result in unexpected costs and health hazards.

Is asbestos in my building dangerous? If you are worried about asbestos in your property, don't panic. As long as the material is in good condition and fibres are not being disturbed, it is safe. Asbestos is only dangerous once disturbed and the fibres are airborne.
If you suspect asbestos is damaged or, you are making changes to your house that will disturb asbestos, subsequently contact our expert asbestos team for advice on removal and disposal.
How do you know whether it is made of asbestos?
Unfortunately, you cannot tell whether material contains asbestos by simply looking at it. If it’s not labelled and you’re in doubt, then treat it as asbestos or have it analysed by a qualified professional. Please note, only a licensed professional should handle samples.
