Trusted Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys
As stated in the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, all asbestos containing materials must be removed from an area or building before refurbishment or total demolition work can commence. Therefore, as the name suggests, an asbestos refurbishment or demolition survey is an essential step in many different building projects.
The main purpose of such a survey can vary. In the case of a refurbishment survey, it is imperative to locate and describe all asbestos containing materials in the specific area to be refurbished. This process will be extended to the whole building for a full demolition survey. The resulting survey report will become a crucial document in the process of arranging asbestos removal and, by extension, ensuring the smooth continuation of building works.
Asbestos refurbishment and demolition surveys are fully intrusive and may involve destructive inspection in order to access all areas, including those that are difficult to reach. Such areas will need to be unoccupied, minimising the risk of exposure to airborne asbestos fibres.
Before people can return to a property, it must be shown to be fit for reoccupation. This involves a thorough visual inspection and, if needed, reassurance air sampling with disturbance.
