Demolition Asbestos Survey

Did you know that any building built or refurbished before the year 2000 could still contain asbestos?

Refurbishment / Demolition Asbestos Survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) in the building and will involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach.

The Demolition Asbestos Survey is primarily designed to identify ACMs so that they can be removed in preparation for Refurbishment or Demolition works.

Asbestos in Buildings

Below are 5 key points you really need to know regarding Asbestos in Buildings:

1) Asbestos only becomes a problem once it’s disturbed and the fibres airborne.
2) Any building built prior to year 2000 can contain Asbestos.
3) Non-domestic buildings must be subject to an Asbestos Survey.
4) There is a legal requirement to remove Asbestos materials prior to Refurbishment or Demolition.
5) Preventing exposure to Asbestos dust will protect against related illness and fatal diseases

Asbestos Law

What’s the worst could happen?

If you own or responsible for a commercial building and you fail to manage the asbestos correctly you could expose individuals to Asbestos fibres resulting in a prosecution. For more information regarding asbestos law then please contact us today.
