Asbestos Management Survey

This is the cornerstone to your asbestos management plan. Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACM's within a building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition.

Pre-refurbishment / Demolition Survey

This type of survey aims to find the asbestos behind surfaces which will be affected anyway during repairs, maintenance, alterations or demolition. Typically, the survey criteria involves intrusive, investigative and destructive means. The premise behind this type of survey is that the structure is either being demolished or is being significantly refurbished.

The release of asbestos fibres in the air can be a major concern, whether it is by accident or carelessness. Few workplace events are as alarming. Fortunately, we are well positioned to be able to provide emergency response air testing with on-site analysis. This means minds can be quickly eased or prompt action to close down problems at the earliest opportunity.

Air monitoring is also used during our asbestos removal work to detect leaks from working enclosures and to reassure people living or working nearby that no risks are arising from working practices in operation.

After asbestos has been removed, repaired or environmentally cleaned, we recommend air monitoring in some cases, and it is mandatory in others.

We can therefore offer airborne fibre sampling in conjunction with our removal projects in the following areas:

  • Four-stage clearance monitoring
  • Reassurance monitoring and inspection
  • Background monitoring
  • Personal exposure monitoring
  • Leak (enclosure integrity check) monitoring

Case Studies


Suspect Material in Loft at a Bungalow in Much Wenlock

The problem:

As part of the Warm Front Grant, installers had refused to enter a loft and install insulation in a bungalow as a material suspected of containing asbestos had been spotted.

The solution:

One of our experts attended the property in order to take a sample of the suspect material for asbestos analysis. The sample proved to contain no asbestos, the certificate was provided to the installation company and the insulation was installed shortly after.

Pre-refurbishment Asbestos Survey at Cosford

The problem:

Part of the property had become slightly water damaged through a leak in the water tank. The house was still occupied but in need of a major refurbishment as part of the main clients property portfolio improvement scheme. The survey company required several wall cavities to be inspected and the damage to be temporarily repaired.

The solution:

We undertook the intrusive elements of the asbestos survey as directed by the lead surveyor and then repaired the holes and cleaned the adjacent areas which were sufficient for continued occupancy of the tenant.
