Asbestos Surveys Leicester, East Midlands And Surrounding Areas

 

Asbestos surveys can be one of two types:

 

Management Survey


This type of survey is the most common form of asbestos survey undertaken. Its purpose is to locate, as far as is reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect asbestos containing materials in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, to assess their condition.

 

The survey will usually involve sampling and analysis to confirm the presence of asbestos.

 

Refurbishment/Demolition Survey


A Refurbishment/Demolition Survey extends the ‘Management Survey’, to include investigations into all reasonable accessible sealed voids and the fabric of the building.

 

This survey includes breaking through partition walls, ceilings etc to confirm the presence or absence of asbestos and, normally, this is carried out prior to demolition or refurbishment work where significant damage to the building will not be a problem. This will result in damage to stud partition walls, plasterboard ceilings, wood riser covers, doors, computer floors, carpets, kitchens, bathrooms etc. The damage caused by this type of survey is kept to a minimum, but in some cases requires reinstatement, which is not included in the survey unless pre-arranged. A Refurbishment/Demolition Survey shall only be carried out if safe to do so – for example, if there are live services inside a building, access may not be possible to certain areas, and may require a further visit in the future.
