Understanding the Need for an Asbestos Demolition Survey:
Prior to the demolition of any building constructed before 1999, an Asbestos Demolition Survey is not just recommended, it’s legally mandated. This survey serves as a vital safeguard against the health risks associated with asbestos exposure during demolition activities. The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (Regulation 7) underscores the importance of identifying and managing asbestos-containing materials before undertaking any demolition work.
Tailored Solutions for Every Project:
At Environmental Inspection, we recognise that each demolition project is unique. Our experienced team understands the intricacies of various demolition methods and their potential asbestos risks. We offer a personalised approach to asbestos demolition surveys, adapting our methodologies to suit the specific requirements of your project.
Our Comprehensive Inspection and Testing Process:
Our Asbestos Demolition Survey follows a meticulous and methodical process to ensure accuracy and safety.
We initiate the process by thoroughly evaluating project documents and historical records to understand the building’s construction history and potential asbestos risks.
Our experienced team conducts on-site inspections, utilising both visual assessments and intrusive investigations to identify suspect asbestos-containing materials. We meticulously inspect areas that might be covered or hidden, leaving no stone unturned in uncovering potential hazards.
Sample Collection and Analysis:
If we encounter materials suspected to contain asbestos, samples are carefully collected following industry best practices. These samples are then sent to an independent UKAS-accredited laboratory for precise analysis. The integrity of this testing process is essential in determining the presence of asbestos and its potential risk.
Integrating the Survey into Your Project Timeline:
Our Asbestos Demolition Survey isn’t just a formality, it’s a crucial step in your project’s timeline. By identifying potential asbestos-containing materials early, you can make informed decisions about demolition methodologies, timelines, and safety protocols.
