- Management Survey (Old Type 1 & type 2 Asbestos Surveys)
- Demolition Survey (Old Type 3 Asbestos Surveys)
- Refurbishment Survey (Old Type 3 Asbestos Surveys)
The aim of the Management Asbestos Survey is to locate and identify the presence of asbestos within the fabric of the building. This is to help prevent people inadvertently disturbing the material, which may create a health risk to themselves and others.
During an asbestos survey, the surveyor will look closely at each aspect of the building with a view to identifying materials suspected as containing asbestos.
Refurbishment carried out in the past might be hiding other surfaces that contain asbestos and for this reason, the surveyor will need to look into suspended ceiling voids, behind doors and into service risers.
Demolition or Refurbishment Asbestos Surveys are conducted when a building (or part of a building) is to undergo refurbishment or demolition.
A full sampling programme is undertaken to identify the types of asbestos present in the building and also to calculate approximate volumes of materials involved.
