Asbestos Removal Kent
Searching for an Asbestos Removal Contractor in Kent?
If you are a owner of a building built before 2000 and are planning to carry out redevelopment work or demolition you will need to make sure you have had an Asbestos Survey carried out.
Asbestos-containing materials (ACM) are either known to contain asbestos, or presumed to contain asbestos. There are two types of Survey and Inner City Environmental can carry out these surveys for you.

Asbestos Removal Kent - Types of Asbestos Surveys
There are two types of survey for ACM (Asbestos Containing Materials)
1. Management survey
The Management Survey purpose is required to manage ACM during the normal occupation and use of premises.
The duty-holder can make a Management Survey where the premises are simple and straightforward.
Otherwise, a surveyor is needed.
A Management Survey ensures that:
- nobody is harmed by the continuing presence of ACM in a building or in equipment
- that the ACM remain in sound conditon
- that the ACM's are not disturbed
The Survey must locate ACM that could be damaged or disturbed by normal day to day activities, by planned maintenance, or by installing new equipment. It involves minor intrusion and minor asbestos disturbance to make a Materials Assessment. This shows the ability of ACM, if disturbed, to release fibres into the air. It guides the client in prioritising any removal work.
2. Refurbishment / demolition survey
The Refurbishment / demolition Survey is required where the premises, or part of it, need refurbishment or demolition. The Survey does not need to record the ACM condition.
An Inner City Environmental Surveyor can carry out the survey for you.
A Refurbishment / demolition Survey will aim to ensure that:
- nobody will be harmed by work on ACM in the premises or equipment
- the work will be done by an accredited contractor in the correct way
The Survey must locate and identify all Asbestos Containing materials before any structural work is started at a location.
It involves destructive inspection and asbestos disturbance so the area surveyed must be vacated, and certified 'fit for reoccupation' after the survey.
