Asbestos Management & Surveys

Our management intrusive Surveys will help you manage asbestos in your property and prepare for any redevelopment work.
For more information on the correct survey for your requirements contact one of our consultants.
If you are the owner of a commercial property the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 requires asbestos to be identified and assessed by having an Asbestos Survey. Management of any asbestos can then be prioritised based on any changes to the property.

Asbestos Information

There is a duty on employers who occupy a building to manage risks from asbestos in their premises.

The key to asbestos management is to identify the location, type, condition and extent of any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within a building. An asbestos survey has to carried out to conform with HSE guidance note HSG 264.

The asbestos survey must be and should be of one of two types, depending on what the building is due to be used for:

Asbestos Management Survey

The purpose of a management survey is to ensure the management of ACM’s during the day to day occupancy and use of a premises. A Survey needs to be carried out by a trained Surveyor who may also arrange for testing of samples.

A Management Survey aims to ensure that:

  1. No one is at risk by the continuing presence of ACM’s in the building or equipment
  2. that the ACM’s remain in good manageable condition
  3. to avoid disturbance accidentally

The Survey will locate ACM that could be damaged or disturbed by day to day activities, by maintenance, or by the installation of new equipment. It involves minor intrusion and minor asbestos disturbance to access the Materials. This shows the ability of ACM, if disturbed, to release fibres into the air. It guides the client, e.g. in prioritising any remedial work.

Inner City Environmental will arrange a UKAS accredited company to carry out the Survey on our behalf. This gives peace of mind to all our clients.

Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

An asbestos refurbishment and demolition survey (R&D) is intrusive and destructive methods are used to uncover the extent of ACMs within the makeup of the building. It will locate materials that may be in difficult-to-reach areas such as roof voids, wall interiors, solid floors and undercrofts.

This survey is required if you are having extensive refurbishment works carried out, or if full or part demolition is taking place.

If demolition takes place with the asbestos present, the fibres will release into the immediate atmosphere and become a danger to health. The resultant waste material then becomes contaminated as asbestos and hazardous. If not disposed of correctly, reputable demolition contractors will not carry out demolition without having seen a survey and had it removed by a licensed contractor. The HSE will prosecute in these circumstances.
