Asbestos

Asbestos was traditionally advertised as the “magic mineral”. Raw asbestos fibres are as soft as silk but can be made into products as hard as granite. 

Fire resistant up to 800°c.

Asbestos is found in many different products and not only those that were used in the construction industry.


 

"Asbestos fibres, if airborne, pose a big risk of causing fatal lung diseases." 

 

More than 5000 people die every year in the UK alone from asbestos related diseases.

Asbestos management

Asbestos Surveys

  • Management surveys
  • Refurbishment and demolitions surveys
  • Asbestos Registers
  • Localised refurbishment and demolitions surveys
  • Sample only

An asbestos register is a legal requirement for all non-domestic buildings built before the year 2000.


We provide clear and concise reports with an asbestos register, sample point plan and laboratory results. Any works required are explained in the report.


 

Management & consultancy

  • Labelling and signage
  • Condition checks
  • Management plans
  • Removal strategy
  • Tax relief

The "Duty to Manage" asbestos is often the tenants responsibility. Many do not know that CAR2006 is old legislation.


All Survey are here to help you be compliant with the Health and Safety at Work act and the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR2012).


 

Removal & encapsulation

  • Small scale removal
  • Remove and renew
  • In house non-licensed removal
  • Licensed removal project management

Full-scale removal may not be required, but getting it wrong can lead to unlimited fines and potential imprisonment.


We advise on the most suitable course of action and type of asbestos contractor required. Ask us about tax relief for asbestos removals.
