Are you planning any demolition or Refurbishment?
Importantly all Refurbishment and Pre-Demolition surveys should have air monitoring undertaken as part of the survey process. Such monitoring can only be undertaken by a UKAS accredited laboratory.
It is important to note that this type of survey will assess the type and volume of asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) and that in doing this some may involve demolition in order to gain access to the samples. It is therefore important to note that some damage to the fabric of a building will occur during this type of survey.
The guidance suggests that this type of survey will provide sufficient information to formulate an asbestos tender document. We would strongly recommend that additional information be included in any tender documentation to safeguard for additional costs. For those clients unfamiliar with this type of work we would suggest to contact us for assistance with project management. Importantly the survey is only necessary for the part of a building that is being refurbished, so one floor may be surveyed while the others remain undisturbed; however the survey needs to be appropriate for the type of refurbishment / demolition being undertaken.
Management Surveys would normally be performed on a site where no renovation/refurbishment works is due to be carried out for the foreseeable future.
Thames Laboratories employs highly trained, experienced specialists and is fully accredited by UKAS to carry out Management surveys.
