Asbestos can be found in any building constructed up until 1999. It can be found in a large variety of materials which may remain in place since a buildings construction or have been introduced during prior refurbishments. An asbestos survey will help to locate, identify and quantify these materials.
BO-AM Surveys offer the following services:
There are 2 main types of asbestos survey:
Asbestos Management Survey
A Management Survey is the standard survey used to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspected asbestos materials in a building which could potentially be disturbed during normal occupancy. The survey will usually include the sampling of any suspected ACM's which will be analysed by a UKAS accredited laboratory.
An asbestos survey will allow you to assess the risk and effectively manage any ACM's within a building.
Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Survey
An R&D Survey is required prior to any refurbishment or demolition works. These are legislative requirements as laid down and monitored by the HSE. This type of survey is fully intrusive and aimed to gain access to all areas as far as reasonably practicable.
Asbestos Re-inspections are assessments of previously identified ACMs (Asbestos Containing Materials). The purpose of this type of assessment is to check the materials condition and inspect for signs of deterioration. A Risk Assessment is carried out for each item and recommendations are made to help form a Management Plan.
Asbestos Bulk Sampling
A physical Bulk Sample of a single material can be taken to determine if asbestos is present within the material or not. This is particularly useful where an entire survey of a building is not necessary.
Project Management of Asbestos Remediation and Removal Works
BO-AM Surveys are not a licensed asbestos removal contractor. However we have extensive experience of project managing every aspect of remediation and removal works from project tender, the pre-planning of works, the works including air monitoring and the analytical process, through to project completion.
