What Is An Asbestos Demolition Survey?

Before all demolition work takes place an asbestos demolition survey is needed to be conducted. The current asbestos demolition survey guidance makes a clear regard to the difference in the level of survey required for refurbishment work and for complete demolition of a building. In line with asbestos guidance, ‘demolition’ is only utilised as a description if the entire building is to be demolished and completely removed. As such, when an asbestos demolition survey is requested, the scope of works is self-explanatory. An asbestos demolition survey must identify all asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within all areas of the building (as far as is reasonably practicable).
What’s involved with an asbestos demolition survey?

Asbestos demolition surveys are fully intrusive and involve extensive destructive inspection methods to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to gain access to. Aggressive inspection techniques will be required to break through walls, ceilings, cladding and partitions, lift up carpets and floor tiles and open up floors. We only conduct asbestos demolition surveys in unoccupied buildings. The purpose of this is to minimise risks to people within the premises, as excessive damage to the building is likely to occur. The building or area should not be operational, and all furnishings should be removed.

Client Testimonials

Fantastic service! Quick, efficient and friendly. Paul went the extra mile to help. Would recommend without question

Kate Seaman, Leeds

I called Paul yesterday afternoon. He arrived on site at 9.00 am this morning, completed his investigation and emailed me the results of the lab test this afternoon. Couldn't have been more efficient and knowledgeable. Very good price too. Highly recommended.

Ivan Button, Bradford

We needed a fast turnaround on an asbestos report for a care home we were buying for Welcome Independent Living Ltd. The following day Paul attended, fast tracked the results and sent an electronic copy of the report. Great value for money and superb service with free advice from the start. We will certainly use PAC Asbestos Surveys again in the future when required.
