Asbestos Surveys in Manchester

There are two types of asbestos surveys. At Armco we have over 15 years of experience in asbestos surveying. Our trusted ad competent surveyors provide asbestos surveys in Manchester and UK wide, we offer Asbestos management surveys and asbestos refurbishment and demolition surveys.

Asbestos is a deadly substance made illegal in the UK in the year 2000. Before this date it as heavily used in construction, insulation and fire proofing. Any property built or refurbished before 2000 is likely to, and should be assumed to contain asbestos.

Asbestos Survey: Management Surveys;

If you are a duty holder or responsible for the maintenance of a property then An Asbestos Management Survey is a legal obligation according to the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012

The purpose of an Asbestos Management Survey is to locate and manage Asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) inside a building that have a potential to be disturbed or damaged. An asbestos management survey includes minor examinations to asses the material to see if the ACM’s will release fibres in to the air that could be harmful if they are disturbed, and if so recommendations into how they should be dealt with. Management surveys are ongoing and need to be repeated  yearly (recommended) to ensure safety for employees and check the condition of the Asbestos

An asbestos management survey ensures that nobody is harmed by the continuing presence of asbestos inside premises. The asbestos management survey is also so make sure that any asbestos present in a building is in good condition and is not likely to be disturbed and become harmful.

We have recently been working on the following Asbestos Surveys in Manchester:

Asbestos Survey: Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys;

The purpose of a Refurbishment and Demolition survey is to locate and any asbestos in a building which is due to undergo any refurbishment, upgrading or demolishing.  An asbestos refurbishment and demolition survey will asses the risk of workers being harmed by the presence of asbestos in a building and ensure that they are not exposed to any unnecessary risk due to the inhalation of asbestos fibres whilst working in a building containing asbestos. The survey will make sure that any work will be done by a licensed contractor. If the building is to be demolished the survey will locate any asbestos before the commencement of the work so it can be removed by a specialist.

Refurbishment/demolition surveys are intrusive and have aggressive inspection techniques like pulling up carpets and breaking through walls and should only be conducted in unoccupied areas to minimise health risk.

We have recently carried out the following asbestos refurbishment and demolition surveys in Manchester:
