An asbestos refurbishment and demolition survey must be carried out and is required where the property, or a proportion of it, will require upgrading, refurbishment or demolition. An asbestos demolition survey is required when the building is proposed to be completely demolished.
The purpose of an Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition survey is to locate and identify all ACM’s (Asbestos containing Materials) so that they can be removed prior to the demolition or refurbishment taking place. Therefore these types of survey are much more intrusive than an asbestos management survey.
The asbestos survey must locate and identify all ACM’s before any structural work begins at the property or on stated equipment at the premises. It involves destructive inspection and asbestos disturbance. The area surveyed must be vacated, and certified ‘fit for reoccupation’ after the survey.
We will need you to provide us with the site layout and any building plans, building specifications or architects drawings that may be available along with any documentation relating to previous asbestos work carried out on the property.
After completion of the asbestos refurbishment and demolition survey, we will provide you with a detailed report covering the location, presence and extent of asbestos-containing materials and debris. It does not access the asbestos condition but will will advice you of any that is in a dangerous state.

As well as asbestos surveys, we also offer comprehensive Asbestos Awareness Training. We’ve provided training to thousands of companies through the UK, both large and small, enabling them to deal with certain aspects of Asbestos themselves. We also provide an online asbestos awareness course. See our dedicated asbestos training site for more information.
