Asbestos Surveying specialists, Gully Howard Technical offer a range of Asbestos Surveys including: Management Survey, Pre-Refurbishment Survey & Pre-Demolition Survey. We also provide Material Analysis and Air Testing & Monitoring Asbestos Services.
This is a standard survey. Its purpose is to locate, as far as practicable, the presence and extent of any suspected asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition.
This type of survey is undertaken in premises where planned improvements or refurbishments work is being undertaken. Planning should be utilised to ensure that refurbishment surveys are carried out well in advance of works, to allow time for asbestos materials requiring licensed removal adequate scheduling, with a view to including the 14 day notification period required by the HSE.
A pre-refurbishment survey may require the isolation of services such as: Gas, electricity, water and may also need water storage vessels to be drained, if they affect the access of items that will be disturbed during the following refurbishment.
A pre-demolition survey is undertaken prior to complete or partial demolition of existing structures. Pre-demolition surveys are carried out in unoccupied areas due to the increased intrusiveness of the work method. This will usually require the isolation of services such as: Gas, electricity water, and may mean that water storage vessels are required to be drained.
Similar to pre-refurbishment surveys, planning should be utilised to ensure that pre-demolition surveys are carried out well in advance of works, and allow appropriate time for asbestos materials to be removed prior to the demolition of the building. By liaising closely with all of the relevant parties we ensure that the process is kept as efficient as possible, allowing projects to finish on time.
