Asbestos Refurbishment And Demolition Survey

At Harts Waste, an Essex-based asbestos company specializing in residential and commercial asbestos surveys, we provide an important service known as the Refurbishment/Demolition Survey.

This survey becomes essential when your premises, or a section of it, is slated for upgrades, refurbishment, or demolition. It’s important to note that, unlike other surveys, the Refurbishment/Demolition Survey doesn’t entail documenting the condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACM). Typically, the expertise of a qualified surveyor is indispensable for the successful execution of Refurbishment/Demolition Surveys.

A Refurbishment/Demolition Survey serves the following vital purposes:

  1. Ensures Safety: It guarantees the safety of individuals working with asbestos-containing materials (ACM) on the premises or equipment. This ensures that no harm will come to anyone during the process.

  2. Quality Assurance: It ensures that the work involving ACM is carried out by the appropriate contractor using the correct methods and procedures.

The survey’s primary objective is to locate and identify all ACM before any structural work commences at a specified location or on designated equipment within the premises. This involves destructive inspection and disturbance of asbestos. After the survey, the surveyed area must be vacated and certified as “fit for reoccupation.”

To facilitate the surveyor’s work, please provide essential information such as site layouts, building plans, building specifications, architect’s drawings, and any history of prior asbestos work. Also, highlight site hazards, including safe access points to elevated areas, and provide necessary access keys.

Report: The survey report should include the following details:

  • Precise Location: Identify the location, presence, and extent of asbestos-containing materials and any associated debris.

  • Condition Assessment: While the report doesn’t perform a comprehensive assessment of asbestos condition, the surveyor will flag any materials that are in a hazardous state.

  • Areas Not Surveyed: Clearly state any areas that the surveyor did not access. It’s important to presume that unvisited areas may contain asbestos.
