Types of survey:
It is usually a rather non-obtrusive kind of process that is aimed at locating the asbestos containing materials and predicting the amount of work connected with it. It is necessary to perform such action in order to make sure that the chemical will not be released into the air as a consequence of a day to day activity.
Refurbishment and Demolition survey
It is done before attempting any major refurbishment or demolition works. Similarly, as in case of management survey, this type of scrutiny is arranged in order to make sure that significant changes in the construction of the building will not trigger the noxious asbestos fibres. It is especially important to have it done because very often asbestos is well-hidden and conducting any significant refurbishments in old buildings may carry a risk.
