Dealing with any sort of asbestos related work is something that should be left to the experts, as asbestos can be potentially very dangerous in the wrong hands. In addition to having the knowledge and skills to remove or dispose of this hazardous material, London experts are also able to offer other related services such as an asbestos demolition survey. This type of survey is very important, as it is vital to check on the presence of asbestos in a building prior to any demolition work being carried out. Failure to do this could result in serious contamination of the environment as well as posing serious health risks to the public and those working on the demolition project.
There are a number of different types of survey that you can choose from when you come to Blue A Ltd. Our trained and experienced professionals can offer a standard Management survey or a more extensive Refurbishment and Demolition survey. The latter is, of course, the most involved and comprehensive of the survey types, as the whole building would need to be checked before demolition work commences.
Why you need this type of survey
The asbestos demolition survey fulfils a number of purposes when carried out by a trained professional with the necessary expertise. The survey will help to provide data on the location and level of asbestos at your London property. It also involves using the information to complete the asbestos register and create an asbestos plan of the building.
If the property is being refurbished, the survey will be focused upon the areas that are going to be worked on as part of the project. However, in the event that the building is going to be demolished the whole property will need to be surveyed so that all Asbestos Containing Materials can be identified and marked for removal before the demolition work is carried out.
While this type of process can be intrusive and may involve taking destructive measures so that the survey can be carried out properly, it is important to ensure that it is done before the building is demolished. Asbestos dust and fibres are released when the material is damaged or disturbed – in the event of a demolition this means a huge amount of dust and fibres being released into the environment. This can then lead to serious health problems for those exposed to it.
