Who needs an asbestos survey in Smethwick? Owners and managers of public buildings need a Management Asbestos Survey. ACS performs these surveys for businesses, schools, factories, public housing and more. The purpose is to first determine if asbestos is present. If it’s not, then we write a report to that effect for the owner’s files. The owner/manager has met their obligation. If the survey shows the presence of asbestos, then ACS will record its whereabouts and condition. That information will determine how the asbestos will be managed. The management could be anything from doing nothing to complete containment and removal. Our survey report will make recommendations based on the condition of the asbestos.
A Refurbishment or Demolition Survey differs from a Management Survey. If you plan to refurbish a public building or tear it down in Smethwick, an asbestos survey that is invasive is necessary. For refurbishment that means going into the intended area and probing into walls to search for the asbestos. The deadly material could be in the walls insulation, plaster walls or wrapped around heating pipes. You can’t refurbish safely until the asbestos is removed from the premises. If the building is coming down, then a systematic removal must take place to avoid contaminating the environment including the ground the building sits on. Our Refurbishment or Demolition Survey will outline the recommendations for removal safely and legally.
