An asbestos survey is vital, particularly if you are planning to demolish, renovate or refurbish an older building. Asbestos was extensively used in building materials because of its excellent properties, and many buildings were constructed using this ‘wonder’ material. If your building was constructed prior to the mid-1980’s, it is highly likely that it has asbestos containing materials.  While asbestos was regarded as a ‘wonder’ material, it was discovered to cause life threatening diseases and cancers, and was subsequently banned as an addition to building material.
