An asbestos survey in Wakefield is of vital importance. Asbestos is a group of six naturally occurring fibrous minerals composed of thin, needle-like fibres. Asbestos is flexible yet resistant to heat, electricity and corrosion. It was regarded as a quality additive to building materials for these reasons and was added to cements, drywall compounds, plastics, paints, sealants, and adhesives. It was discovered that when asbestos aged, disturbed or damaged, it released its fibres into the air. These could be inhaled by persons within its vicinity which resulted in dangerous disease and cancer such as mesothelioma and asbestosis.
If you own or manage an older building in Wakefield, an asbestos survey is required. A survey, when conducted by a professional team, will locate its presence and the extent of its degradation. A plan can then be formulated on the best method to manage the asbestos on the property. Our team of surveyors can assist you in choosing the right course of action for your building. We will advise you on the type of asbestos survey most appropriate for you. If you are planning on renovating or demolishing your building, you will need to have a refurb demolition survey completed. This is an intrusive survey, with destructive inspection in order to gain access to all areas of the building. However, if you are not going to demolish your building, we recommend a management survey. All the surveys we perform are in accordance with the HSG264 industry standard as stipulated by the HSE.
