An asbestos survey in Southport is an essential part of the planning of your upcoming building project. Any building work done on an existing building, regardless of how small or how large it is can only begin once a thorough asbestos survey has been conducted. This applies to demolition work as well. Many existing buildings have asbestos-containing material in their structure that, if tampered with, can release harmful asbestos fibres into the surrounds. These fibres are dangerous and can cause diseases such as asbestosis and lung cancer. Asbestos was highly regarded as an excellent additive to building materials for its many qualities. However, once the danger of asbestos related disease was discovered, it was banned from use. Unfortunately, many buildings still contain asbestos.
Before beginning a building project in Southport, an asbestos survey must be completed to assess and report on the condition of any asbestos in the building infrastructure. The surveys we provide indicate the quantity of asbestos and its location in the building. It will also indicate whether it is harmful in its current state or not. Our surveys will also provide a risk assessment specific to your building plans, as well as a programme on how to manage it and a referral to contractors who are licensed to work with such materials safely. If the asbestos in your building is dormant and poses no risk, simply working around it is often the best solution. However, if your renovations, new build or demolition threaten to disrupt the asbestos, a removal plan will be necessary.
