and Demolition Asbestos Surveys
Core Surveys are specialists in asbestos management and with offices based in Sussex near Brighton and Wales, we’re conveniently located to cover the South East, Cardiff and surrounding areas as well as Surrey and Kent. Our team of asbestos consultants will use their expertise to help with the on-going monitoring and control of asbestos within buildings through regular asbestos re-inspections, and we will coordinate any remedial asbestos work required, including the removal and disposal of asbestos.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR2012) set out the Duty to Manage Asbestos. This imposes a duty of care for asbestos management within non-domestic properties and the communal areas of domestic dwellings.
In order to deal appropriately with asbestos, your property may require an asbestos survey to be carried out, known as an Asbestos Management Survey which will highlight any asbestos and will indicate if any remedial works are required.
The asbestos regulations also specify that if you are carrying out major refurbishment or demolition work, an asbestos survey should be undertaken prior to these works taking place. This is also supported by the Construction Design Management Regulations 2015 (CDM2015). In this instance, it would be necessary to carry out a Refurbishment or Demolition Survey.
At Core Surveys, our asbestos surveyors are P402 qualified as a minimum standard and carry out all asbestos surveys in line with HSG264 guidelines and in accordance with our UKAS Accreditation.
Our asbestos management reports include risk assessments and recommendations, which are given to you in an easy-to-follow digital or hard copy format. We can also advise on mitigating the cost of asbestos removal and management.
Once you have an asbestos survey you may require an asbestos management plan, asbestos awareness training or remedial works of some kind. Or alternatively, you may already have had a survey carried out and just need some further advice.
Please contact us to find out more about asbestos management. We are happy to assist whatever your circumstances and requirements.
“The HSE strongly recommends the use of accredited or certificated surveyors for asbestos surveys. The duty holder should not appoint or instruct an independent surveyor to carry out a survey unless the surveyor is competent.”
