In-house Asbestos Laboratory

Our in-house UKAS Accredited asbestos laboratory ensures that we are able to offer our clients a cost-effective and efficient turnaround on all asbestos testing and sample analysis.

Asbestos Lab Testing & Sampling Service

Particularly in the case of domestic clients, an asbestos survey can be more than is required so if you are simply looking to find out if one particular product within your property contains asbestos then our asbestos lab testing and sampling service may be more appropriate.

How Are Asbestos Samples Collected?

An asbestos surveyor will visit your property and take the required sample which will then be analysed in our in-house UKAS accredited laboratory and, following analysis, you will be provided with a certificate confirming if asbestos is present.

At Core, our asbestos surveyors are P402 qualified as a minimum standard and carry out all asbestos surveys and sampling in line with HSG264 guidelines and in accordance with our UKAS Accreditation.

Our asbestos survey reports include risk assessments and recommendations, which are given to you in an easy-to-follow digital format.

In line with our UKAS accreditation, all of our asbestos surveyors have undergone our own in-house training and follow our surveying and quality procedures.
