Asbestos removal

Commercial Asbestos Removal

Buildings constructed before the year 2000 may have asbestos present. Before the dangers were known, this fibrous material was used widely in the construction industry for insulation. It may be found in flooring or roofing or it may have been sprayed on walls or ceilings in buildings such as old grain stores. Asbestos was used widely in agriculture to provide added insulation to cement walls and wall cladding.

Provided the materials containing asbestos remain intact, it poses little danger. However, if the material is disturbed, this can lead to airborne asbestos fibres which are highly hazardous to life. If you are concerned about the risks associated with asbestos on your property, we can help remove and dispose of it safely with our asbestos removal service.


How does my Asbestos affect me?

In January 2010 the HSE released updated guidance on surveying practices aiming to identify the presence of asbestos in a variety of buildings, premises or installations. The guide is called ‘Asbestos: The Survey Guide’ and its referenced as HSG 264. This guidance expands on and replaces MDHS 100 Surveying, sampling and assessment of asbestos containing materials.


The new guidance makes some significant requirements. Type 1 and 2 asbestos surveys have now been termed ‘Management Surveys’ and the Type 3 asbestos surveys are now termed ‘Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys’
Particular emphasis and importance has been placed on the planning of a survey and in addition, caveats and areas of no access should be avoided or reduced, so far as is reasonably practicable.


We can carry out both types of asbestos survey, the ‘Management Survey’ is intended to enable the management of asbestos within premises from a perspective of occupational risk to health, whereas the ‘Refurbishment and Demolition Survey’ is required prior to any works which will disturb the fabric of the building. The survey will cover the whole building due for demolition or just specific areas of the building where refurbishment is to take place.
