Surveys Are Vital When Dealing With Asbestos

Although Asbestos is now banned in the UK, the harmful material remains in tens of thousands of buildings. As such, identifying and managing asbestos containing materials is an essential concern. At ACM Contracts we offer a comprehensive range of surveying facilities, including Asbestos management surveys and refurbishment / demolition surveys.

Surveys are undertaken in accordance with HSG264 to establish the type, level and condition of asbestos. At ACM Contracts every survey is carried out by our highly trained and experienced team of surveyors who hold a minimum qualification of BOHS P402. Samples taken are analysed by approved independent UKAS accredited companies who we have a strong relationship with.

Sampling

We carry out Asbestos sampling, if you are uncertain whether a material may contain asbestos and require assistance, we offer an asbestos sampling service. Has with all our service this is for both commercial and domestic customers. The results from the suspected asbestos sample are normally available within 48 hours, a premium service can be offered if required.

Asbestos Management Survey

HSG Asbestos Surveys are fully insured and conducted by BOHS P402 certified asbestos surveyors, conducting asbestos management surveys throughout Yorkshire, Lancashire, Midlands and the rest of the UK.

We carry out Asbestos Management Surveys in accordance with HSG264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide (2012) and HSG248 Asbestos: The Analysts' Guide for Sampling, Analysis and Clearance Procedures.

The asbestos management survey provides information on any asbestos identified, its condition and how it should be managed, i.e. labelled, encapsulated or removed.
This asbestos management survey then forms part of your Asbestos Register in compliance with Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012). Regulation 4 states that landlords or duty holders have the responsibility to manage asbestos containing materials (ACMs).

Asbestos Refurbishment / Demolition Survey

We carry out Asbestos Refurbishment / Demolition Surveys in accordance with HSG264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide (2012) and HSG248 Asbestos: The Analysts’ Guide for Sampling, Analysis and Clearance Procedures.

An asbestos refurbishment and demolition survey are needed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. This type of survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all Asbestos Containing Materials in the area where the refurbishment work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach. An asbestos refurbishment and demolition survey may also be required in other circumstances, e.g. when more intrusive maintenance and repair work will be carried out or for plant removal or dismantling.

You Can Trust The Asbestos Experts

Every survey completed by ACM Contracts includes bulk sample analytical results, photographs’ sequential records of the site survey, an asbestos register and site plans showing the location of any identified asbestos. We also provide recommendations for the treatment/removal and management of all asbestos containing materials.
