Asbestos Survey & Consultancy

Advantage Environmental & Construction Ltd can advise on the effective asbestos management, asbestos survey, domestic or commercial premises (Duty to Manage Regulations). Under duty to manage regulations and CAR2012 to manage your asbestos effectively the first thing you should do is carry out an asbestos management survey, this will allow for all asbestos to listed and the history documented and written plans in place.

Advantage Environmental & Construction Ltd can help and assist in the design bespoke plans that meet the requirement of each individual client.  

​Any property built prior to the year 2000 should have an asbestos management survey or sampling carried out, but in most cases prior to work being carried out an asbestos refurbishment and demolition survey is needed, commercial premises fall under the duty to manage and need specific documents with management plans in place to ensure they are compliant under current regulations.

​Asbestos Surveys & Sampling

Asbestos Being Sampled

As set out by the HSG264 there are only two surveys to be considered, a Management Survey and Refurbishment & Demolition Survey although you can have a mixture of the two for specic areas depending on the requirements of the project being undertaken.

At Advantage Environmental we can suggest the right type of survey by knowing the specific needs and requirements you have and advise accordingly.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
