We are an experienced asbestos survey company based in London, with over two decades of working with this deadly fibre; it’s our mission to keep you and your workers safe.

Our services ensure your building legally conforms to the The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 [CAR 2012] as well as the new Regulation 4 – The Duty to Manage Asbestos.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2006 (Regulation 4) places a legal duty on anyone with responsibility for the maintenance and repair of non-domestic premises and common areas of rented domestic premises to:
- Locate asbestos and establish its presence
- Act as if asbestos is there until an expert surveyor says otherwise
- Make a detailed record of all encounters, findings and condition
- Take action to remove or manage any risk
- Let anyone who will pass the building, enter the building or work in the building know about the asbestos risk.
Asbestos fibres are airborne, therefor if disturbed they can create a huge hazard to the public too, if this happens, your business could be fined for millions of pounds.
We offer different types of survey:
Asbestos Management Survey
This is a standard survey and the most popular with residential customers and businesses alike. Using powerful detection equipment we assess the presence of any asbestos in the dwelling that could cause a hazard if damaged or disturbed.
Although this survey usually involves some disruption to the building as a thorough investigation requires the occasional removal of plaster or boards, we use our experience to determine the most unobtrusive way to manage your asbestos.
After analysis and sampling we will provide you with a report that offers advice on the safe removal and disposal of any asbestos that could be disturbed during normal occupancy. WE will also advise of the management of remaining asbestos that will not come into contact with any person, allowing you to make an informed decision according to your own budget.
Refurbishment and Demolition Survey
Before a property is demolished or refurbished the threat of asbestos must be eliminated in order to maintain the safety of any people that work or live near the property. Our refurbishment and demolition survey will locate any asbestos and offer the safe removal. CAR 2006 (regulation 7) stipulate that all asbestos should be removed prior to a major refurbishment or demolition of a building, so we supply survey reports along with a removal service that adheres to these strict regulations and ensures your building becomes asbestos free quickly and efficiently.
