Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Surveys

Environmental Evaluation Ltd is UKAS accredited to ISO 17020 to undertake asbestos refurbishment and demolition surveys in domestic, commercial and industrial premises in accordance with the Health and Safety Executive’s Guidance HSG 264, Asbestos: The Survey Guide.

A refurbishment and demolition survey is 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 ACMs in the area where the refurbishment work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned.

The survey is fully intrusive and involves destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach.

A refurbishment and demolition survey may also be required in other circumstances, eg when more intrusive maintenance and repair work will be carried out or for plant removal or dismantling.
