Asbestos was extensively used in UK construction in building materials until being banned in 1999. Because Asbestos was so popular, any building built or refurbished within that period is likely to contain Asbestos or harbour Asbestos containing materials (ACM’s)

Our experienced, in house P402 accredited surveyors will carry out your surveys and our dedicated survey admin team will provide a swift turnaround of the survey report.

Due to the widely adopted uses of Asbestos, it's difficult to tell from just looking at a material whether it contains Asbestos, and most of the time, the asbestos-containing materials may be hidden beneath other materials. These materials could look like normal plasterboard, insulation, or concrete products, but they actually contain Asbestos fibres.

That is why it is a legal requirement to have an Asbestos survey when undertaking any demolition/refurbishment works or managing a building that could contain ACM’s

The following are the types of surveys R&F Insulation are able to perform;

Asbestos Management Surveys

An asbestos management survey is a legal requirement for duty holders responsible for any non-domestic premises. This type of survey is a surface sampling survey, to identify all of the materials that potentially could be disturbed during normal occupancy of the building.

An asbestos management survey will identify the location and condition of any ACM’s. If ACM’s are identified during an asbestos management survey, our experienced team will assist in planning required removal or remediation works in full compliance with current legislation.

Duty Holder Responsibilities

Duty Holders are required to manage asbestos risks in line with the Control of Asbestos Regulation (CAR) 2012. Managing your asbestos risks is paramount to protecting the building occupants and other users from any potential asbestos risk.

We can assist in managing your asbestos risk by providing an asbestos management plan once an asbestos management survey has been completed. This will detail the Duty Holder, Asbestos Register, Action plan, Communication Protocols, Contingency Plan and Emergency Arrangements.

Asbestos Reinspection Survey

In order for an Asbestos Reinspection Survey to be conducted, an existing asbestos survey or register must be in place. Our surveyor will inspect all asbestos items, record their condition and provide recommendations for management and remedial action.

Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys

If your proposed project includes major alterations, refurbishment or demolition works, you will require an Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Survey. Unlike an Asbestos Management Survey, the Refurbishment & Demolition Survey is fully intrusive and requires access to all areas of the building/site
