What types of asbestos survey are available for Portsmouth properties?
We offer two types of Asbestos survey:
Asbestos management surveys
A management survey is the standard asbestos survey used for occupied buildings in Portsmouth.
Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition.
Refurbishment & demolition asbestos surveys
A refurbishment and demolition asbestos 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 practical, all ACMs 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.
A refurbishment and demolition survey may also be required in other circumstances. For instance, when more intrusive maintenance and repair work will be carried out or for plant removal or dismantling in Portsmouth.
Detailed reports containing data sheets, photographs and plans are issued in electronic format.
Annual re-inspection of the premises in Portsmouth by a qualified asbestos company, to assess the condition of products identified in the initial survey. This can be carried out in addition to advice about managing and assessment of asbestos products.
