Asbestos surveys

Crucial Environmental Ltd are accredited to BS EN ISO/IEC 17020 by UKAS to undertake both Management and Refurbishment & Demolition Surveys in accordance with current HSE guidelines.

We conduct two types of asbestos surveys:

Management Survey

A management survey is required for all commercial and non-domestic properties including common ways to shared accommodation (i.e. corridors, stairs, stores within flats etc). All surveys are conducted in a professional manner in accordance with HSG264. A completed management survey is the beginning of your organisation’s duty to comply with statute law. The survey is based on surface level sampling only and can be used for reference towards very light maintenance.

Pre-Refurbishment / Demolition Survey

This type of survey is requested when a building is to have small refurbishment through to complete demolition. We can cater for a management survey to be conducted within the majority of the building, with specified areas targeted where only part of a building is to be refurbished. When major refurbishment within the building or a total demolition of the structure is to occur, then a totally intrusive inspection using destructive techniques is adopted. Ceilings, walls, floors and under crofts are internally inspected and samples of suspicious Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s) are obtained for laboratory analysis.

Asbestos Lab Testing

If you’re worried that your property, building or home could have asbestos, Crucial Environmental Ltd. can carry out all the necessary work to test for potential asbestos-containing materials (ACMs).

Serving the majority of the UK, our team are equipped with specialist training to collect samples without risking damage to the structural integrity of the potential asbestos-containing material. Once these samples have been taken, we then send them off to a UKAS-accredited lab where they are analysed to establish whether asbestos is present.

Test results typically come back within 36 hours of the sample being collected, following on from which we will offer guidance on what to do next. Whether you’re having asbestos lab testing done as part of one of our surveys, or because you’re worried about a specific material, we can help.

Asbestos Sampling / Testing

Asbestos Sampling

If you have a suspicious material that you would like testing for the presence of asbestos, we offer a service where we visit your site, safely obtain a small sample (usually up to 5cm²) and submit it to a UKAS (United Kingdom Accredited Service) accredited laboratory. We take photographic evidence of the sample site and issue a mini full colour report incorporating the Certificate of Analysis along with our recommendations providing you with a cost effective solution going forward.
