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:
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.
