Asbestos Surveys and Sampling. 

GD Asbestos has a vast amount of experience in the two types of asbestos surveys recognized, always ensuring that they are carried out strictly in accordance with industry guidelines and H.M.Health & Safety Executive “Survey Guide” (HSG 264). 

If you are unsure as to the type of survey you require, we will work with you to help you understand your responsibilities and to ensure you meet with any legal obligations you may have.
A brief description of the two types of survey required to meet with current legislation is below; 

Management survey

This is the more common of the two surveys; it will inform you whether or not you have asbestos in your premises. Small samples are taken throughout the premises; from suspect area’s and sent of for analyzing at an accredited laboratory. The outcome of the testing will inform you of the type of asbestos present. We will then formulate this information into a report and register. We will also advise you on the management of the asbestos and any further steps you may need to take; we will also help with removal or encapsulation if required.

Visual inspection

There is a third type of survey, although outside the scope of “The Survey Guide” (HSG 264), and is used for providing advise to the client. It is a simple visual survey and will give you an indication of whether there is asbestos present in your premises. We do not take any samples of material but rely on the experience of our surveyors to make assumptions, on which our advise is based. This is often carried out “Free of Charge”. 
Our expertise and wealth of knowledge of asbestos surveys will enable you to understand whether you need to proceed with any asbestos removal or remedial works, if this is the case then we also have qualified staff to provide a high quality encapsulation and removal service. 
GD Asbestos can also provide localized temporary surveys, often more cost effective than a full building surveys, can often be more appropriate for your needs. Our experience will help you to understand and assist you in selecting the right type of survey for your requirements.

Asbestos Management

Once asbestos has been identified via survey, it will need to be safely managed to prevent ongoing damage or accidental contamination by unknowing tradesmen or engineers who may inadvertently disturb the asbestos whilst undertaking their own works.
Remember that you can call upon us at any time for free advice and a site visit. 

Soft Strip and Demolition

In addition to asbestos removal works GD Asbestos will undertake the soft strip of buildings where asbestos is present with other building materials such as suspended ceilings, flooring , and partitions, also that to boiler houses and roof structures.

We will also remove asbestos contaminated rubble and debris from building sites. GD Asbestos can arrange for the removal of asbestos containing electrical and gas appliances and other technical equipment, after first employing qualified engineers to carry out the safe disconnection works.
Any of the above can be carried out prior to asbestos removal works or as part of the removal project in the event of wide spread contamination.
