Key Asbestos is an asbestos contractor offering a full range of asbestos surveying, testing and sampling throughout New Malden and the surrounding areas of Surrey, London and the South East. We advise public and private sector clients on all aspects of asbestos within residential, commercial and industrial property.
The asbestos management survey is a standard survey that needs to be carried out on all commercial property and residential blocks by law and identifies the presence extent and condition of any suspected asbestos containing materials (ACMs). This requires every building to have an asbestos register and management plan available. Additionally if you are working in domestic premises, the survey is to any potential ACMs are not disturbed during your work and an asbestos survey must identify these.
Our surveyors have extensive experience and are fully qualified to current industry standards (BOHS P402) and have experience of surveying buildings from small residential flats through to large industrial sites. The survey assesses the likelihood of asbestos fibres being released and provides recommendations and information regarding asbestos management. Regular checks should then take place to ensure the materials do not deteriorate over time.
An asbestos refurbishment survey is essential before undertaking any intrusive refurbishment work, while a demolition survey is required when a building is proposed to be entirely demolished. Asbestos refurbishment surveys are used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all asbestos containing materials ACMs within an area or building where refurbishment works will take place.
The survey is fully intrusive. For example, if it is suspected that there may be asbestos under the floor, in the walls or between layers of the ceiling, an endoscope is used or the structure must be opened up to reveal potentially hidden asbestos. The survey will show all the remedial works that need to be carried out before the work can take place, along with an accurate cost of works.
If you have asbestos to remove, such as garage asbestos removal, it is always inconvenient and can be expensive. By using an experienced and fully licensed company Key Asbestos, the project will go smoothly. We can deliver an appropriately resourced asbestos removal service with fully qualified personnel, the latest equipment and the very highest technical standards of operation and can handle complex fast-track projects with speed, care and acute attention to quality control and health and safety requirements.
Our surveyors carry out inspections and samples are taken and then tested in a fully UKAS-accredited laboratory, before we give recommendations of the best course of action going forwards if the results are positive.
