Duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic properties sets a legal requirement for owners and occupiers of non-domestic buildings to have an asbestos survey and up to date asbestos register in place. These reports must form the basis of a detailed asbestos management plan that outlines how you intend to monitor and manage any ACM’s that may be present within your premises or estate. If you are an employer or are self-employed and have some or all of the responsibility for conducting repairs upon your premises you may well be the ‘duty holder’ in which case any legal responsibility for ensuring your asbestos survey has been conducted will rest with you. We can do two different surveys when you come to us, the first is a management survey and the second one is a refurbishment and a demolition survey. The management survey is a standard survey and its purpose is to locate 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 access their condition. The Refurbishment and demolition survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. 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.
Once your building has been surveyed we can then remove any ACMs that are currently present in the building.

Asbestos has been used for more than 2000 years and in the UK alone over 1 million buildings contain asbestos material. Between the 1950s and the mid-1980s asbestos was used in the UK in a variety of products such as fireproofing, electrical insulation and building materials. Even up until 1999 some asbestos products were still being used.
