Asbestos is a mineral that was commonly used in building materials until the 1980s. Asbestos fibers are strong, flexible, and resistant to heat, fire, and chemicals, making it an ideal material for insulation, fireproofing, and other construction purposes.
However, when asbestos fibers are released into the air, they can be inhaled and can cause serious health problems. Asbestos fibers can damage lung tissue and lead to conditions like mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. These conditions can take years or even decades to develop, and there is no cure for them.
Due to the serious health risks associated with asbestos, it is essential that property owners and managers know if their building contains asbestos. Asbestos surveys are the first step in identifying any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in your property, and determining the best course of action for managing or removing them.
Asbestos surveys are required under certain circumstances, such as prior to any building or refurbishment work, or prior to the demolition of a building. But even if a survey isn't legally required, it's still a good idea to have one done for the safety and peace of mind of everyone who enters your property.
There are two types of asbestos surveys that can be performed:
Management surveys are the most common type of asbestos survey, and are usually required for all non-domestic properties. A management survey is designed to identify any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) that may be present in a building and assess their condition. The goal of a management survey is to determine whether the ACMs present a risk to anyone who enters the building, and if so, to develop a management plan to prevent or reduce that risk.
During a management survey, our surveyors will visit your property, take samples of any suspected ACMs, and send them to a certified laboratory for analysis. We will then provide you with a detailed report outlining any ACMs present in the building, the condition of each ACM, and recommendations for managing or removing them.
Refurbishment and demolition surveys are required prior to any building or refurbishment work, or prior to the demolition of a building. These surveys are more invasive than management surveys, as they involve breaking through walls and ceilings to access hidden areas where ACMs may be present.
During a refurbishment or demolition survey, our surveyors will take samples of all suspected ACMs and provide you with a detailed report outlining every ACM present in the building, their condition, and recommendations for their removal.
The cost of an asbestos survey can vary depending on a number of factors. Here are some of the factors that can affect the cost of your asbestos survey:
Management surveys are generally less expensive than refurbishment and demolition surveys, as they are less invasive and require fewer samples to be taken.
The larger and more complex your property, the more time and resources it will take to perform an asbestos survey.
The age of your property can also affect the cost of an asbestos survey. Older properties are more likely to contain asbestos, so they may require a more thorough survey.
The location of your property can also impact the cost of an asbestos survey. Properties in remote or hard-to-reach locations may require additional travel expenses for the surveyor.
If you require an urgent survey, the cost may be higher than if you can wait for a more convenient time.

Our management surveys start at just 175 (ex VAT), and our refurbishment and demolition surveys start at 250 (ex VAT). However, the final cost will depend on the factors discussed above.
