What is an asbestos refurbishment survey?

Asbestos Refurbishment Survey 1You need an asbestos refurbishment survey before you undertake any intrusive refurbishment work. The current asbestos survey guidance makes clear reference to the difference in the level of survey needed for refurbishment works and for complete demolition of a building. You’ll need an asbestos demolition survey if you’re proposing to entirely demolish a building. Asbestos refurbishment surveys are used to locate and describe – as far as reasonably practicable – all asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in an area or building where refurbishment work is planned. An asbestos refurbishment survey may also be needed in other circumstances – for example if more intrusive maintenance and repair work is planned, or for plant removal or dismantling.

What’s involved in an asbestos refurbishment survey?

Asbestos Refurbishment Survey 2Asbestos refurbishment surveys are fully intrusive, and involve destructive inspection methods – as necessary – to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach. Aggressive inspection techniques may be needed to lift up carpets and floor tiles, break through walls, ceilings, cladding and partitions, and open up floors. Asbestos refurbishment surveys should generally only be completed in unoccupied areas. The purpose of this is to minimise risks to people on the premises. Where practicable, the building or area should not be operational and all furnishings should be removed.

In these types of surveys, if the asbestos is being identified so that it can be removed (rather than to just ‘manage’ it), the survey will not normally assess the condition of the asbestos – except to indicate areas of damage, or where additional asbestos debris may be present. However, as the asbestos removal may not take place for some time, the condition of asbestos-containing materials will usually be assessed, so that they can be managed.
