Helping businesses stay compliant with asbestos regulations

By forging a reputation as a trusted asbestos consultant in the UK, we have established a client base spanning all commercial sectors.

Over the years, RB Asbestos have helped huge organisations comply with the latest asbestos regulations and empower their staff in combating the dangers of ACMs (asbestos-containing materials). Our surveyors have conducted comprehensive asbestos surveys and testing in shops, industrial units and even village churches in the Durham area. And our expert team have consulted with social housing trusts on pioneering compliance initiatives.

Whether you are responsible for a single business premises in Durham or several buildings across a number of sites, you will need to use our specialist asbestos services. Having an asbestos survey conducted on the premises can both verify the safety of materials on-site and offer guidance on any remedial work required.

Here, we answer some of the most common questions we receive from customers about asbestos management, surveys and compliance.

How much does an asbestos survey cost in Durham?
There isn’t a fixed price for asbestos surveys in any area. Factors that influence the cost include the number of rooms to be inspected, as well as the age and condition of the building(s). RB Asbestos provide a comprehensive service at a competitive price, and when you get in touch we can give you a no-obligation quote based on our initial discussion.
Does Durham city Council remove asbestos?
No - Durham County Council will not come to your premises to remove asbestos containing materials (ACMs). However, they do accept asbestos cement bonded waste at 4 of their recycling centres, although you will need to hold a hazardous waste permit. The removal and disturbance of ACMs should be carried out by a qualified specialist. The Health and Safety Executive maintain a directory of asbestos removal experts.
Is an asbestos survey required by law in Durham?
All non-domestic buildings constructed before the year 2000 must legally have an asbestos survey in place. If you are responsible for a building in the Durham area, it is also good practice to make sure that employees, visitors and residents are not exposed to the considerable dangers of exposure to asbestos fibres.
