Asbestos Removal Cost Assessment
It is important to choose a reputable contractor to remove the asbestos that has been found in your property.
If you do have asbestos in your property we can help in two ways.
Firstly, we can supply you with a list of reputable firms to price the removal work.
Secondly we can also look at the quotations with you, to help you understand what they mean.
Different contractors often use different approaches to costing up removal work. The time of year you engage with them can also have a bearing, particularly during the school holidays when the prices may be more expensive, due to the demand on their services.
By determining the extent and risk of the asbestos that the property contains, you will be able to request a well estimated asbestos removal quote so you can start budgeting for the process.
Asbestos Survey/ Compliance Audits
If you look after a number of properties, then you will possibly have surveys for the majority of them. The surveys may have been or are being carried out by a single contractor. Or, they may have been carried out over a number of years. You may have a requirement to audit those surveys to ensure they still comply with the regulations, or to check the quality and consistency of the findings. If so, we can help, as we currently provide this service, particularly in the social housing sector.
We fully understand the process of implementing the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 from the client’s prospective. We can guide you through asbestos regulations and explain the law as it applies to you. You can speak to a member of the team during the process to gain advice and find out where your project is up to.
Asbestos regulations state ‘none domestic (commercial) buildings must have an asbestos register’ (which generally applies to buildings dated pre 2000 – when asbestos was banned in the UK). Our expertise has enabled us to assist Owners, Project Managers, H&S Managers, Architects, and Property Professionals to adhere to asbestos regulations (CAR 2012), whilst minimising the effect on business operations.
