Where Can Asbestos Be Found?
Generally speaking, people through Bristol think Asbestos is just for insulation and found in the roof or a wall. Though true, Asbestos can also be used in toilet cisterns, Artex, water tanks (pre-1980), fire insulation, floor tiles, boilers and flash guards.
What Is Asbestos?
There are 6 types of asbestos - but only 3 have been widely used in building materials: white (Chrysotile), brown (Amosite) and blue (Crocidolite). Strictly speaking blue is the most dangerous, followed by brown and then white.
The trade and use of asbestos has been restricted or banned in many jurisdictions in Bristol. Asbestos is basically a set of six naturally occurring silicate minerals used for their desirable physical properties. Though mined from rock, when broken down it breaks apart into tiny fibres.
We're qualified in asbestos refurbishment, management and demolition surveys for industrial, commercial and domestic buildings covering Bristol. Where required can also undertake a Commercial EPC in a cost-effective package.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (Reg 4) places an explicit duty on those responsible (the duty holder) for any commercial premises to identify and manage asbestos containing materials that may be present in the property.
A risk assessment must be undertaking by employeers for employees when work is likely to involve asbestos. This should include a plan of how the work is to be carried out as well as outline, and provide solutions to, any asbestos-related issues that may occur. All information must be kept up-to-date and available to anyone who may work or disturb the asbestos containing material (ACM).
What's Involved In An Asbestos Survey?
An asbestos management, or type 2, survey will have one of surveyors taken samples of suspected asbestos throughout a building before sending them off to a lab. Whilst at the property, each room and the materials used will be noted. If a room is locked or otherwise inaccessible this will be noted too as there will remain a possibility of asbestos within.
A refurbishment/demolition survey, formally a type 3 survey, will be, as the name suggests, more destruction than a management survey. This will involve a surveyor accessing areas where future work is to be undertaken by knocking through a wall or drilling into floor slabs. This is to ensure that when the property is destroyed or altered that the next team in won't risk tampering with asbestos themselves that could be damaging to their health.
