Asbestos removal forms part of many demolition projects. The majority of buildings constructed before the 1990s contain some sort of asbestos, and it’s found everywhere from gutters to vinyl floor tiles.
However, locating it, removing it, and safely disposing of it needn’t be the nightmare that people fear it is. At RM Penny, we offer a complete asbestos removal service. We’ve been carrying out asbestos removal for decades, in all types of building, and can undertake the whole process from survey to legal disposal.
Before any demolition work can start, an asbestos survey needs to be carried out. We undertake the “Demolition / Major Refurbishment” survey, formerly known as the “Type 3” survey. This survey is described as “intrusive”, meaning that extensive sampling takes place, and it gives the most thorough picture of what asbestos containing materials are present.
Once the asbestos material is located and identified, it can then be removed – and safely disposed of, in accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations.
We will arrange and manage the removal of any licensed or non-notifiable asbestos from your site. Our team includes a BOHS P402 asbestos surveyor and our asbestos operatives are category B trained to remove non-licensed asbestos. We will employ and manage licensed contractors to remove any notifiable asbestos.
Certain conditions need to be met for transporting asbestos containing materials, and it can be disposed of only in certain permitted waste sites. Hand the whole asbestos removal part of your project over to us, and we’ll make sure it is carried out safely and in accordance with the regulations.
To discuss how we can help you with your asbestos removal, please contact us. We can start with the asbestos survey, and take it (away) from there.
As discussed asbestos is highly dangerous, with the disturbance of asbestos potentially leading to asbestos inhalation. Although it takes many years of continued exposure to airborne asbestos fibres to risk being affected by asbestos related lung diseases, the sudden dispensation of asbestos can be highly dangerous. This could be from the event of a demolition or of a large amount of asbestos being disturbed at once for example.
Not only is it of great importance to ensure that any demolition or construction project is safe, there are also a variety of legal requirements in relation to asbestos and asbestos exposure. The refurbishment / demolition survey is required when a demolition or refurbishment is set to be carried out. This involves destructive inspection & asbestos disturbance.
Although asbestos is a dangerous material, it needn’t be an issue with our comprehensive asbestos removal service. We will ensure that a full and highly professional demolition survey is carried out in which you are able to assess the risks and have asbestos that is present removed safely and hassle-free. As we have extensive experience in offering asbestos surveys & removals, we can ensure that you will be able to carry out your demolition project even if asbestos is present within the building that you are looking to demolish.
