Asbestos Surveys

Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, any person who is responsible for commercial non-domestic or domestic properties (common areas) is required by law to identify and safely manage any asbestos within the building.  This ‘duty to manage’ applies to anyone who:

  • Owns the building
  • Is responsible through a contract or tenancy agreement
  • Has control of the building but no formal contract or agreement
  • Is the owner of a multi-occupancy building and have taken responsibility for maintenance and repairs of the whole building.

Any buildings built or refurbished before the year 2000 may contain asbestos. As a UKAS accredited asbestos survey company we can ensure that you are fully compliant with current asbestos legislation.

We will undertake a fully documented survey of your building using a tablet based data collection system that drastically reduces the time it traditionally takes to complete a full, end-to-end, asbestos survey. The Kershaw surveyor works through a structured, systematic process to collect the data, and the client’s final report is auto built as the survey progresses.

Using this system, we can confidently say that we have more than halved the time it takes to complete a full asbestos survey, reducing the duration down to 3-4 days. We then create a management plan for addressing the findings, which you can easily share with the people who enter, manage or work on the building structure, and assist you in dealing with any issues highlighted in the report.

Clients benefit from a much quicker turnaround time, which is of particular value to those with high volume survey needs.

For any company undertaking demolition, building or refurbishment work or for those who manage non-domestic premises we can help you meet your legal duty to manage asbestos.
