Asbestos was widely used within construction for many decades, and even though it was banned in the UK in 1999 that means there is still a large quantity of buildings and structures across the country that have asbestos-containing materials present in some form. If you are in charge of an up-coming demolition project it is important that you hire an asbestos survey company, such as Artisan Surveyors, to conduct a full and extensive survey on a site you are about to work on.
Demolition projects are often used to ensure that plots of land are either partially or completely cleared of old structures and buildings before future construction or refurbishment work can take place. In these cases, there is a requirement for a lot of preparation work, ensuring that the land is ready for the next phase.
In cases where old buildings may have asbestos present it is vital that a full and extensive asbestos survey takes place, and that, if asbestos is found a licenses asbestos removal team safely and securely removes all asbestos from the site prior to contractors beginning the demolition work. It only takes a moment to inhale asbestos fibres that have been disturbed during demolition work for a long-term life-threatening illness to take hold.
