When do I need an Asbestos Survey?
If you are planning any extension or refurbishment works on your property, then an asbestos survey is also beneficial – for both the safety of the tradesmen who will be carrying out that work, and for your own peace of mind.
An initial asbestos survey will be required to achieve this. If your property is found or has previously been found to contain asbestos, you will then require an Asbestos Management Plan and a Risk Register, which should be updated each year. This will necessitate a series of Re-Inspection Asbestos Surveys.

Types of Asbestos Survey
Meyer Surveys Ltd. can provide the following types of asbestos survey on any property in Hampshire:
Asbestos Bulk Sampling
Our surveyors simply take samples of suspected ACMs from walls, roofs, ceilings, etc., and make good all the sampling points following inspection.
Samples are sent to a UKAS-accredited laboratory for expert scientific analysis. Reports are compiled and supplied based on the results. These will include a detailed Material Risk Assessment for any level of asbestos found, along with recommendations on how best to safely manage the ACMs.
Asbestos Bulk Sampling can be particularly suitable for domestic premises, particularly as they are about to be placed on the property market for either sale or rent.
Asbestos Management Survey
Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition.
Management surveys will often involve minor intrusive work and some disturbance. The extent of intrusion will vary between premises and depend on what is reasonably practicable for individual properties, i.e. it will depend on factors such as the type of building, the nature of construction, accessibility etc. A management survey should include an assessment of the condition of the various ACMs and their ability to release fibres into the air if they are disturbed in some way. This ‘material assessment’ will give a good initial guide to the priority for managing ACMs as it will identify the materials which will most readily release airborne fibres if they are disturbed. The survey will usually involve sampling and analysis to confirm the presence or absence of ACMs. However, a management survey can also involve presuming the presence or absence of asbestos. A management survey can be completed using a combination of sampling ACMs and presuming ACMs or, indeed, just presuming. Any materials presumed to contain asbestos must also have their condition assessed (i.e. a material assessment).
For this type of survey to be undertaken an existing asbestos survey or asbestos register should be in place. The asbestos surveyor will use the existing information to locate previous identified asbestos products and reassess its condition. The survey report itself will include new photographs of those materials together with a new recommendation on how to safely manage those materials.
The Asbestos Survey Report that follows will detail the specific findings regarding discovery of ACMs, and recommendations for their removal and disposal prior to the commencement of structural work.
