Asbestos Surveying

Asbestos Surveying. Previously known as a type 2 asbestos survey under the old MDHS100 Guidance this survey is a surface sampling survey that is designed to identify any asbestos-containing materials that may be present within a property.

Asbestos Management surveys are typically undertaken to comply with regulations such as The Control Of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

This type of asbestos survey involves creating a register of all building materials and identifying any suspect asbestos products within the property that may be disturbed during regular occupation. This method of surveying is not fully intrusive and can be undertaken when the property is occupied.

Our highly skilled team of asbestos surveyors are experienced in ensuring a smooth project delivery on site, with the promise of quick turnaround times on survey reporting due to our cutting-edge online risk management portal NexGen.

Working alongside our surveying personnel, our dedicated risk management advisors are also able to provide Strategic Asbestos Management Consultancy, handling the process of compliance and ongoing management of asbestos including management plans and policy reviews.

Other types of asbestos surveys include:



Re-inspection asbestos surveys are designed to allow a competent person to monitor and record the condition of any previously identified asbestos products within a building.

Like any building material, asbestos-containing materials are also subject to potential damage and degradation. As an asbestos product degrades it can be more likely to become a hazard to health, therefore should be inspected at regular intervals to ensure its condition has not deteriorated.

For this type of survey to be undertaken an existing asbestos survey or asbestos register should be in place.

We will use the existing information to locate previously identified asbestos products and reassess its condition. The survey report accessed through our online risk management portal NexGen will include new photographs of those materials together with a new recommendation on how to safely manage those materials.

Additionally, our customers can also benefit from a dedicated risk management consultant who will provide strategic asbestos management advice based on the recommendations from your report.



Previously known as a type 3 asbestos survey under the old MDHS100 Guidance, this survey is fully intrusive and can be targeted to areas which may be affected by proposed refurbishment works.

This type of survey will be required by your CDM coordinator under the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015.

This type of survey is more intrusive than a management survey (old type 2) and should be undertaken alongside a project-specific plan of work to ensure that the survey covers all areas planned for refurbishment.

This survey will identify asbestos containing materials which will require removal or treatment prior to the planned works. In order for these materials to be removed safely and to the correct extent, we can also provide a project-specific asbestos removal tender specification as part of our asbestos abatement project management service.



Pre-demolition asbestos surveys were previously known as a type 3 asbestos survey under the old MDHS100 Guidance. Pre-demolition surveys are fully intrusive and are designed to identify all asbestos-containing materials using fully destructive techniques to access all elements of the building’s construction.

This type of asbestos survey should be undertaken for all demolition projects to ensure that any asbestos-containing materials identified within the survey can be removed by an asbestos removal contractor prior to demolition of the building.

This type of asbestos survey is fully intrusive and should not be undertaken in a property that is occupied or due to be reoccupied after the survey has been completed.

Demolition is a notoriously dangerous activity and remains the client’s ultimate responsibility to ensure the asset is disposed of in a safe manner.  To support this we can offer CDM compliance and health and safety advice.
