Although asbestos was banned in UK construction since 1999, buildings built prior to this may still contain asbestos manufactured materials. It is estimated that at least 50% of all asbestos ever used in the construction of buildings in the UK are still present in buildings today.
According to The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012 it is the responsibility of duty holders in all non-domestic premises to ensure any asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) that have the potential to be damaged or disturbed upon regular activity are located.
At Carymar Construction Services Ltd we provide a full asbestos management service that ensures this is met and the presence of asbestos is controlled and managed appropriately.
Surveys are required to be conducted by competent surveyors who are P402 qualified and have at least 6 months practical surveying experience and should not be conducted otherwise. It is also advisable that the surveyor works to a certified quality standard. Carymar posses ISO 9001 Quality Management Certification.
