Asbestos removal in Edinburgh

As a well established asbestos removal contractor, Carymar have experience removing asbestos containing materials (ACMs) from a wide range of different building types throughout Edinburgh including factories, offices, educational establishments, commercial, retail and housing associations.

When asbestos is discovered, whether it is in the form of insulation board, cement or a textured coating, it is the contractor's statutory duty to ensure that any hazardous asbestos containing materials are dealt with effectively to prevent exposure to both employees and the public. As a fully HSE licensed contractor with vigorously trained staff, Carymar Construction services ensure every asbestos removal project is fully managed.

We have experience working within occupied premises and have the ability to devise solutions to remove any asbestos with minimum disruption to the operation of the business activities. We protect your staff and the public first and foremost by constructing asbestos enclosures that ensure all asbestos dust, fibres and particles are contained. Our fully qualified team will then safely remove or encapsulate all ACMs before we leave site, ensuring the environment meets the standards required.

Asbestos surveying in Edinburgh

As specialist asbestos contractors, Carymar's surveyors are fully trained and experienced in completing asbestos surveys in Edinburgh and the lothian area.  Our team complete asbestos surveys in all kinds of commercial and public properties, including Universities, schools, manufacturing premises, public buildings and hospitals.

Do you need an asbestos survey? At Carymar we can advise you if an asbestos survey is required for your premises and what type of survey should be in place to monitor and manage any asbestos containing materials and ensure you comply with legislations. 

For premises that are subject only to routine maintenance activities we carry out an asbestos management survey which will identify asbestos containing materials. We take small fingernail sized samples where required and send them to an accredited laboratory for testing which indicates if there is asbestos present and if so what kind of asbestos. For instance, blue asbestos (Crocidolite) and brown asbestos (Amosite) are commonly found in insulation boards, thermal insulation and sprayed coating whereas white asbestos (Chrysotile) is commonly located in cement tiled roofs, down popes and flues. 

Before you can legally carry out major renovations or demolition, a refurbishment /demolition survey is required. In a refurbishment/demolition survey Carymar supervisors locate and describe, as far as reasonably practical, all Asbestos Containing Materials in the area where refurbishment work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned. A refurbishment/demolition survey will be intrusive and involve destructive inspection, as required, to gain access to areas.
