Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Survey
The Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Survey is required where major refurbishment, replacement or demolition is contemplated, and it is, therefore, reasonable and essential to provide full access to all areas, involving destructive inspection as necessary. As refurbishment and demolition surveys will usually require destructive inspection and this will normally require the area or building being investigated to be unoccupied.

Emergency Asbestos Clean Up – Kings Langley
The emergency asbestos clean up process began with a single site visit where we had been informed by our client about the situation and why they required our service. We talked about our procedures and how we can help them. Our proposed quotation was accepted.
Upon acceptance, we started preparation of the Plan of Work which included a full list of equipment and materials required to complete this project safely. We booked an independent analyst to carry out an air test.
We began the work by forming a respirator zone around the kitchen area using 1000 polythene sheets with the flaps and warning signs in place. A changing and bagging zone was created outside the kitchen with the H type vacuum and bucket with water and sponge in place. Analysts carried out a reassurance air test and personal monitoring on our operative. Samples were taken to further analyses.
The emergency asbestos clean up works were started on Wednesday 7th October 2020 at 8am and was completed by 12noon the same day.
Asbestos Re-encapsulating Soffits – Bedfordshire
Asbestos Fighters were contacted by a school in Bedfordshire as they were concerned about the soffits on their building.
After a thorough inspection of the soffits, we advised the school that they could in fact be encapsulated – covered up so that they were protected with Asbestos Insulation Board (AIB) – instead of being removed.
This work was completed without any disruption to the routine or safety of the pupils at the school.
Following the re-encapsulating soffits work, we will now carry out an annual inspection to ensure they continue to be protected against the elements, keeping the pupils and staff safe.
Asbestos Pipe Insulation Debris Removal – Havering-atte-Bower, Essex
This pipe insulation debris was removed from this client’s piano room in their home under fully controlled conditions.
When carrying out pipe insulation debris removal work, we are required to give 14 days notification prior to the asbestos works beginning. Our team prepared a Plan of Work and had it verified before we submitted the ASB5 Notification to the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).
The asbestos removal work was carried out under fully controlled conditions, under a negative pressure unit. A Decontamination Unit, including Welfare and WC, was located on the front of the house, and we had all transit procedures in place.
All the work was completed in two days.
Asbestos Single Garage Re-Roof – Borehamwood, Hertfordshire
We were contacted by this client with regards to removing possible asbestos corrugated roof sheets on the property in Borehamwood. After answering their questions about how we work and the safety practises we adhere to, we were asked to take on the job.
Work began promptly at 8am on the day and the asbestos was safely removed and sent to be disposed of securely by 10am. At this point, the roofing team began replacing the garage roof and the entire job was completed by lunchtime. This kind of time frame ensures other building works do not need to be hindered when asbestos removal is carried out safely and to the standards expected of a company like Asbesstos Fighters.
