A Refurbishment Asbestos Survey is required before any major re-modelling works are undertaken. This adds to an existing Management Survey and requires intrusive destructive sampling to the building that is under going refurbishment.

A Demolition Asbestos Survey is used when a building is to be demolished and again requires fully intrusive / destructive inspection methods. The building is required to be vacated with access to all areas and services isolated.

The above surveys can be combined to an Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Survey if required to carry out refurbishment to one area of a building and demolishing a different part of the building. They will still follow the same requirements and principles.
