Asbestos survey types
R&D ASBESTOS SURVEY - type 3 asbestos survey
Refurbishment and demolition survey has to be completed before any kind of major refurbishment or demolition work. The survey needs to contain the precise location but not the condition of the fabrics (ACM) that contain asbestos in any form. This inspection disturbs asbestos-containing materials which results in air pollution. No one allowed to be on the premises apart of expert contractors and surveyors during the process. Once the survey is done they have to certify the building with a sign of 'fit for reoccupation'.
MANAGEMENT SURVEY - type 2 asbestos survey
Another name type 2 asbestos survey which requires less time and usually it is a non-intrusive process. With this type of audit, the expert surveyor locates acm asbestos in the property and carefully estimate its condition. If the premises are easy and straightforward to survey the duty holder is allowed to do the management survey; otherwise, you need a proper surveyor. We can call it domestic management survey because it is a very gentle process and quicker than r&d survey. In the past years, it became very trendy to run this process with home buyers and sellers. As we are getting to know the high risk and danger that this particular mineral can output, families new homeowners request asbestos management reports on the properties.

Asbestos survey cost
This is the answer that many people want to know immediately.
Size, age, and the type of survey are playing the main roles when it comes to pricing asbestos survey.
To run an inspection on an older property will cost more generally speaking because of the more asbestos can be found there.
The property that was built in the '90s can cost significantly less than the older building from the '60s for example.
Asbestos was widely used in the '50s & '60s. They used it for floor tiles, ceiling tiles, even used it for painting decorations called Artex.
Clearly, in these old properties, we need to take samples from more location.
SIZE - NUMBER OF ROOMS
This is not as people usually think.
Size of the property doesn't change that much. But the number of rooms does. Asbestos surveyors have to register every room on site.
Floorplan of the property can give us a clearer picture of the cost of the work. It contains a number of rooms and floors.
For instance, a large warehouse that has 3 rooms cost less then an 5 times smaller office building if the office building has a lot more rooms, floors, sub floors, ceiling voids. All of these add up during the survey and takes more time and probably more sampling too.
