Asbestos Removal for Construction & Demolition
In projects involving construction/renovations or demolition of buildings that were constructed on or before 1999 - you will be required to carry out an assessment of the risks that asbestos is present within the building. As a non-domestic building owner, you will have a legal responsibility to manage and identify the presence of asbestos. This also includes residential properties such as flats that share common communal areas.
Asbestos poses a large risk, specifically during demolition projects because of the fact that asbestos fibres are dispersed into the air when they are disturbed. A large demolition in which asbestos has not been identified or removed could spread asbestos fibres into the environment and around the blast site - so this is why it’s so important that the risks are identified and mitigated.
At A4 Asbestos, we have many years of experience supporting asbestos surveying, sampling and removal/collection for clients in the construction and demolition industry. We are able to assist and support you due to the fact that there is a highly likely chance that asbestos is present during a demolition project for buildings constructed before 1999. We offer highly competitive and professional asbestos removal in Bristol and across the South West.

Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 imposes a duty to manage Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) on non-domestic premises. There are a number of health & safety requirements and regulations that are key to protecting individuals and workers against the risks that are posed by asbestos. Should asbestos be present in a building before you carry out your project, we highly recommend that you arrange for the experts to action on the removal of asbestos. Commercial projects can also benefit from asbestos testing and it’s highly recommended to carry out testing for peace of mind. For demolition, a refurbishment and demolition survey must be carried out and all Asbestos Remaining Materials (ACMs) identified.
This survey is vital in terms of protecting everyone on the premises and using specific equipment. Asbestos fibres when disturbed can be inhaled and over time, the fibres become trapped within the lungs. Asbestos fibres are carcinogenic and cause a variety of lung diseases such as cancer and mesothelioma. The survey ensures that nobody will be harmed during the project and that work will be carried out by the correct contractors. We can support you during the surveying and testing process. We are also able to collect and dispose of all ACMs safely and effectively.
