A Refurbishment Survey is required when the work you are carrying out on a building or structure is designed to change or upgrade it. This is different to minor maintenance, which is about maintaining what you have.
If your property fits the criteria above, then you have a duty to identify any asbestos before any refurbishment work is started. You must ensure that the asbestos is removed before the refurbishment has started (unless demolition is required to gain access to the asbestos).
Please note that for an Asbestos Refurbishment Survey you are required by law to have all samples analysed to understand where asbestos is located within the property. The sampling method is intrusive as often asbestos can be hidden in hard to get to areas.
The level of competency and knowledge needed for a Asbestos Refurbishment Survey is greater than for Asbestos Management survey, and the intrusive nature of these surveys presents more health and safety risks.
WHY ASBESTOS SHOULD BE IDENTIFIED AND REMOVED
The Asbestos Regulations require all asbestos likely to be disturbed by the refurbishment work to be identified and removed, so far as is reasonably practicable, before the work commences.
