Asbestos is commonly found in properties built before the 90s and is present in more uncommon places than you might think. K2E’s experienced environmental consultants can assist you in identifying asbestos-containing materials, so you can organize the removal of asbestos by a licensed removalist before the commencement of demolition works. If not identified properly, asbestos materials may be mixed with construction and demolition waste and can lead to deeming the entire waste stream as asbestos waste, which costs a premium for disposal.
Asbestos wastes, when mixed with soils can magnify the issue and can cause a significant budget blowout, project delays and may lead to regulatory intervention from the Council or the EPA. The benefits of undertaking a pre-demolition asbestos survey outweigh the financial and regulatory risks.
Not all asbestos-containing materials are not openly visible during a building survey and some locations such as the bathroom, kitchen, etc are presumed to contain asbestos. During the pre-demolition survey, an intrusive inspection can be undertaken by breaking open the suspected locations in a safe manner and obtaining samples to identify the hidden spots. We work with the demolition contractors and assist them in minimising risks.
