Asbestos Refurbishment / Demolition Survey – Worsborough Youth Centre, Barnsley, Yorkshire

This in-depth survey involved a 1970s-era single storey former youth centre in South Yorkshire which is about to undergo a full refurbishment. Before the works could be carried out, our team went in and identified all the asbestos-containing materials in the building. After the safe removal of these ACMs, the contractor can now proceed in full confidence that their works can proceed without any asbestos risk.

Asbestos-containing materials are often disturbed during construction work, resulting in fibre release. When asbestos fibres enter your lungs, you are at risk of developing fatal asbestos diseases. There are no immediate effects, but there may be serious consequences in 20 years time. We always recommend a refurbishment and demolition survey if materials might disturbed as part of a refurbishment or demolition project. This includes refurbishment, maintenance, demolition, extensions and other construction activities.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 set out the Duty to Manage Asbestos in non-domestic properties. If you or your business are responsible for building maintenance and repairs, then you are the “Duty Holder”. Any commercial property built before the year 2000 may contain asbestos, and requires an asbestos register. This should be visible to employees or others who are working on site.
