Asbestos Refurbishment Survey - Roberts Wharf, Leeds
We surveyed the ground floor of on old mill which is being turned into flats at the prestigious Leeds waterside development, Roberts Wharf. It is a Grade II listed building right by the river Aire.
Asbestos-containing materials are commonly disturbed during construction work, resulting in fibre release. When asbestos fibres enter your lungs, you are at risk of developing fatal asbestos diseases. How do you know if you have breathed asbestos in? 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.
