Asbestos Surveys Halifax


We carry out asbestos surveys in Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford, Keighley and across Yorkshire. However being from Halifax and based in Calderdale, we know these areas very well. Asbestos surveys Halifax are our speciality!

The vital information needed by the majority of our customers is the asbestos register for their building (this is part of the survey report we produce). This has been a legal requirement in all non-domestic premises ever since the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations came into force in 2002.

A good rule of thumb is that a management survey and asbestos register need to be in place for any non-domestic properties that were built before the year 2000. If your property was constructed before this time, it is likely that part of the building may contain asbestos in one form or another.



The current legislation (The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012) is designed to protect employees and visitors from the dangers of asbestos in the workplace. Also, many UK insurance companies are now requiring that employers demonstrate that an Asbestos Risk Assessment has been carried out.

The Duty Holder can fulfil their obligations by employing an asbestos surveyor to create a report for the building in question. Initially an Asbestos Management survey should be carried out on the premises, which will provide the Asbestos Register for the property.

In larger properties this can then be supplemented with an Asbestos Management Plan. If a significant amount of asbestos is present, the legislation recommends ongoing Asbestos Re-inspections to ensure that the legislation is met. Any further major works to the building might then require an Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition survey (often known as an Asbestos R&D Survey).



Some examples of previous clients we have helped out in the Halifax and Calderdale areas include:

  • Schools such as All Saints Primary (Halifax), Todmorden C of E Primary School and St Joseph’s Catholic Primary (Halifax).
  • Historic mill buildings such as Nutclough Mill (Calrec) and Melbourne Works in Hebden Bridge, and Victoria Mills (Greetland).
  • The Fire and Water project in Sowerby Bridge which involves the redevelopment of the old council buildings, fire station and swimming pool.

These are just a few examples - see our projects section for further examples of notable jobs carried out in various parts of West Yorkshire and beyond:

Have had a great experience. Had an urgent need to get a survey done for a mortgage application. Fast and helpful response, which was very competitively priced. I'd happy recommend to others.
