Since 2016, our dedicated team have been helping building owners and managers to identify and assess the asbestos status within their premises.

We pride ourselves on always being reliable, efficient and up to date with Health and Safety Executive (HSE) legislation.
Asbestos Surveys in Manchester
At Pillars Environmental, we specialise in two kinds of asbestos surveys:
- Refurbishment and Demolition asbestos surveys.
- Asbestos Management Surveys.
The Refurbishment and Demolition Asbestos Survey (R&D Asbestos Survey) is required for properties which were built before 2000, where refurbishment works are due to take place. The R&D survey is undertaken with visual and intrusive techniques. Therefore, we require access to all areas of the site which might contain asbestos.
An Asbestos Management survey is far less invasive. Instead of gaining full access, we would instead remove and replace ceiling tiles for example, as the building is likely to remain occupied throughout the survey. Where access is available, the materials will be tested and if access is difficult to obtain, we would presume asbestos is present. If the material is found to have asbestos then we would also assume other similar materials would also contain asbestos.
Asbestos Management Plans in Manchester
An asbestos management plan would detail how you intend to manage any asbestos in your Manchester building. It sets out the process that would need to be undertaken to ensure that any who enters the building will remain protected against asbestos. The Pillars Environmental asbestos management plans create a history of any asbestos materials found and labels the course of action taken. This could include: monitoring and reviewing, undertaking remedial works or removal.
Our asbestos management plans also provide the tools you need to manage the risk of asbestos and allows you to fulfil your legal obligations.
Asbestos removal management in Manchester
Asbestos removal can be a complex and expansive job. The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) states for the majority of asbestos removal works being undertaken, a licensed contractor is required.

Our asbestos management services are also fully comprehensive. This means that we can manage and oversee the job from start to finish.
