    Reliable and Professional Asbestos Surveys and Asbestos Management Plans in Wigan

    Our expert asbestos contractors have been working with property owners and managers to identify and assess the risk of asbestos within their Wigan locations since 2016.

    As the UK law states, it is the ultimate responsibility of building owners and managers to closely inspect their structure for any potential Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACMs). While it can be a difficult task, our team can bring their expertise to help! The Pillars Environmental team offers professional and great value asbestos services in Wigan and the surrounding areas. We have the necessary, in-depth skills to offer bespoke asbestos solutions for your unique circumstance. We pride ourselves on being consistently effective, dependable and always in-line with Health and Safety Executive (HSE) requirements. Safety is our top priority here at Pillars Environmental, so we will only ever work in a way which is safe and compliant for everyone involved.

    Asbestos Surveys in Wigan

    Our friendly team at Pillars Environmental undertake two main types of asbestos surveys:

    The Refurbishment and Demolition Asbestos Survey (R&D Asbestos Survey) is vital for any buildings which were built pre-2000, and are due to have refurbishment works take place soon. It is necessary for full access to be granted during the R&D Survey to fully inspect the building which may contain asbestos. To maximise the value of our R&D Surveys, they are carried out with both visual and intrusive methods.

    Comparatively, an Asbestos Management Survey (AMS) is a much less intrusive process. As the building is likely to be occupied throughout the surveying process, full access is not essential, we would simply require enough to extract and replace the suspected asbestos-containing materials. Where we do have access, the materials will be examined by an accredited lab. If we are unable to gain access to a specific area of the building for any reason, we assume that asbestos is in fact present. Should a specific material be discovered to contain asbestos, other remaining similar materials would also be presumed to have asbestos.

    Asbestos Management Plans in Wigan

    The primary function of an Asbestos Management Plan is to detail how you intend to properly contain and manage any asbestos present in your property. It describes the required steps which you will take to manage the asbestos, who is the key person responsible for each stage, and any necessary training required to fulfil the tasks successfully. These steps are very important in ensuring the safety of anyone who enters the building wherein asbestos is present. 

    Our Asbestos Management Plans can make a record of any ACMs within your Wigan building, whether that be a domestic or commercial property and describe the correct course of action. These steps can include: monitor and review, conduct remedial works, or asbestos removal. 

    Your tailored Asbestos Management Plan will offer you the tools to mitigate the risk of asbestos and lets you fulfil your legal obligations in the management of asbestos risks.

    Asbestos Removal Management in Wigan

    Asbestos removal is both a complex endeavour, which is why the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) strictly states that a licenced asbestos contractor is essential for the majority of safe asbestos removal work. Our skilled team can organise and oversee the important removal of asbestos within your Wigan property, whilst always remaining compliant with the Control of Asbestos Regulations. We can handle the job from the beginning, including:

    • Preparing the specifications,
    • Managing the tendering process,
    • Undertaking regular site audits during ongoing work,
    • Providing continuous feedback,
    • Review documentation provided by the removal contractor to ensure information is correct and there is nothing outstanding.

    Our priority is safety for all

    Through offering tailored solutions for a variety of asbestos issues, our dedicated asbestos team will work alongside you to make sure everybody stays safe and compliant at every stage.
