Efficient and Reliable Asbestos Surveys and Management Plans in Blackpool
Since 2016, our dedicated team have been helping building owners and managers to identify and assess the asbestos risk within their Blackpool premises.
UK law states that it is the duty of the building owners and managers to fully assess their building for any asbestos that may be present. This is a difficult task to complete, but that is where we can help! The Pillars Environmental team provides asbestos services in Blackpool and the surrounding areas, to offer support and peace of mind to owners and managers. We have the extensive knowledge and understanding needed to provide a tailored asbestos solution for your unique situation. We pride ourselves on always being reliable, efficient and up to date with Health and Safety Executive (HSE) legislation.
Asbestos Surveys in Blackpool
At Pillars Environmental, we carry out two main types of asbestos surveys:
- Refurbishment and Demolition asbestos surveys.
- Asbestos Management Surveys.
The Refurbishment and Demolition Asbestos Survey (R&D Asbestos Survey) is required for any property that was 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 full access to all areas of the building which might contain asbestos.
An Asbestos Management survey is far less invasive. Instead of needing full access, we would instead just remove and replace ceiling tiles, as the building is likely to remain occupied throughout the survey. Where access is available, the materials will be tested. If for any reason we cannot gain access to an area of the building, it would be assumed that asbestos is present. If material is found to have asbestos all other similar materials will be presumed to be containing asbestos too.
Asbestos Management Plans in Blackpool
An asbestos management plan describes in detail how you intend to manage and contain any asbestos found within your building. It sets out the stages that will be undertaken to manage the asbestos status, who is in charge of handling each stage and any training required to complete the tasks fully. These are to ensure that those who may enter the building will remain protected against asbestos.
Our asbestos management plans can create a record of any asbestos-containing materials in your Blackpool property and define the appropriate course of action needed. This can include monitor and review, undertake remedial works or remove.
Your bespoke asbestos management plan will give you the tools to manage the risk of asbestos and allows you to fulfil your legal obligations in managing the asbestos risks.
Asbestos Removal Management in Blackpool

All our asbestos management services are fully comprehensive. This means we can handle the job from start to finish, including:
