Commercial Property

With the closing of another commercial unit on the outskirts of Durham – Asbestos Audit Ltd has been carrying out refurbishment asbestos surveys.

The project is aimed at regenerating the area and bringing the old commercial units back to life.

With the old building being vacant and no sign of the asbestos register the property was not compliant with the current Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. Asbestos Audit Ltd was brought in to sort out the lack of register and associated AMP (Asbestos Management Plan).

Following the asbestos survey a number of hazardous asbestos products were located including asbestos insulating board debris within some of the areas.

Without an asbestos survey this could have resulted in the workforce carrying out the refurbishment works potentially being exposed to asbestos fibres.

Thankfully this was all avoided by having the asbestos survey carried out well in advance of the proposed refurbishment works.

The property is now fully compliant with the asbestos products removed and a new happy tenant and happier landlord.
