Although not as heavily industrialised as the North of England used to be there are still a large number of industrial estates throughout the South as well as schools, colleges and universities.
RJS Waste Management have fully qualified asbestos surveyors and cover the following areas.
We offer asbestos surveys in Hampshire including:
- Southampton and
and also offer asbestos surveys in towns across Sussex including:
- Bognor Regis
- Worthing and
All of these sites have the potential to contain asbestos to some extent if they were constructed before 2000CE and landlords will have a duty to manage any asbestos containing materials.
In the decades following the Second World War a massive reconstruction and rebuilding effort was undergone and saw projects to create housing in the form of high-rise towers and large council estates. During this time the South also saw regrowth of industrial and commercial premises.
This period of regrowth just happened to be during the 50s, 60 and 70s, which were also the peak period for imports of asbestos to the UK.
With so much asbestos in factories, schools and houses it is important that landlords have a management plan in place to avoid fibre release during every day use and maintenance.
The only way to achieve this is to have the property surveyed for asbestos by a competent person.
