Fixed Price Surveys
At DS Compliance, we do not charge for each sample we need to take. Whether your building requires 1 sample, or 100, the quote we give you will be the price you pay.
The purpose of the Management Survey is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building, which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition.
The survey will usually involve sampling and analysis, to confirm the presence or absence of ACMs. However a management survey can also involve presuming the presence or absence of asbestos. Samples taken are then analysed by a UKAS accredited laboratory and the results used to compile a register of the ACMs within the premises. The condition of each ACM is assessed and recommendations made regarding their management.
