A comprehensive building survey is needed to accurately ascertain the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACM). However, a limited survey can provide a certain degree of comfort prior to real estate transactions. This type of survey provides basic qualitative information regarding the presence of ACM in the facility, but is not intended to identify all ACM materials that may be present.
More comprehensive surveys are needed to identify ACM prior to renovations or demolitions. These surveys typically identify the condition of the materials observed and provide an estimated quantity of ACM in the building. In addition, BEC can provide abatement recommendations and budgetary cost estimates for remediation with this type of survey.
Regardless of the scope, BEC’s accredited and appropriately licensed professionals conduct accurate asbestos surveys and analyze all samples using Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) by NVLAP-accredited and state licensed/certified laboratories.
