When referring to asbestos, many categorize it as something you must test for the presence of, in an effort to remove it. Others may classify it as an Indoor Air Quality concern, requiring frequent testing to detect the presence of airborne (friable) asbestos.
While The Scott Lawson Group, Ltd. is capable of testing for the presence of asbestos related to abatement procedures or Indoor Air Quality concerns, we also provide a range of solutions for managing asbestos in your building(s):
Building owners seeking to obtain a demolition and/or a renovation permit must have an asbestos survey performed. Therefore, knowing whether you have asbestos in your building (where it is, and how much you have) is the first step to properly managing how you deal with it. As most surveys are designed to support the need for abatement of asbestos it is common to see a lot of assumption of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) included in survey results. While this is a ‘safe’ approach in the sense that any material that could contain asbestos is removed, it is completely impractical in the sense that cost could be incurred to remove Non-ACM.
We believe the proper approach is the best-practice one. It turns out, this is also the lowest net-cost approach. Our Licensed Inspectors perform thorough, AHERA Compliant surveys identifying the quantity, type and condition of any ACM, giving you the information required to make the best decision in your renovation or demolition activities.
