Hazardous Material Surveys
Contact us today for pre-demolition, pre-renovation, or pre-purchase hazardous materials surveys.
Prior to a building renovation, a proper pre-project renovation survey is required to ensure that building occupants, as well as any contracted trades, are not exposed to asbestos fibres or any other hazardous materials which may be present.
Astech’s survey and report format are designed specifically to satisfy the current applicable regulation from the WCB Occupational Health and Safety Regulation 20.112 regarding hazardous building material assessments by qualified key personnel who are deemed a “qualified person” by WCB.
The main component of Astech’s pre-renovation hazardous building materials survey is to sample all fibrated building materials of differing ages of installation and location that the WCB considers asbestos until such time as laboratory analysis determines otherwise. Proper sampling protocol, which includes collecting adequate quantities of samples from a building, is necessary to assure that abatement requirements are clearly defined so that there are no extras to the abatement contractor’s scope of work, therefore keeping costs and project schedules to a minimum.
Please contact us for a proposal outlining our services. Also, any proposed fee schedules should be considered as an upset maximum price. Should fewer hours or samples be required, the savings will be passed on. Conversely, should additional hours or samples be required, they will be included at our cost.
