Architects

Trident Surveying has established an excellent reputation with a large number of architects throughout the UK. As a result we possess an in-depth awareness of the needs and requirements of architects with regards to asbestos surveying, and we work in a highly professional and competent manner in order to truly complement the service provided by architects to their own clients.

Architects should be aware of the possibility of disturbing asbestos themselves when accessing old buildings. It is important for architects to know what type of asbestos survey has been undertaken on a building and ensure that the inspection was suitable for a refurbishment or demolition project – for example, an Asbestos Management Survey is more than likely not sufficiently invasive prior to a major refurbishment.

Building projects can be seriously hindered, halted and even bankrupted when asbestos materials are discovered at a later date and it is therefore wise to plan for this eventuality.

From our experience of working with architects, most usually have the necessary level of knowledge of buildings and a good understanding of the most common uses of asbestos materials and may feel competent to obtain samples of unknown and suspicious materials and undertake their own asbestos inspections. However, I would always advise caution as most insurance policies specifically exclude working with asbestos and this should be established beforehand.

Trident Surveying have worked on a diverse range of projects on behalf of architects, ranging from small extensions to large office blocks. By providing a speedy and professional service with clear reports and ongoing support it is no wonder why we are often the first choice for architects and why we are so often recommended by them.
