Construction Companies & Building Contractors

Trident Surveying are the first choice of many of the UK's leading construction companies, as well as being the preferred supplier to a wide variety of smaller building contractors and private house builders when it comes to their asbestos surveying needs. We have vast experience of assisting construction companies and building contractors to comply with current asbestos regulations, asbestos related issues and providing them with expert advice on asbestos.

Our knowledge, expertise and experience is particularly useful when working with construction companies and building contractors due to the fact that asbestos is present in many materials used in the construction industry, often till as late as the 1990's. This means that no building can be considered “asbestos free” until a thorough asbestos survey has been carried out. Although asbestos has been banned in UK construction since the mid 1980's, certain Asbestos Containing materials (ACMs) were still manufactured and used until 1999. It is estimated that at least 50% of all asbestos ever used in the construction of buildings in the UK is still present.

Not all asbestos presents a health risk and in most cases, there is no need to have it removed. However, it should be recognised that if disturbed or damaged by maintenance work or accident, that certain types of asbestos do present a significant risk to health. There is no safe level for asbestos and the affects of exposure to asbestos can be horrific.

The consequences of failure to comply with asbestos legislation are severe too and include large financial penalties, imprisonment, ineligibility for employers and public liability insurance and refusal by maintenance and utility companies to conduct repairs and installation of essential services. A professional Trident survey could therefore save you a lot of time, money, hassle and, of course, lives.
