An asbestos survey should always be carried out when demolishing a building completed before 1994. The asbestos survey will determine the quantity, quality, location and dustiness class of the asbestos, put forward a proposal for the demolition method and take into account other possible hazardous materials.
An asbestos survey, i.e., a hazardous materials survey, is a survey conducted by a professional specialised in asbestos and other hazardous materials that takes into account lead, PCB and PAH compounds in addition to asbestos. The survey will determine the quantity, quality, location and dustiness class of the asbestos, put forward a proposal for the demolition method and take into account other possible hazardous materials.
Asbestos was used in construction until 1994, when its use was banned altogether. According to asbestos legislation, the developer or the overseer of a construction project must ensure that there is no asbestos in the structures of a building to be demolished and that any asbestos found is properly removed by means of asbestos removal work (Government Decree 1380/1994, Section 3).
Consequently, an asbestos survey must be carried out in practically every building built before 1994 prior to the start of demolition work. Asbestos surveys are carried out by the Purkupiha Group’s subsidiary, Dammega Oy.
Once the asbestos survey has been completed, it becomes possible to proceed to asbestos removal. We even carry out demanding asbestos removals with more than 15 years of experience. Read more about asbestos removal work.
Material sample analysis
In addition to surveys, we also provide site-specific material sample analysis. The analysis includes the retrieval of material samples from the site, delivery of the samples to a laboratory and delivery of the analysis statement to the customer. With sample analysis, it is easy and quick to verify whether a site contains asbestos or other hazardous materials.
