As your Asbestos Management Plan should state, over and above the current Management Level asbestos survey, as soon as any refurbishment or demolition works come into view, then a Refurbishment / Demolition level asbestos survey must be carried out and all discovered asbestos has to be removed prior to the rest of the works commencing. Regulations 5 and 6 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 refer.
Please note : Only the areas to be refurbished / demolished (together with further areas where piping and wiring will be affected), need to be surveyed here ~ not necessarily, the whole building (if other parts are unaffected).
Fire damaged areas must be surveyed to the Refurbishment / Demolition level before re-instatement can commence.
