A full refurbishment /demolition (R&D) asbestos survey was carried out to this Victorian Chapel, near Leeds in West Yorkshire. The building was last altered in the 1980s, and is now being converted into mixed commercial and residential usage.
Some areas of the ground floor ceiling voids were contaminated with asbestos insulating board. However the most interesting find on the survey was through a manhole cover in the gent’s toilet – an old boiler room with boiler unit still present. The entirety of this basement area was contaminated with amosite and crocidolite asbestos debris and residues.
Ranson Surveying were able to advise the client on the safe removal of all these asbestos containing materials (ACMs), and the subsequent decontamination of the basement boiler room and ground floor ceiling void areas, so that the development could continue according to plan and on time.
