The asbestos present is non-friable and only poses a risk when disturbed. The project team believes that the demolition of some of the units and relocation of others will disturb the asbestos and recommends removal prior to the beginning of these works.
All asbestos found was contained within the External Cement based cladding systems (fascia boards, toilet entrance canopy soffit, external wall cladding). These cladding systems had little to no damage and posed a “low risk” (out of High, Medium and Low risk options) through general occupancy of these areas. Buildings that contain asbestos that is in a stable condition (no matter the location of the asbestos) are assumed to be a “low risk” to occupancy.
The following methodology will be followed
The planning process is thorough and robust and meets industry standards.
