Asbestos Surveys at the Statutory Support Services – A Case Study
Below you will find details of our project around delivering asbestos surveys for the Statutory Support Services.
Statutory Support Services is an independent national provider of specialist building maintenance services. The clients they provide services to are from various sectors but mainly retail and hospitality.
Statutory Support Services employ Acorn on various contracts to ensure that the end user client is fully asbestos compliant.
Asbestos Surveys, Reinspections and Remedial Works
We complete asbestos surveys and reinspections across the UK and Ireland for the various end user clients. New asbestos surveys are usually undertaken because the client is looking at or has purchased a new property for their portfolio. As the sites, can be anywhere across the country they are serviced from either our Northampton or Leeds offices.
Once the surveys have been completed they then fall into the annual reinspection category whereby we complete a yearly condition check of any asbestos items at the sites. The previous report is compared against the asbestos containing material to check for any signs of deterioration. We always update the photograph of the item and when asbestos has deteriorated or damage has occurred the surveyor also makes appropriate notes.
This is then passed onto the remedial team to deal with whereby Acorn prepare a specification for the works and arrange for suitable contractors to provide quotes. When the works are undertaken Acorn manage the process and also provide analytical support to ensure everything is safe upon completion.
Full Turnkey Service
We provide the specialist additional services that are required by the end user client. Having worked within the retail and hospitality sectors for a number of years Acorn fully understand the needs of their businesses. We plan our works around the stores and restaurants busy periods on a day to day and annual basis to ensure that the stores trading is never affected by our works.
Since working with Acorn they have exceeded the council’s expectations with their high standards and innovative working methods.
