Asbestos testing, reporting & disposal
Throughout Australia, there are various laws in place related to asbestos testing and the safe removal of asbestos. This is because asbestos is an extremely hazardous material with the potential to cause long term damage. From 2012, all buildings constructed before 2004 were required to comply with strict legislation in place in regards to asbestos. When it comes to asbestos disposal and safe removal, audits and development plans, the team as Abscan Building Consultants is here to assist.
Contaminated soil testing
Hazardous materials come in all shapes and sizes—another example is contaminated soil which may be present on the grounds of a residential or commercial property. A soil sample may be taken and tested to identify whether any form of contamination is present. This is an essential step which should be completed before the construction of a new building begins. At Abscan Building Consultants, we provide thorough NATA laboratory testing which identifies a variety of potential contaminants.
Meth lab testing
Exposure to chemical contamination from the manufacture of illicit drugs such as methylamphetamines poses very serious health risks. This is why it’s important to have properties tested that have been exposed to this because harmful substances can be absorbed into the walls or flooring. Our team can also assist with testing for hazardous materials such as this, performing a throughout report to determine if a property is safe.
