Speak to an Expert

The London Borough of Southwark appointed Pennington Choices to carry out expert asbestos surveying and analytical services across their domestic and commercial portfolio.

The Challenge

The main building has significant internal and external areas that are grade 2 listed, so a survey plan was required. The Farmiloe Building is also located on a busy high street in East London.

What We Did

Prior to commencing on site, we performed a site visit to gain additional familiarity with the building and its layout. Our site visit prepared our team in advance to make sure the scope of the survey outlined by H Smith Engineers was comprehensive for their planned maintenance works and to make sure we delivered our survey with a sympathetic approach for the building’s protected status.

Our Achievements

Once we had finalised our survey plan with our client, our surveyors delivered the refurbishment and demolition survey. We analysed our samples in our local UKAS accredited laboratory. Our local resource delivered the survey, tested the samples and produced the final report within five days. Our survey and subsequent report was produced in accordance with HSG264 – Asbestos: The Survey Guide and the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
