Goodyer is an insurance related property repair specialist, carrying out repairs to both domestic and commercial properties across London and the South East. They typically work on around 100 sites at any one time, dealing with all types of insurance claims including subsidence, fire, flood and storm.
Testing for asbestos is a legal requirement for any project Goodyer carries out, particularly where artex, Marley floor tiles and asbestos sheets are present.
Goodyer say: “We know where there is most likely to be asbestos present but the biggest challenge is often hidden asbestos such as Asbestos Insulating Board (AIB).”
Vintec carry out pre refurbishment asbestos surveys and bulk sampling work on the properties before work is able to commence.
“Because policy holders want to get back in to their properties as quickly as possible after any damage, it’s vital that any testing doesn’t hold us up. We need the surveys carried out at short notice, efficiently and with the results turned around fast.
“Vintec provide a reliable service and test results quickly, including the more detailed R&D surveys. We have had some instances where results are needed within a matter of hours and Vintec have provided the service without any quibbles.”
Vintec have been providing asbestos testing services for 25 years and are one of the leading UKAS accredited providers in this field. Surveys, air monitoring, analysis and advice is provided to Facilities Management companies, local authorities, architects, Healthcare Trusts, building contractors and academia around the UK.
