We are UKAS accredited to EN ISO 17025 to analyse soils, sediments and aggregates and offer a range of asbestos in soils services, including inspection and testing, and on-site services, and can also test for other soils contaminants.
AEC offers soils testing and inspection for asbestos at our laboratory in Manchester, carrying out the three stages of testing:
Stage 1: Initial Bulk Analysis
Stage 2: Gravimetric analysis to determine percentage asbestos in soil by weight
Stage 3: Fibre Counting and Sizing by Phase Contrast Optical Microscopy (PCOM) (Fine Fraction)
We can also test for other contaminants via our approved partners, giving you one point of contact for your soils analysis requirements.
We provide a number of soils services to support you during your construction phases. Working with your preliminary report/findings, we can carry out site surveys and air monitoring and also provide a project manager to work with you to manage/assess the site where asbestos is concerned.
1. Surface assessment for potential asbestos materials on the surface of the land.
2. Working to an agreed method / preliminary report within a gridded plan/trial pits.
