Asbestos was extensively used in construction materials up until the late 1990s, and is present in a significant number of buildings.

How can the S2 Partnership help?
The S2 Partnership delivers Asbestos management services which ensure compliance and protect health. Our team of experienced, qualified consultants and surveyors provide asbestos surveys, sampling, management systems and project management to offer a complete asbestos risk management solution.
We also understand the urgency associated with many asbestos projects – and always seek to ensure we’re on site at a time convenient for you. We frequently oversee asbestos works out of hours and provide emergency advice in the event of asbestos disturbance.
Our asbestos management systems are simple but effective including; policy information, survey reports, asbestos registers, risk assessments, CAD drawings and photographs and management information (such as training records, permit to work, asbestos notice, monitoring and audit records).
Our recommendations are focused on effectively managing asbestos in a building. Costly removal of asbestos is not always the best solution, and our recommendations will reflect this. Where asbestos removal or encapsulation is the best option, we offer a full project management service which includes writing specifications, liaising with and helping select contractors and overseeing works.
The S2 Partnership also provides training in asbestos awareness and project management to empower building managers and occupiers in identifying and managing asbestos risks.
The S2 Partnership provides unbiased, professional consultancy advice to protect clients and safeguard the health and safety of individuals.
The S2 Partnership employs asbestos surveyors who qualified to P402 as a minimum (most also hold P405 too). Sample analysis is undertaken by our nominated UKAS accredited laboratory.
