Asbestos Survey and Abatement

Premier’s Asbestos Survey and Abatement service provides everything you need to identify and safely remove any asbestos containing materials (ACMs). We’ll provide third-party oversight and consulting services for your abatement project, which typically involves documenting regulatory compliance; collecting air samples; and providing site visit reports on a daily or periodic basis, to document progress and respond to any issues that may arise.

Our standard Asbestos Survey consists of the following:

  • Site visit to complete a visual inspection of all readily accessible building areas to identify and delineate suspected ACM.
  • Sample collection for analysis by an accredited laboratory.
  • Preparation of a summary report containing floorplans that depict the locations of all materials and samples collected; lab certificates of analysis; a photographic log; a regulatory overview; and general recommendations and reporting of quantities as applicable.

Designated Substances Survey (DSS) and Hazardous Building Materials Assessment (HBMA)

Premier’s team of qualified building assessors have completed these surveys (referred to as DSS in Ontario and HBMA in other Canadian provinces such as British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec, and Nova Scotia) in all sizes and types of buildings – from single-family homes, to high-rise office buildings, to industrial facilities such as paper mills. These surveys and reports are relied upon by regulators, who will be looking for appropriate management of potentially dangerous “designated substances” that have been identified on your property. We can quickly and efficiently survey your portfolio of buildings across Canada and assign a Senior Professional to be your single point of contact for all properties to make things easy.

Mould Assessment and Abatement

Health effects due to mould exposure vary and any amount of mould growth in a building can pose an unacceptable health risk. Our team of building surveyors are experienced with completing mould assessments in a wide variety of residential, commercial, and industrial settings. Owners, property managers, and insurance companies rely on Premier’s quick response time to identify the causes and extent of mould, and any mould-related impacts. We’re also relied on to respond to any tenant and employee concerns. A project manager with Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT) training will be assigned to oversee mould projects.
