Establishing toxic substance registers

We establish toxic substance registers of buildings and assess the urgency for redevelopment according to relevant asbestos, PCB and PCP guidelines and the ARGEBAU (Construction MinistersÂ’ Conference) standards.

In this context we offer
  • Development and implementation of redevelopment projects
  • Development of tender documents
  • Redevelopment monitoring and success control
Asbestos is among the materials with the highest risk potential for pulmonary diseases. Regarding occupational safety, it is essential to eliminate the risk of exposure to asbestos. During redevelopment measures appropriate occupational safety steps must be strictly adhered to.

For our clients, we test for exposure to asbestos or mineral fibres and determine whether redevelopment measures are necessary.

Focal points of our asbestos monitoring

  • Quick and competent examination using state-of-the-art scanning electron microscopes
  • We offer a 24-hour service on request
