What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a set of six naturally occurring silicate minerals i.e., long, thin fibrous crystals, with each visible fiber composed of millions of microscopic “fibrils” that can be released by abrasion and other processes. Recently introduced legislation in NZ has focused on the risks emanating from the use of asbestos in our buildings. Asbestos in one form or another was used in NZ construction from 1940 to 2011.

Asbestos Removal

Our Approach

The approach taken by MBIE (Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment) is in 3 parts

1. Asbestos Survey And Assessment.

Building owners are responsible for determining if asbestos is present or not. Often this will require some Asbestos testing as it is not always possible to precisely determine the presence of asbestos by visual means for example on asbestos ceilings

2. Asbestos Management Plan.

If the assessment shows asbestos exists or is likely to be present, then the building owner must have a plan which outlines :

• Where the asbestos is located
• Type of asbestos present
• What measures must be taken if working close to the asbestos
• Measures to be taken when working with the asbestos

3. Asbestos removal.

Fairview’s trained staff are available to help out Property owners with – asbestos assessment and asbestos management plans. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
