Hazardous building materials

Hazardous building materials, such as asbestos, PCBs and PAHs, are an important issue in any conversion or demolition of buildings constructed before 1990.

We are a SUVA-approved consulting office and meet the quality requirements of Forum Asbestos Switzerland (FACH). In ambiguous cases, we clarify whether pollutants actually exist and help plan and optimise necessary remediation measures. Our experience has shown that, if detected in good time, unnecessary additional costs can be avoided when remediating contaminated sites.

Our services include:
  • Hazardous material investigation / Building checks
  • Building screening
  • Redevelopment concepts
  • Cost estimates for hazardous material remediation
  • Execution planning
  • Tender (submission)
  • Specialist construction management of hazardous building materials (asbestos, PCB, PAK)
  • Air measurements
  • VDI measurement (measurement of the concentration of asbestos fibres in the air according to VDI guideline 3492)
  • Effectiveness and success monitoring
