Congratulations to building surveyor Ryan Lynch in our Chester office who has become a qualified asbestos surveyor.
Ryan has gained the title after passing his BOHS P402 Certificate for asbestos surveys and sampling.
He joins the firm’s other qualified asbestos surveyors Gary Melling, Lewis Paterson and Rob Worthington in this field.
All commercial buildings built prior to 2000 need to hold an updated Asbestos Management Plan. Asbestos refurbishment and demolition surveys also need to be completed prior to the commencement of any refurbishment or development works on a building built prior to 2000 also.
Commenting on the qualification, Ryan said: “Complying with asbestos regulations is an area where building owners need robust specialist advice. Nothing can be left to chance when it comes to dealing with asbestos in buildings.
“I’m pleased to be part of the Jones Melling team that’s helping landlords, tenants and developers to use, refurbish and redevelop their buildings responsibly. Being qualified as an asbestos surveyor allows the firm to expand its provision of asbestos-related advice.”
Meanwhile, the firm is continuing to expand its knowledge of party wall surveying matters. Our building surveyor Paul Dennis has recently been accepted to join the esteemed Pyramus and Thisbe Club which acts as a knowledge base for party wall surveyors.
The club, founded in 1974, is named after two ill-fated lovers from who feature in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The pair are separated by a wall in adjoining houses and forbidden to marry because of a dispute between their fathers.
The Pyramus and Thisbe club allows party wall surveyors to gain knowledge on matters relating to the Party Wall ect Act 1996 by attending seminars, conferences and other networking events with fellow members.
All of our Jones Melling party wall surveyors are also members of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors. Becoming a member requires going through a number of stages of training and examination to ensure the advice provided is of the highest standard.
