Why Do I need a survey for a building permit?
On September 1, 2001, Senate Bill 509 was passed into law, affecting permits issued on or after January 1, 2002. This Bill requires municipalities to verify that an asbestos survey has been conducted prior to issuing renovation or demolition permits for public or commercial buildings. This survey shall be in accordance with the Texas Asbestos Health Protection Rules (hereafter referred to as TAHPR) and the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (hereafter referred to as NESHAP). For this purpose, a commercial building is defined as a non-residential structure or apartment building (greater than two dwelling units). A public building would include schools, churches, and government buildings (federal, state, county, and local).
Therefore, any permit issued for demolition or renovation of a public or commercial building, as defined herein, shall not be issued until verification that an asbestos survey has been conducted in accordance with the TAHPR and NESHAP.
The cost for an inspection will vary depending upon the size and complexity of the project.
Please call us direct for a faster response and quote. The fee is dependent on the number of samples and location of the project. The total number of bulk samples required for analysis is dependent on the number of suspected asbestos containing building materials (ACBMS) identified in the field. At least 3 samples of each suspect material must be obtained and analyzed to satisfy the requirements of the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS).
