RPS Managing National Asbestos Management Project for schools

Since 2011, RPS has been managing a national asbestos management project in schools throughout Ireland. The Office of Public Works (OPW) appointed RPS along with two other consultants to complete asbestos surveys in schools identified for refurbishment. The surveys are carried out in cooperation with two other consultants and schools are assigned to each consultant on a rotational basis, therefore evenly distributing the work involved.

The RPS responsibilities have included:

Refurbishment asbestos surveys to identify Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs)

Preparation of reports and removal specifications for the asbestos

Follow up supervision of the removal works

An air test and approval / clearance of the works
