Expert Witness Service

Colin McCartney, Managing Director of Asbestos Building Surveys Ltd (ABS) is often called on as a respected industry figure to provide an expert witness service. Having worked within the asbestos industry for over 30 years, he has a tremendous knowledge of the ever-changing legal obligations surrounding asbestos and its management, as well as how to practically apply these laws to any given project.

Colin is chosen by professionals throughout the UK to deliver talks and training to industry and professional bodies, including RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors), NICEIC (National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting), the CII (Chartered Insurance Institute) and the NHS (National Health Service). So, if you are looking for an independent expert or professional witness that can provide specialist knowledge or evidence in relation to asbestos, then CONTACT US.

Sample Analysis

ABS Ltd currently outsources the analysis of our samples to a range of UKAS accredited laboratories, depending on location and price to ensure the quickest and most accurate results possible.

However, with a new in-house laboratory currently under construction, we aim to be able to provide UKAS accredited sampling expertise in early 2016. Watch this space!


We are a UKAS accredited (Inspection Body No.0298) Asbestos Surveying Consultancy that provides UK-wide Asbestos Surveying and Sampling services across the public and private sectors.  Our friendly, specialist staff will ensure that you remain compliant with all HSE legislation, while ensuring a safe working or living environment for your staff, tenants and family alike.
