Diagnosing Materials Pollutants in Buildings

Asbestos, PCB, lead

Although they are now banned from use in construction in Switzerland, asbestos, PCB and lead are still found in many building built before the ban. During work to transform, renovate or demolish older building, these substances pose a health risk to building site and construction workers, and they must be disposed of appropriately.

The IST can carry out tests for and measurements of these banned substances in clients' buildings. The IST can subsequently declare a building or demolition site free of risky or dangerous pollutants.
