Analysis of building materials

Many buildings contain substances and materials that  are harmful to humans and the environment. In connection with  demolition or renovation of old buildings, it is therefore necessary to identify if  there are  environmentally hazardous substances. Unpleasant surprises can be avoided  by conducting  analyses prior to starting the demolition work.
