     3    10.  Prior  to  advertising  for bids or contracting for or commencing
     4  work on any demolition work on  buildings  covered  under  this  section
     5  except  agricultural  buildings as defined in regulations promulgated by
     6  the commissioner [and except buildings the  construction  of  which  was
     7  begun  on  or  after  January first, nineteen hundred seventy-four], all
     8  owners and their agents, except owners of one and  two-family  dwellings
     9  who contract for but do not direct or control the work, shall conduct or
    10  cause  to be conducted a survey to determine whether or not the building
    11  to be demolished contains asbestos or asbestos material  as  defined  in
    12  section  nine  hundred  one  of  this  chapter.  Such  surveys  shall be
    13  conducted in conformance with rules and regulations promulgated  by  the

    17  or  local  laws  or,  if no such permit is required, to the town or city
    18  clerk. If such survey finds that a building to  be  demolished  contains

    20  the chapter, no bids shall be advertised nor contracts awarded nor demo-
    21  lition work commenced by any owner or agent prior to  completion  of  an
