Asbestos Services

Intona has completed a rigorous process of assessment, including a full audit of their systems and surveying techniques, and in return for its efforts has been awarded the International Standard ISO 17020 UKAS accreditation (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) for its asbestos surveying service.

This is a very prestigious accreditation, and this is the internationally recognised asbestos surveying standard. It is an indication of the high quality of service we provide to our customers. Intona are the only UKAS accredited asbestos surveying company in Tayside, Angus and Perth, and one of less than 25 in the whole of Scotland.

We offer the following Asbestos Survey services to Commercial, Industrial and Domestic properties:
Management Survey

This is a non-disruptive inspection with samples taken where possible. This allows the client to choose whether to remove or manage any asbestos-containing material (A.C.M.) that is found in the property.

Refurbishment / Demolition Survey

This survey is an “in-depth” inspection with all areas to be inspected with full exposure work (in the case of demolition) and areas affected on a refurbishment (i.e. walls, ceilings, floors, etc.). These surveys give any contractor confidence to commence work without fear of contamination to their workforce or customers.

Re-Inspection Survey

Asbestos re-inspection is a legal requirement and in most cases should be carried out every 12 months and undertaken on buildings that have previously had an Asbestos Management survey carried out where asbestos containing material has been identified.

What to look for

Asbestos has been used in countless products – electric light fittings, toilet seats & cisterns, electrical fuses, floor and ceiling tiles, decorative coatings to name only a few.

It is impossible for the layperson to be sure whether asbestos is present in a product. If any doubt, the best and safest plan is to call in an expert.

How we fix it

In reality, every job is different, and it would be wrong to suggest that a standard approach can be taken.

When you contact us, our surveyors will visit the affected property and carry out a detailed inspection and prepare a full written report. we will then discuss what needs to be done and explain how we will approach the task. Our prime concern is to reassure everyone concerned we will give absolute priority to safety.
