DRIGHLINGTON property compliance specialists Inspectas is marking 10 years in business with four new appointments, a senior promotion and a move into new premises.

The 40-strong business is expanding its team with the appointment of major projects, fire and compliance chief operating officer Neil Triggs; fire compliance services divisional lead Michael Shone; health & safety divisional lead Naveed Mohammed; senior director land remediation Andrew Ford and the promotion of Fiona Lindsay to Operations director.

With a decade working in the public and private sectors specialising in asbestos surveys and removal, fire safety, health and safety compliance and land remediation, Inspectas has recently moved to new premises on Bradford Road in Drighlington, doubling its office space to allow further team and departmental growth.

Said Neil Triggs: “Legal compliance around fire safety is becoming increasingly complex particularly following the Grenfell tragedy. My role, supported by our new fire compliance divisional lead Michael Shone, is to develop our fire safety division and lead our team of fire safety consultants and surveyors to demystify the property compliance process for all businesses and take the worry out of navigating the regulations.”

Naveed Mohammed, joins the company following 23 years of experience in construction consultancy construction design and management regulations and asbestos, while Andrew Ford specialises in the remediation of invasive weeds alongside land clearance and preparation.

Fiona’s promotion follows eight years with the company and 15 years in the asbestos industry.

Inspectas was formed in 2013 by asbestos management professionals Craig Candlish and Matthew Fahy who felt the industry had become slow moving, with a reputation for being unreliable.

They combined their expertise to launch Inspectas Compliance and today have a portfolio of more than 150 clients in the education, healthcare, retail, construction and industrial sectors.

Director Craig Candlish said: “After a decade specialising in raising asbestos compliance and management standards across the UK, our move into our larger premises and the appointment of Neil, Michael, Naveed and Andrew, alongside Fiona’s promotion, reflects our commitment to developing our services even further with an additional focus on fire safety, health and safety and land remediation across multiple sectors.

“In our tenth anniversary year, we’re delighted to continue our strategy of bringing the very best property and land compliance practitioners into the Inspectas family and increasing our capacity to deliver trusted expertise in areas of significant concern for businesses.”
