Since 2008, Franks Portlock has provided asbestos surveying, lab analysis, air testing, clearance certification and asbestos consultancy services at North Tyneside Council. This is provided through North Tyneside Council’s joint venture partnership with Kier Building Maintenance (Kier North Tyneside), which provides maintenance and repairs for North Tyneside’s social housing and public buildings.
We provide ongoing, continuous support to Kier North Tyneside/ North Tyneside Council to a wide range of accommodation types throughout the area including:
The majority of our survey work takes the form of pre-refurbishment surveys. These are normally in response to planned heating, kitchen, bathroom and electrical upgrades.
Our flexible service means that we can quickly turnaround recently vacated properties for a client where we are required to conduct the asbestos survey and report the inspection within 48 hours.
Throughout our work, we provide the highest level of service to enhance safety and minimise risk.
All of our laboratory analysis for Kier North Tyneside/ North Tyneside Council is carried out in our laboratory in Sunderland, which holds the requisite UKAS accreditation to ISO/ IEC 17025.
We are proud to be continuing our work with them and providing asbestos management services.
