Franks Portlock worked with a wider team of consultants to deliver the first 50 UK Pep & Co. stores. We were responsible for reviewing asbestos management information within the premises identified.
Franks Portlock interrogated the existing management and refurbishment surveys available for the target stores and compared them to the proposed refitting works for Pep & Co.
We highlighted where the existing information was insufficient, so that it could be remedied either via the landlord or by visiting the site ourselves to conduct a full or partial survey.
Our work meant that any problems discovered could be remedied prior to occupancy therefore meaning that our client’s asbestos liability is minimal from the start of their tenancy.
It was rewarding to be involved at such an early stage in the development of the business.
