Emerald Architects

Franks Portlock is often required to help home-owners with concerns they might have with their own properties.

Our work with home owners normally involves sampling suspect materials and conducting surveys prior to refurbishment work.

Asbestos in private homes is always a concern if it goes undetected, especially for those families with children.

We recently worked with a property in Low Fell, Gateshead that was directed by local architecture firm, Emerald Architects. This involved a complete refit of the premises which needed complete renovation and some reconfiguring of internal walls.

Our surveyor was able to attend the site and ensure that the works could go ahead safely, highlighting issues before the works commenced to ensure that that works aren’t interrupted during the programme.

The new occupants could also be assured that the property doesn’t contain asbestos before they move in.

During a recent review by our Health and Safety consultant, it was noted that a Legionella Risk Assessment was necessary for our studio. We contacted Franks Portlock who undertook a full review of the premises and provided us with a greater understanding of the UK regulations and requirements. Sean Green supplied us with a detailed Legionella risk assessment and offered pragmatic advice and guidance on the procedures required to remain compliant, the whole process was seamless from start to finish.. Sean attention to detail and dedication was faultless throughout the entire process and it was a pleasure to work with both him and the team.

The de Ferrers Trust

Six months ago, we instructed Sean and the team at Franks Portlock for their services in Water Hygiene and we have been blown away by the service he has provided us. We have a number of different schools on board with him that range from full water hygiene monthly management, to RA's and Annual services. When tendering we found that Frank's Portlocks cost were similar to what we were already paying, however the level of detail that the contract covers far outweighs any previous contract we've ever had. The Monthly meetings have made a massive difference in ensuring that faults and risk items are dealt with promptly and appropriately. As the person who oversees compliance across our trust, I no longer have to worry about the water hygiene compliance in our schools that use Franks Portlock.
