Hexham and Newcastle RC Diocese (Voluntary Aided Schools)

Franks Portlock has been providing asbestos inspection and testing services to the Hexham and Newcastle Roman Catholic Diocese for their Voluntary Aided Schools across the North East of England since 2011, working within 50 schools to date.

Working with Diocese consultants, we offer a comprehensive range of asbestos services, being an integral part of project planning and proposed refurbishments by conducting asbestos refurbishment and demolition surveys. In addition, Franks Portlock carries out a number of management surveys for school premises where we feel a complete resurvey would be beneficial.

Due to the nature of school buildings and their occupants, it is essential that our work is carried out thoroughly, discreetly and flexibly so projects can progress safely to ensure protection from the risks of damaged asbestos.

We are proud of our continued work with the Diocese to ensure that Voluntary Aided Schools across the region are free from the risk of airborne asbestos wherever we are involved.

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.

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.
