North Tyneside Council (Kier North Tyneside)

Since 2008, Franks Portlock has provided asbestos surveying, lab analysis, air testing, clearance certification and asbestos consultancy services to North Tyneside Council.

A lot of this work was provided during the venture partnership with Kier Building Maintenance (Kier North Tyneside), from 2009 to 2019, providing maintenance and repairs for North Tyneside’s social housing and public buildings.

In 2019, we were awarded a 3-year framework contract to continue providing these services to North Tyneside Council. We provide ongoing, continuous support to North Tyneside Council to a wide range of accommodation types throughout the area including:

  • Accommodation block common areas
  • External garages
  • Flats and maisonettes
  • Terraced and semi-detached houses
  • Care homes

Our flexible service means that we can quickly turnaround recently vacated properties for our client where we are required to conduct the asbestos survey and report the inspection within 48 hours.

All our laboratory analysis for North Tyneside Council is carried out in our laboratory in Sunderland, which holds the requisite UKAS accreditation to ISO/ IEC 17025.

In addition, as part of this contract we are committed to undertaking a range of CSR projects within the local area.

Throughout our work, we provide the highest level of service to enhance safety and minimise risk. We are proud to be continuing our work with North Tyneside Council.

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.
