Able UK – TERRC site

Franks Portlock was commissioned by complex demolition specialists, ABLE UK, to survey four US vessels – USS Canisteo, USS Calossahatchee, USS Canopus and USS Compass Island – for asbestos over a period of five months.

Franks Portlock conducted the surveys at the Teesside Environmental Reclamation & Recycling Centre (TERRC) in Hartlepool.

Franks Portlock completed the asbestos surveying as described in the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and our work was instrumental in the decommissioning of the four US naval vessels.

As the work progressed, we were asked by ABLE UK to carry out asbestos air testing and clearance certification during the asbestos removal and decommissioning programme.

Our work on the asbestos surveying of these naval vessels led to Franks Portlock being commissioned by ABLE UK to complete air testing and clearance certification on the French aircraft carrier, the Clemenceau. This was one of the biggest asbestos removal projects of the time in Europe and our work with ABLE UK has been highly significant.

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.
