University of Sunderland

Franks Portlock has provided a comprehensive range of asbestos services, including consultancy, inspection, testing and management, to the University of Sunderland since 2011.

The University’s portfolio of existing and newly acquired buildings poses many different challenges for asbestos management and we demonstrate our expertise in providing asbestos management surveys for premises which vary greatly in terms of age and construction. We also carry out refurbishment and demolition asbestos surveys prior to modifications to the University’s existing portfolio of buildings.

In addition to inspection works, Franks Portlock provide asbestos clearance certification in the form of four stage clearance as outlined by the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and HSG248 following licensed asbestos removal programmes and general reassurance air testing.

We provide ongoing support to the University offering general consultancy advice and delivering raw data to integrate with the University’s own management/monitoring systems to ensure effective asbestos management.

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.
