Maintenance

Building, Electrical and Mechanical Services ensure that all buildings, either owned or leased, are properly maintained and structurally safe. Our aim is to ensure that all building, mechanical and electrical services are installed correctly and function in a safe, efficient and reliable manner using our in-house teams supplemented by specialist contractors. Throughout, a high priority is given to meeting health, safety and environment and legislative requirements with high standards of customer delivery.

The following repair and maintenance services are provided by Technicians and Handy Persons:

  • Air Handling/Conditioning
  • Plumbing
  • Joinery
  • Electrical Lighting
  • Electrical Power
  • Electrical and Mechanical water, heating and plant services
  • Fire Prevention Systems and Equipment
  • Painting (Remedial – Not Redecoration)

Our teams aim to deliver quality work which is supported by a number of specialist maintenance contractors who are vetted on a regular basis in terms of performance and service delivery.

Repairs are minimised by operating a Planned Preventive Maintenance (PPM) regime which involves regular checks to ensure the safe function of important building and mechanical items. For example, all fire doors are checked regularly to ensure safe access to and egress from buildings. Water systems, boilers and plant are inspected and monitored regularly to ensure they are properly maintained. All fire alarms are checked regularly to ensure that they work safely.
