Maintenance 

 

Maintaining and upgrading your built environment ensures you stay in control of your asset, while reducing unnecessary costs by actively preventing breakdowns and systems failures.

We offer maintenance support, compatibility checks, warranty validation, refurbishments and system upgrades, based on your unique needs.

M&E

If you own or run a property, then you'll understand the importance of maintaining a positive internal environment for those who live or work inside the building. Their health and wellbeing are directly impacted by the health of your Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) systems, which is why it's important to rely on an experienced service provider.

Our maintenance services are tailored to suit our clients' specific requirements and delivered by our first-class engineering team. We can do this in several ways:

  • Our Planned Preventive Maintenance (PPM) operations give peace of mind by preventing technical systems failures before they happen, saving time and money, and enhancing the reliability of equipment for the future.
  • We conduct Audits including dilapidation, condition and life cycle reports for an essential overview of the performance of your building – using the latest technology such as thermal scans - so you can make the right decisions for your business based on facts.
  • When problems occur, our Reactive Maintenance services will get you back on track as soon as possible, minimising any adverse effects including loss of productivity, profitability and reputation.
  • In the event of a breakdown, our Maintenance Helpdesk is on the end of the phone ready to mobilise our engineering team to provide a swift solution. In emergencies, our critical support cover for contract clients swings in to action 24/7. Our helpdesk administrators are trained to deal with all situations, allocating work to the right team via our powerful field-management software solution.

HVAC

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are vital to all buildings where conditions are regulated to ensure comfort and good air quality. Neglected, dirty systems will reduce air quality (which is harmful to allergy sufferers), cost more to run and place stress on equipment so that minor repairs turn into costly problems.

Our maintenance services place you in control of your energy usage and costs by ensuring optimal HVAC performance. We upgrade, refurbish and repair systems as well as installing new. We'll find the most cost-effective solution, to extend the life of the equipment. And rest assured, we won't advise extensive work if minor repairs can keep it running efficiently.

BEMS

An effective BEMS (Building & Energy Management System) will help you remain in control of your building to maximise performance, save energy and safeguard your investment. We are experts in the design, installation and maintenance of these systems so you can control and monitor core services such as heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, from the comfort of your laptop or facilities office. This makes the technology easy to upgrade and fault-find, ensuring the perfect environment at the lowest possible running costs. 

When it comes to effective energy management, there's a lot more to it than just reporting on consumption. To enable improvements, you need visibility into your building sub-systems to be able to make informed decisions based on facts. Our energy management system expertise allows us to work seamlessly with your existing controls systems, so we can take appropriate action to reduce energy waste.

Our clients have realised substantial cost savings from relatively simple adjustments to their existing control systems settings.

With our BEMS Remote Support System, we can swiftly and easily identify errors without having to be on-site. Within minutes of reporting an issue our professionally qualified technicians can remotely dial into your BEMS to diagnose and resolve the issue, or dispatch the correct engineer to you, keeping operations on track with minimum disruption.

FIRE & SECURITY SYSTEMS

Our Fire Alarm Services include the design and installation of new systems and the upgrade and maintenance of existing systems. 

 
FIRE

If there's a fire, the system does more than simply sounding the alarm. By auto-transfer, one action will trigger many more critical responses, from shutting down the boiler to opening the smoke vents. By law, the functionality and compliance of this system must be regularly and rigorously checked.

Working to the highest industry standards, our clients have the assurance of knowing our systems will kick into action whenever needed. 

 
SECURITY

To safeguard the built environment, Electronic Access Control provides the most cost-effective and convenient way of securing your property. Installing an access control system means you never have to change a lock again. Our professionally qualified engineers are able to provide a system that puts you in control of who has access to your building and when, so you have all the security you'll need to protect your assets well into the future.

Prevent theft and damage to property and guarantee the safety of your staff with CCTV. This must-have for any modern business will help monitor all movements within your building, from staff to visitors, so you can resolve any disputes that may arise or provide evidence of behaviour that could negatively impact operations.
