It is estimated that up to 80% of a buildings whole-life cost can be attributed to running, maintenance and refurbishment costs.

Properly planned maintenance is the key to achieving the maximum life of a building’s fabric and services, to minimizing running costs and ensuring that you meet your statutory obligations as an owner or occupier.

A properly costed & managed maintenance budget allows you or your facilities manger to deal with issues before they become a problem so saving on reactive maintenance. Your staff will also appreciate a working environment that is properly maintained.

We can offer a professional solution to all your needs whether it’s cyclical or planned maintenance, dilapidations works or interior & exterior decorations.

We can assist in the development of your planned/cyclical maintenance programmes including electrical & mechanical services.
