Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM)
Buildings that are well looked after provide safe and enjoyable working environments for all. It also ensures that the life expectancy of the building is maximised.
Also, the mechanical and electrical plant and systems within buildings represent a significant capital investment. Without adequate maintenance and inspection, this investment becomes a major liability. Many installations still fail to operate as intended and this can become a burden on your daily operation.
Myriad legislation covers such plant and systems, and we always keep abreast of this to give you peace of mind that you are complying with all of your statutory obligations.
On appointment, we will undertake a visual survey of your building(s), incorporating any information you hold such as existing PPM documentation and/or Operating & Maintenance Manuals and Record Drawings.
We will prepare a spreadsheet identifying all of the systems, plants etc, and a statutory testing and maintenance strategy to ensure compliance with current legislation, manufacturer’s requirements, industry guides or good practice. A technical priority will be given to each item to facilitate cost analysis.
Once the PPM strategy is implemented, it will be managed by the appropriate professional and once service reports and documents are signed off, they will be uploaded to your dedicated password-protected Client Zone on our Web Portal. A hard copy of the documentation will be provided at the year end.
Any remedial works identified during the PPM will be confirmed to you and a quotation provided. Where appropriate we will source a second and third quotation for comparison purposes.
PPM does not remove the need for reactive maintenance, although it does mean that many operations can be carried out in a more orderly and cost-effective manner.
On appointment, you will have access to our wide range of facilities for all breakdowns, repairs and reactive maintenance.
We will determine the most suitable approved contractor to attend site, based on the information provided. We will also evaluate any remedial works suggested by contractors to ensure that they are necessary and value for money.
A dedicated small works automated ordering system is used, which will automatically send an email confirmation with the following:
Name of contractor attending

Buildings and the services within them require refurbishment and adaptation to ensure their continued suitability for use. With every project, we listen to what you want to achieve and look closely at your brief. We collaborate with colleagues and work with energy to bring you new ideas and approaches that will give you pragmatic solutions.
For your ease, all of the contractors individual invoices for PPM are submitted to us and we issue quarterly or bi-annual invoices to you, thereby negating the need for setting up numerous suppliers on your payment system and receiving countless small-value invoices.
