Our services:

Highly qualified facilities engineers

We have an excellent track record when it comes to staff retention. Around half of our engineers have worked for the group for over five years, and many have come through our apprenticeship programme.

We invest heavily in learning and development and have a commitment to developing talent from within.
Through our Academy, we ensure that the skills of our engineers are regularly updated.  We also have a commitment to supporting those starting out, or changing their careers, and over 14% of our workforce are apprentices. The majority of these are engineers, but they also include roles in business and specialist technical apprenticeships.

The investment in our engineering talent results in higher productivity and quality that ultimately lowers costs and minimises mistakes. It also produces people with a passion for improvement and a love for cracking the most challenging engineering problems.

Challenging operating environments

Across the group, our site-based engineers work in Nuclear, Defence, Utilities, Food and Beverage Manufacturing, and Pharmaceutical, Chemical and Industrial facilities.

We understand the distinct operating challenges and protocols that these critical environments demand. But we also know that every facility is different and that each of our clients has their own specific needs and requirements. 

Our teams understand and appreciate the need to adapt to the specific protocols in each facility whilst, at the same time, developing new ideas and approaches based on wider experience.

We understand gateway processes and many of our people are security cleared. And we bring with us a specialist supply chain that also understands the demands of critical environments. 

Asset maintenance strategy

Across the group, our engineers operate advanced asset maintenance strategies for business-critical operating environments in a range of sectors. We ensure machinery and plants run efficiently, extend life expectancy, reduce the risk of costly plant system failure, and reduce unnecessary energy consumption.

We work closely with our clients to agree the most appropriate maintenance approaches for the assets in question – delivering anything from simple break-fix, planned protective maintenance, or condition-based and predictive strategies. This means our clients always get the maintenance approach that’s right for their business.

We have extensive experience in asset condition analysis, asset performance monitoring, asset analytics, applying IoT solutions and utilising asset lifecycle strategies.

Progressive, compliant and responsible partnerships

With many of our customers, we operate within structured strategic supply-chain environments which focus on:

  • Strategic objectives and plans
  • Collaborative working
  • Joint development initiatives
  • Open-book relationships
  • Pain/gain models

We are members of The Institute for Collaborative Working and we are working towards best practice ISO 44001.

Dedicated customer teams

Providing outstanding customer service is at the heart of our culture and our senior leadership team have been pioneering great service in the facilities industry for many years.

Our people focus on building a deep understanding of their client’s business, their needs, and the specific requirements in each of their facilities. 

We operate dedicated and scalable client management teams built to deliver a unique, customised service to meet each clients’ specific needs. Each client has a dedicated business manager and each of our teams is supported by our 24/7/365 helpdesk.

Leading edge energy solutions

As we move towards a net-zero future, we’ve put sustainability and supporting our customers on their journey at the core of what we do. 

Our services are built to deliver cost and efficiency savings through effective building energy and waste management , plant upgrades and the introduction of smart monitoring and renewable energy. 

Our renewable energy team supports clients to explore alternative energy solutions and ensure the right measurement to meet targets.

In house delivery

Our people are one of our key assets and our operating model focuses on using our in-house, multi-skilled engineers to deliver the majority of our operations, with sub-contractors introduced for specialist requirements. 

This not only eliminates extra costs but also avoids the significant additional time and costs required to schedule, manage and coordinate third-party suppliers. It also helps to reduce the operating risks inherent in having multiple parties on site.

High-quality workplace performance data

Our customers benefit from live and transparent 360-degree performance reporting and supporting analytics. Underpinned by our CAFM and business systems this enhances their ability to:

  • Identify and mitigate asset failure and business disruption risks
  • Optimise facilities costs without increasing asset risks
  • Plan appropriate maintenance strategies and asset lifecycle/replacement programmes.
  • Ensure facilities operations are efficient, effective and safe
  • Demonstrate documented compliance
Nationwide coverage

Our site-based engineers are supported nationwide by multi-skilled mobile engineers. We operate a 24/7/365 help desk which ensures a rapid emergency response. 

When required, we aim to have additional resources on-site which ensures a rapid emergency response. 

Installation, maintenance and repair

We deliver an electrical installation, maintenance and repair service to clients.  We agree on the most appropriate maintenance regime from simple break-fix to PPM or condition-based and predictive strategies and advise on opportunities to increase resilience and reduce costs.

We can manage projects from estimate and initial concepts to final testing and commissioning.
