Commercial Maintenance Specialists

Building maintenance is an imperative part of facilities management, as a business we provide a number of solutions in this field.

Planned maintenance covers work that is usually required by legislation or is regulated to be completed at set intervals, ensure functionality of a system or ensuring that the tenants or users of the building are kept safe.

Through our reactive maintenance offerings, our professional teams can attend your site to address malfunctions or breakdowns of systems 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We’re on hand to quickly make your site or property safe, repairing the issue whilst on site if possible.

Fire Risk Assessments

Fire safety is of the utmost importance in any building.

From installing smoke alarms and fire extinguishers to developing evacuation plans, we'll help you create a safe environment for your employees and guests.

In order to ensure that your fire safety systems are functioning properly, they need regular maintenance. Our team can test and maintain your fire alarms, sprinkler systems, and other fire prevention equipment to ensure they are ready to protect your building in the event of a fire. Fire system maintenance is a regulated requirement, so businesses need to ensure their fire systems are maintained at the relevant intervals.

Planned Maintenance

Planned maintenance is proactive, scheduled maintenance that helps to prevent issues from occurring in the first place and usually falls within your ongoing compliance with government legislation. By regularly servicing and inspecting your systems and equipment, we can identify and fix any potential problems before they become bigger issues. This helps to minimise disruptions and downtime, as well as extend the lifespan of your assets.

Reactive Maintenance

Sometimes, issues arise unexpectedly and require immediate attention. That’s where our reactive maintenance services come in. Our team is available 24/7 to respond to any emergency maintenance needs you may have. We’ll work quickly to diagnose and resolve the issue, getting your systems back up and running as soon as possible.

Whether you’re in need of  repair or want to set up scheduled maintenance to minimise the risk of unexpected problems occurring, contact our maintenance experts today. Call us now if you have a reactive issue on 03300 249 121, option 5.

Frequently Asked Questions

Preventive maintenance is a proactive approach that involves performing regular maintenance tasks on equipment and facilities to prevent breakdowns and prolong their lifespan. Reactive maintenance, on the other hand, is a reactive approach that involves performing maintenance tasks in response to equipment failures or breakdowns. It includes tasks such as repairs, replacements, and emergency maintenance.

We would usually encourage businesses to take a preventative approach to your maintenance strategy to avoid costly downtime or accidental injury to staff or customers.

We aim to respond to emergency problems in the same day. Lower priority tasks are usually booked and successfully completed within 2-5 days.

We can provide planned and reactive maintenance services across the Northwest of England, including Liverpool, Merseyside, Greater Manchester & Cheshire. We can also offer guard in residence and other specialist security services across the UK.

Reactive maintenance means that you’re responding to a problem with your facilities or equipment, rather than proactively planning to protect your business from aspects like down time or an inability to provide your statutory requirements around site safety.

Clients can request our reactive maintenance services 24/7 through the direct phone numbers provided or our job booking system.

The frequency of building inspections varies depending on the type of building and its intended use. The responsibility for building inspections lies with the local authority, which is required to enforce the building regulations and ensure that buildings are safe and meet the required standards. For existing buildings, inspection depends on the building’s use and age, as well as any specific risks or hazards associated with the building. For example, high-risk buildings such as hospitals, schools, and high-rise buildings may be inspected more frequently.
