|Customer Generated Requests fall into the following categories:||Planned Preventive Maintenance|
We promptly acknowledge receipt of all requests. Each maintenance request will receive a unique reference number. This reference number will be quoted in all correspondence with you. Urgent requests for maintenance (e.g. heating problems, leaks, power outage, etc.) are attended to immediately. In the case of general maintenance requests, where the request has not been completed within 5 working days, contact is made with the customer/requestor, and explanation is given and an expected completion date provided. This contact is confirmed by email. We advise immediately by email when a request has been completed.
On average we complete 92% of maintenance requests in 3-days or less and 95% of maintenance requests in 5-days or less.
Where a request takes longer than 5-days to complete, this can ordinarily be attributed to one of the following:
- Materials are on order
- Awaiting attendance of an external contractor
- Access to carry out maintenance request to be scheduled for a later date, this should be with original requestors agreement.
Requests for maintenance should be logged through our HELPDESK
Urgent maintenance requests can be reported by dialling 2001 or 2006
Planned Preventative Maintenance is carried out in the background by our permanent in-house teams, supplemented by specialist contractors as required.
