  • Cyclical Maintenance - this is currently limited to external and internal redecoration work at present, with an annual contract value rising to approx. £200,000. 
  • Acting as CDM Co-ordinator
  • Providing support and advice for the procurement of a number of maintenance contracts
  • Providing support and acting as partnering advisor
  • Health & safety audits
  • Asbestos surveys

We have worked with CHS Group and assisted them through a change management process to implement maintenance contracts that are fully Egan compliant and introduced new ways of working to embrace partnering.

This involved:

  • Developing and implementing a procurement strategy for the maintenance services which moved towards contracting on a partnering basis
  • Developing the capabilities of its employees to act on behalf of CHS Group as a client.

The contracts that were let included:

  • Mechanical and electrical plant including boiler plant
