Firstly, we have come to understand just what a tough task it is to do the job you do involving the multiple disciplines of having legal, contractual, health & safety, liability and operational responsibilities. Often, when you receive communication from a development or residents it is because there is a problem. We realise then, that contractors can be one of three things:
So what services do we provide that you can utilise in property and estates management?
UCS has been established since 2005 and throughout the team we have over 40 years of combined experience in the commercial cleaning industry. Our specialty is apartment blocks, working with a number of block management organisations, providing our unique multi-discipline package:
Keep reading though, as we provide more than just cleaning.
Inevitably in block management there will be small maintenance jobs that need to be carried out, such as:
Our teams are trained to help you with all of this, thus avoiding the very expensive call out costs of getting another contractor in.
At least 50% of the works we carry out are grounds maintenance and we have experienced well trained teams for this also. Grounds maintenance for communal grounds includes:
We can also carry out remedial works if a previous contractor has let you down in this area.
All part of making estate management that bit easier.
Secondly, while on site, we often take photographs showing ‘before and after’ results, or to highlight problems so that early intervention can be implemented. We have a proactive approach to this as we realise this can often pre-empt a complaint coming in to you. This hopefully reduces stress and workload for you. In fact, our motto is, “We are here to make you look good!”. We firmly believe that a good positive working relationship with you will yield the best result you could wish for.
Finally, and not to be underestimated in looking at your workload, is the fact that all the above disciplines are provided by one company – UCS! This has to have an impact on your admin, paperwork, and points of contact workload. You will be provided with one dedicated point of contact for all operational matters regarding your estates, and one for all financial matters – what’s not to like about that?! UCS aim to make block management easier.
We are active in a number of areas across Somerset and Devon, including:
