Burnham-On-Sea is as it's name suggests, a seaside town.  Much of the town's prosperity over the last hundred years has been as a toruist destination.

Burnham-On-Sea is also known for it's beach lighthouse, called the Low Lighthouse, built in 1832.  It was decommisioned in 1969, but was brought back into service in 1997.  It's also a Grade-II listed building. 

Burnham-On-Sea has had lifeboat since 1836.  The Burnham Area Rescue Boat charity was established in 1992 to provide rescue services in Bridgwater Bay.  The mudflats that form part of the beaches have caused many people to get into difficulty, including five year old little girl called Lelaina Hall, who lost her life on the flats in 2002.   The BARB service then carried out fundraising to purchase an inshore lifeboat in 2003, named Spirit Of Lelaina, which rescued 50 people in it's first year of service alone. 

As with many towns, Burnham-On-Sea is expanding, with lots of both residential and commercial development taking place.

Compliance Testing

As health and safety regulation gets more stringent, as a property manager your workload increases constantly. You obviously want to ensure the safety of the residents, but you also need to comply with the legislation.

Inevitably, you simply don't have the time to visit every single apartment block you manage to carry out the required compliance testing to fulfil the legal obligations. This is another area in which UCS can help you, as we can provide:

  • Fire Alarm Panel Testing
  • Fire Alarm Manual Call Point Testing
  • Smoke Detector / Alarm Testing

  • AOV (Automatic Opening Vent System) Testing

Our teams record the testing for you, reporting back to you if anything that would need an engineer visit.  Our compliance testing service is available as an add-on if you are an existing customer.  It is also available in the Somerset area if you would like it as a standalone option, without the cleaning, grounds maintenance or property maintenance.

Debra Abel

Just wanted to say how delighted I am with UCS. Everyone has commented how clean the offices are on a Monday morning after your staff have been, and the high level of service you provide has been consistent throughout the months you've been with us. I will have no hesitation in recommending your company to other businesses and colleagues.

Julia Tippetts

We have dealt with UCS since 2011. We have found them to be organised and helpful. No task is too big or too small and on occasions some of these tasks have not always been the most pleasant. UCS have provided not only the communal area cleaning and window cleaning for four large apartment blocks, but they have also been our eyes on the site, and have reported issues found within the building communal areas, and have on many occasions resolved lighting issues for the safety of the tenants. Each visit they test the fire alarms and report any problems. You really couldn't ask for anymore from them.

Sara Jenkins

On meeting with the residents today, they had nothing but praise, along with me also, regarding the standard of cleaning. The blocks look immaculate every time I go to site to inspect them
