We help public services meet the challenge of reducing costs whilst maintaining services.
We have many public sector customers including local and central government, hospitals, schools and universities, libraries and museums.
We provide support services to public departments who are looking to rationalise their property portfolio, looking to make better use of their current space or are going through periods of change. We have a very strong track record of being short listed at the evaluation stage, we achieve this by being technically competent, financially sound and legally compliant. Our network of offices means that we are in close proximity to our customers. Our experience of working with the public sector means that our closeness brings a number of benefits such as:
- allows customers to change their requirements at short notice
- we have knowledge of local issues and local communities
- we have an improved environmental impact due to shorter travel distance
- we deliver cost economies by being a local provider
Our public sector experience means that you will get a "best practice" approach and we will share insights with you to make sure that you receive excellent value for money from our service. Our value for money principles are based on our three intended outcomes. These are:
- being efficient
- being effective
- being economic
We are always innovative and up to date with the latest developments in our industry, so we offer the public sector new ideas and approaches.
Not only do we have a growing reputation for handling complex hospital moves, but we are also experienced in high security relocations for government departments such as the Ministry of Defence (MOD), which requires a high level of security cleared staff for special operations.
Recently we have undertaken moves under the Building Schools for the Future programme (BSF) and we are actively involved in the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP).
As a specialist in library and museum removals, we have dedicated teams trained in the art of sequential packing of library collections and the careful packing and handling of artefacts and historical items. We ensure that, on every project, we bring the best practices our industry can offer. We also provide a controlled storage environment when onsite space is at a premium or during refurbishment projects. This facility is an ex US air force base and is protected by a perimeter fence with double razor wire built to NATO military standards. Access to the site is by a manned security gate and the storage environment follows BS5454 guidelines. This provides ideal storage conditions for library material and museum pieces.
