Installation

Installation

Our end-result focus means we validate installation against design in real time. This ensures potential issues are spotted early, and timely solutions are proposed. We liaise with other service providers and suppliers directly, to simplify communications.

Assurance and Handover

We plan for a successful Handover from day one, operating a progressive Assurance regime throughout installation, to ensure a trouble free transition to daily operations. We work flexibly to meet the precise needs of individual people and projects.

Maintenance

We consider maintenance requirements from the earliest design stage and maintain our systems throughout installation. But we don’t stop there. We draft maintenance manuals, define schedules, and provide preventative and reactive contracts to ensure the finished product is fully supported.
