The solution

Our multi-skilled operatives ensure that all plant, equipment, external areas and facilities are in the most efficient working order and free from any defect that may cause any hazard to the A&O environment or to its pool of over 400 staff. All planned preventative, reactive and emergency services are completed in full compliance with the manufacturers’ recommendations, including statutory maintenance to mechanical and electrical plant equipment.

We are also responsible for managing specialist sub-contractors and stocks of critical spares. In addition, we assume responsibility for the management of compliance issues including water testing (L8) and five yearly electrical testing and certification, ductwork system inspection, testing, inspecting and cleaning.


"I appreciate the daily effort that is made to ensure a seamless, and non-intrusive manner that the works get completed. Last minute or urgent requests are always dealt promptly and it’s great they understand our business and the requests and urgency that come with it. I look forward to many years of good working relations with this team,"
