Project summary

The Bar Library is a state-of-the-art premises in the heart of Belfast’s Legal Quarter, which provides an enquiry and information service, together with a world-class collection of books, journals and electronic resources. In this “open and dynamic environment”, we provide facilities management and energy related services that fully support the Bar Library’s core business activities and services.

As a sign of our positive contribution, we helped to reduce the Library’s total energy consumption by 19% between April 2016 and March 2017.

The detail

The Bar Library required a contractor with the expertise to deliver planned preventative maintenance (PPM), reactive maintenance, asset management, building records management and health, safety and environmental monitoring. As the needs of the Library can flex according to the time of year, we work in partnership to accommodate any change requests, including out of hours tasks such as scaffolding works to the main atrium.

Reactive maintenance works for all services, and 24-hour emergency call outs, are executed by our experienced, directly employed teams with the support of our approved supply chain. Energy management services are also a core feature of our partnership and we can point to the delivery of a 19% annual cost reduction in energy (£22,903 saving) as proof of our expertise.

"GRAHAM has been proactive in identifying capital expenditure requirements, which in turn has also resulted in efficiencies and cost savings. The staff and the management team are excellent and, in addition to their technical abilities, focus on customer service. Nothing is ever too much bother. I have no hesitation in recommending GRAHAM."
