Regular maintenance requires a relatively small amount of time and very considerable savings will be gained in the long term as a result. R&M can ensure your maintainable assets are covered under our ‘planned preventative maintenance’ scheduled to avoid any more servicing worries and ensuring that any repairs are identified and promptly corrected.

Case studies

Find out about our latest projects.

Lighting refurbishment -  Coombe Abbey Country Park

The repairs and maintenance engineers have carried out extensive work in replacing the lighting at Coombe Abbey. The duration of the project has been five weeks.

This was carried out by the repairs and maintenance department from the council and was assisted by a contractor. The replacement was done to fit new LED lighting for more economical lighting. The new lighting had also been fitted with microwave sensors. The engineers and contactor worked their way through the building programming sensors and proving the operation of all sensors. The scope for the work included ground floor visitor centre, mezzanine floor and the first floor. The integral emergency lighting had been replaced but remained in the 29 existing positions. The external emergency lighting had been replaced above fire exits doors at six positions.
