There are over 300,000 retail outlets in the UK, each one requiring the highest standard of facilities management to ensure statutory and commercial compliance.
The total value of sales in the UK retail sector are approximately £400 billion per year. The sector generates 5 percent of the country’s total GDP and employs 2.9 million people.
Challenges we often see include multiple sites across wide areas, ageing building stock and very high compliance requirements.
We deliver a proactive service, ensuring that statutory and commercial compliance is achieved without fail across nearly 200 stores.
We support the national retailer with planned maintenance works or as reactive, emergency tasks that demands a fast turnaround.
Large retailers often run 24/7 operations, including night time restocking – we work around this lack of downtime to maintain key facilities.
Maintenance of entrance and exit areas is key to preventing shoplifting and other theft, while working ventilation and heating systems prevent produce spoiling.
