MIES Maintenance offer bespoke Mechanical, Electrical, Fire and Security maintenance packages tailored to our clients requirements.
Integrated solutions are key to our approach. That could be working in partnership with MIES Fire & Security to deliver a complete maintenance package or having a dedicated account manager, meaning one point of contact to ensure any queries are dealt with quickly and efficiently with the minimum input required from clients & site managers.
We have heavily invested in developing a bespoke software package to provide a paperless and fully automated system that allows us to keep detailed information of each site and the maintenance requirements that is instantly available to all staff members and contract engineers.
As part of our service we issue all site managers an annual programme of works which details all the maintenance works that are to be carried out and in what month they are required to ensure we maintain compliance. To go one step further we will provide a weekly programme to indicate the exact dates we intend to carry out works and implications this may have on the day to day running of a site. This will enable site managers to co-ordinate with staff to ensure minimum disturbance during the working day.
MIES Maintenance will also carry out all required remedial works with the same team of engineers that provide the essential maintenance. This will provide a much quicker turnaround of works and will not involve multiple departments or staff members and will drastically reduce the operating overheads of site managers dealing with any building services works. All our Maintenance Engineers are fully qualified Electricians or Plumbing & Heating Engineers and will have a good background knowledge of the site and the operating procedures in place.
Do I Need Maintenance?
Did you know that following works are classed as a legal requirement?
- Electrical Fixed Wire Testing
- Visual Inspections & RCD Testing
- Emergency Light Testing
- PAT Testing
- Gas Appliance Maintenance
Further to the legal requirement it is also highly recommended that further maintenance works are carried out, this would generally consist of:
- Heating System Maintenance
- Ventilation System Maintenance
- Air Conditioning System Servicing
- Legionella Risk Assessment
- TMV Safety Check
Some of these may form part of the requirements set out by local councils, property management agents and insurance companies. MIES Maintenance can assist with ensuring your buildings are 100% compliant at all times.
Essential Building Services Maintenance is recommended not only to fulfil legal requirements but to ensure all M&E systems are kept to a safe standard. Should an incident occur and maintenance has not been kept up to date this may mean that insurance cover becomes invalid.
