Use Case

Winter maintenance for schools, hospitals and police stations

It’s imperative that public sector premises including schools, hospitals, doctors surgeries and police stations are safe and accessible, even in the worst winter weather.

We understand that winter is the toughest time of year for those responsible for facilities management, with unpredictable weather, freezing temperatures and sometimes snow on the ground. 

Our gritting and snow clearing service supports:

  • Private Facilities Managers who are responsible for the winter maintenance of public sector premises. 
  • NHS & Police Estate, Facilities and Operations Managers
  • Companies providing facility management services for all kinds of educational establishments – schools, nurseries, colleges and universities. 

What are the challenges for gritting public premises in winter?

 A maze of walkways, exits and fire escapes to grit

Public sector premises share something in common that makes them hard to safely maintain in winter. There are often multiple entrances, walkways, fire escapes and outdoor seating areas that all need to be gritting or cleared when ice and snow arrive. Anywhere members of the public, staff or contractors go needs to be safe and accessible.

The young, old, infirm and frail need to stay safe – as do the staff looking after them

Service users for public sector sites such as schools, hospitals, colleges and police stations include the very young, the elderly and everyone in between. It doesn’t matter if a police van or ambulance arrives at midday or midnight, staff still need to be able to move people safely no matter what the weather is doing.
