Building Maintenance

Building Maintenance is vital for food producers to keep the building envelope sealed from weather, insects, rodents and pathogens. It is important for the safety of our food – any crack or crevice in our factory can cause a build-up of soil or bacteria – and the safety of our people – removing any obstacles or hazards that could harm the humans in our factory.

This building maintenance service will help you if … 

  • your factory needs a sealed envelope to maintain a hygienic environment
  • cracks are letting weather, insects, rodents or pathogens into your factory
  • factory wear and tear is causing hazards to your people and food, or
  • you need to keep your factory compliant for a building warrant of fitness.

 

 

The solution to your problems

Our Building Maintenance technicians will perform all work under a documented hazard identification and control system for your compliance and peace of mind. Being solely committed to food producers makes us unique; just as our Industrial Cleaning division is, our Building Maintenance service is specifically set up to comply with the requirements of the Food and Beverage industry.

All our technicians are trained in food safety and health and safety.  This differentiates them from common builders who do not have industry knowledge or training.  Years of experience in the food industry help our technicians make the choices that best fit your site and needs.

We have outsourced and project managed building maintenance jobs, with licensed builders as subcontractors.   We can project manage renovations and subcontract all trades (electricians, painters, plumbers etc,).  All work is done by preferred and qualified tradespeople. 

 

What are your alternatives?

You could have your own in-house maintenance team. 

This is good if you have lots of small jobs happening throughout every day, including night or weekend shift work.  It would also be a good option if your repairs are of an urgent nature.

A con of an in-house team is that they will unlikely have full-time work, therefore time is wasted.  You will also have to manager annual leave, rosters, management and other HR duties.  

You could enter a facilities management contract.

This is good if you prefer to completely outsource – take a ‘hands off’ approach.  If you use our service, you will need to talk to us about the job, tell us when to get it done and pay job-by-job.  If you prefer a complete ‘hands off’ approach, our service may not be best for you.
