Client Requests & What We Did
We were recently contacted by a client in Milton Keynes, who was in desperate need of site maintenance outside of their fire door. As you can see from the photos below, the exterior of the property had clearly been disregarded, and the surrounding foliage had been allowed to overgrow. Not only did this look unappealing, but it also meant that the company was no longer compliant with Health and Safety regulations. The rules regarding fire exits state that as they act as a vital escape route, the door cannot be blocked from the inside or outside. All passageways leading to the exit must be kept clear at all times to keep building occupants safe in the event of an emergency.
After carrying out an initial site survey, it was imperative that we scheduled to work on their property as soon as possible. In this instance, our team utilised their expertise in commercial maintenance in Milton Keynes to complete the project at hand. The pathway to the fire escape door is now completely clear from any glass and leaves, meaning that the company is now compliant with regulations.
"A huge thank you to the great team at the Facilities Company for their hard work on our site. They did an excellent job clearing away the overgrown bushes, so will most definitely be back in contact in the future! "
