Planned and Reactive Maintenance

  • SEE prides itself on delivering the very highest levels of workmanship and quality through our Planned and Reactive Helpdesk.  During our 30 year history we have realised that the only way of delivering a consistently high service revolves around the quality of the engineers undertaking the tasks. 

    Mechanical and Electrical Maintenance

    Planned Maintenance, current building regulations driven by UK and EU legislation states that all mechanical and electrical services must be tested to ensure a building is compliant with UK law. These periodic tests must be carried out by qualified electrical or mechanical engineers in line with guidelines set out in the SFG 20 British Standard. 

    Reactive Maintenance is unplanned maintenance and is required to respond to mechanical and electrical system failures. The nature of the work ensures buildings are safe for their occupants while enabling the building’s operation to continue with minimal disruption.  Our engineers have an extensive range of critical spares on board their vans that ensures a focus on first time fix. 

    We have experience delivering maintenance to commercial, residential, student accommodation, retail and restaurants nationwide. We aim to provide complete maintenance solutions for every project, offering our clients one point of contact for all aspects of their PPM and Reactive needs.

  • All SEE engineers are qualified to a NVQ, NICEIC, Gas Safe or City and Guilds standard as a minimum requirement, in conjunction with our minimum qualification requirements all engineers are fully DBS checked for additional peace of mind.

    SEE engineers are able to provide 'real-time' updates and live arrival and departure times by utilising tablet technology which seamlessly integrates with our on-line IT CAFM system, this process ensures both the quality and efficiency of our reactive service whilst empowering the helpdesk to provide instant updates to the client.

    The SEE reactive service provides the following response times: 

    • 2 Hour Response
    • 4 Hour Response
    • Same Day Response
    • 24 Hour Response
    • Non Emergency 5 Day

    The response times are managed and achieved by the use of both our live IT CAFM software and our engineer tracking system which manage and intelligently dispatch the closest engineer with the correct skill set which will in turn give us a greater opportunity to achieve a first time fix.
