How do School Maintenance Packages Work?

Below is an example of some of the work we can carry out as part of our school maintenance service during scheduled visits:
- Plumbing (replace broken toilets, repair leaking taps)
- Carpentry (fitting fire doors, building furniture)
- Suspended ceiling
- Fixtures and fittings (fitting rails, computer trunking, installing equipment)

To make sure we don’t disrupt the daily routine in your school we endeavour to carry out any work out of school hours and during school holidays.
Health and Safety is Always a Prime Consideration
We understand that property maintenance plays an important part in complying with health and safety law to provide a safe working environment for both staff and pupils. To adhere to strict Health and Safety law, as part of our scheduled maintenance packages we provide:
- Site survey
- Risk assessment
- Method statements
- Health and Safety elements
- An annual plan with programme of works
- Scheduled costs
- Record of works
Schools have a legal duty of care to ensure the Health and Safety of staff, pupils and site visitors, but as we know a school building can undergo enormous strain, therefore it is essential that the building is regularly maintained to a high standard.
Many schools throughout the UK were built during the 1960’s and 70’s, with little maintenance work having been carried out. Now these schools and those that walk their halls are experiencing the perils of poor maintenance.
New schools too withstand the same wear and tear associated with a high footfall, so, regardless of age, school property maintenance is an essential part of proving a safe and comfortable space.
Through a planned schedule of maintenance, we can reduce the risk of deteriation and prevent significant expenditure and disruption to the school’s daily routine. JBH Refurbishments can manage every aspect of your school maintenance and plan any major works during quiet periods in the academic year.
