Site Clearance by Integrity FM

What is a site clearance?

A site clearance is the process of removing waste/relocating equipment from a premises. Typically a site clearance is conducted to remove excessive waste and debris from an area to enable construction works or to facilitate the arrival of a new tenant. However, site clearances can also include the relocation of equipment, such as furniture and IT appliances to a new site.

What can a site clearance do for you?

As site clearances are often utilised to ensure free access to a property, relying on a good contractor to clear your site will ensure you meet your requirements if you are vacating a property. Site clearances can also make your ground more attractive to potential clients and buyers if you are selling the land.

If you are using a contractor to clear your site rather an organising things yourself, you can save yourself time and money which could be better spent on other parts of your business. Integrity will engage with any necessary third parties, such as skip hire and waste management companies, on your behalf to remove any waste from site promptly and with the utmost care given to your premises.

What types of site clearance can Integrity conduct?

Our experienced engineers have taken part in a number of site clearances, providing them with the experience necessary to carry out your site clearance safely and efficiently. Some of the types of site clearances we can carry out include…

  • Removal of vegetation
  • Remove and relocate office equipment
  • Removal of waste and debris from site
  • Decommission electrics
  • Removal of containers
  • Disposal of waste

At Integrity, we know that each site is different and needs to be taken on a case-by-case basis. For this reason, we always endeavour to have a detailed walk around site so we can fully understand your site and tailor our work to meet your requirements.

Drainage Surveys by Integrity FM

What is a drainage survey?

A drainage survey allows our engineers to explore drainage systems in depth, where it would otherwise be difficult to identify faults in pipework without carrying out more intrusive works. These surveys are carried out through the use of a specialist camera which is manoeuvred through the drainage system. This camera allows our engineers to see a live video camera feed of the system as it travels through the drain.

This allows for issues to be identified in greater detail so that the appropriate course of action can be taken to rectify them.

When might I need a drainage survey?

A camera drain survey can be used to identify blockages, leaks, cracks and other related pipework and drainage issues within a building. Blockages within a drainage system will often produce foul smells and leaks. This can make it very difficult for businesses to operate, for example, blockages on shop floors of supermarkets producing foul smells can be a deterrent for shoppers.

A benefit of a camera survey is that it can allow an engineer to ascertain and understand issues further down a run of pipework that cannot be seen from ground level. This allows us to gain a greater understanding of the configuration of the pipework which can allow us to put a plan in place to take the necessary actions to rectify and prevent issues occurring in the future.

What are the benefits of drainage surveys?

One of the many benefits of having drainage camera surveys carried out is that it enables you to gain a greater understanding and idea of the pipework configuration in the property in situations where the original drainage drawings are not available.

Camera surveys are also extremely efficient, with the live video feed function, it allows the engineer to identify issues in the pipework in real-time meaning that solutions and feedback can be provided in a swift manner to the necessary parties.

Drainage surveys are also unintrusive due to the use of the camera, this alleviates the need for extensive excavation works to be carried out in order to access sections of pipework and investigate. This means that your business suffers the minimal amount of disruption possible due to the need for any intrusive works being negated in the investigation stage.

Is your business in need of a drainage survey? Integrity can conduct your survey swiftly, provide feedback, and carry out any necessary repairs to your drainage system.

Harness Training

At Integrity, safety is always at the forefront of what we do, both for the public and our employees. We provide our engineers with the best training possible to ensure they can work safely and efficiently.

Most recently, our team received harness training from an industry leading training provider.

Following the training, one of our engineers said “it feels good to be part of a business that want to do things right. By receiving this and other training courses, I feel confident that myself and the rest of the team will be able to perform our roles safely”.

Where will Integrity engineers use this training?

Harness training is integral to maintaining safety while working at heights. Jobs such as gutter repairs, roof repairs and recovering at high levels will require this equipment and training to be utilised. Harness training and equipment will also be employed when using a MEWP (Mobile Elevating Work Platform), such as a scissor lift or cheery picker, if the circumstances require their use.

Is your property in need of high-level work?

Integrity Facilities Management has extensive experience in surveying and completing roofing works and other high-level services and would be more than happy to provide your property with a FREE survey.

Why Flicker Testing is so Important

All commercial property owners have a series of obligations to meet. One of which is ensuring the property’s emergency lighting functions correctly. One way of doing this is carrying out ‘flicker testing’. But what exactly is a flicker test? Let’s shed some light on that for you.…if you will pardon the pun!

What is a flicker test?

Flicker testing involves turning off all the lights in the property via a test key switch and walking around the property while recording any faults identified during the test. Testing times can vary depending on the size of the property and should be conducted monthly and a three hour ‘drain down’ of the lights should be carried out annually.

Work to resolve faults that affect the efficiency of the Emergency lighting should be carried out as a matter of urgency. This is to ensure the safety of those present within the property in the event of a power failure and the building being plunged into darkness.

Why is a flicker test so important?

Businesses and other public spaces are required by law to ensure emergency lighting is present and functioning within a building. This is so the building can be evacuated safely and efficiently should there be a severe power cut or fire. Ultimately, having regular tests conducted by a trained electrical engineer provides a business with peace of mind, knowing that if something unexpected occurred, the emergency lighting will function as intended and enable personnel to evacuate safely.

Does your property require a flicker test?

Integrity can provide your property with regular flicker testing to keep your property compliant and safe for all. Please click on the link here where you can find out more about our electrical services.
