When you own a building, there is always a lot of work to do. You need to manage your tenants and ensure that they are keeping to the terms of the lease agreement, deal with external agencies and be certain that you are maintaining the building correctly. Looking after a large building can be a lot of work, with structural issues such as brickwork, roofing and the exterior walls to look after. Then there is the interior decoration such as the lighting, the electrics and the paintwork, and then there may be functional items such as a lift to maintain. It is impossible for you personally to have all the skills needed for these tasks, and you probably don't want to maintain a lot of staff on your payroll to take on these jobs unless you manage a lot of buildings. In most cases, it makes sense to work with a building services team.
What is a building services team?
A building services team can be a positive asset to your business. They will work with you to ensure that all aspects of your building are maintained to the highest possible standard. Whether you need help with some remedial waterproofing, repairing cracks in the concrete or simply looking after repairs to a side door, a building services team makes it easy. A building services team will have access to all the trade professionals you need. It is their job to recruit and employ all the qualified staff you might need, so you don't need to worry about that. You can simply tell the building services company what needs to be done and they will have the perfect person available for the job.
One of the biggest problems working with contractors is that you can rarely find anyone who can undertake every task on a project, so you normally need to hire a builder, a carpenter, a plumber and similar tradesmen individually. When one finishes their job, you bring in the next worker and spend time explaining to them what needs to be done. And, more worrying, since most jobs cannot be timed exactly, you often waste days between stages waiting for the next tradesman to become available. When you work with a building services company, this is much less of a problem. All communication between tradesmen is handled centrally, and because all the tradesmen are employed by the same company, they will ensure that all work is completed without unnecessary delays.
