Planned & Reactive Estates Maintenance

Our approach to planned preventative maintenance (PPM) and reactive maintenance is to deliver a service that will put in place a structure that is responsive to the requirements of the contract and building users.

PPM programmes are designed to minimise the need for emergency maintenance and breakdowns, to extend asset life and ensure;

  • Statutory Health & Safety requirements are met The continued availability of the facilities
  • The building elements do not begin to deteriorate over time
  • The assets are providing full operational functionality at all required times

We support our existing contracts with a combination of multi skilled mobile site supervisors and site based supervisory staff utilising specialist sub-contractors as required with Eric Wright FM remaining contractually responsible at all times.

All services are checked for quality, quantity and adherence to specification and undergo rigorous monitoring and auditing in line with our ISO 9001:2208, 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001 accreditations.

Our mobile teams are supported by our Helpdesk based at our head office in Preston that operates 24/7 incorporating a computer aided facilities management system (CAFM). PPM and reactive requests are passed to each responsible person utilising hand held PDA’s to report, monitor and close down activities to ensure compliance with KPI requirements.

Catering Clients



Eric Wright FM provides a Helpdesk to support the contract management team that is resourced 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We utilise a Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) System which acts as the central Helpdesk for all operational contracts. This Helpdesk will be the first point of contact when reporting all issues and will ensure that jobs are allocated accordingly with an escalation procedure also available when required.

Planned and reactive maintenance requests are sent via a hand held PDA directly to the site based and mobile FM teams.

The CAFM system will hold data relating to all requests raised together with the response audit trail and details of all planned preventative maintenance tasks. This information will be used to generate the reports to the client representative.

Helpdesk operators have full details of all building assets and area data sheets so that they are able to identify what items are contained within any given area. They have contact numbers for all service personnel and specialist sub-contractors and can call out support and service engineers as required.
