Case Study – Tesco Stores (UK)
As one of the biggest property owners in the UK, Tesco has a huge nationwide estate of buildings of all shapes and sizes, in a range of locations and environments.
One of the things that these stores all share in common though, is the need to keep their gutters and downpipes clear of blockages and dirt. Not only do these blocked areas look unsightly, but they also pose a number of issues for building owners – not least the health benefits of the people inside, the integrity of the building itself and even compliance with insurance.
With our lightweight interlocking 50mm poles and durable range of tools and heads, we were the perfect solution to a perenial problem for facilities managers.
After trialling SpaceVac in a limited number of stores – and carrying out their own internal comparison against a number of competitors – Tesco moved forward and placed a large order of SpaceVac’s external cleaning system to deploy to their in-house facilities management teams across the UK.
These were rolled out to the estate throughout 2017; all supported by a full nationwide training program delivered by SpaceVacs in house team of dedicated cleaning professionals who attended site to deliver regionalised training days to all FM and cleaning staff to ensure all of the teams across the UK were working Higher, Safer and Faster in no time.
