Multistorey Services

A facilities manager's duties in a multi-storey building is to address maintenance issues, keep on top of any problems that need to be rectified and ensure that the building is operating as smoothly as possible. 

With multi-storey buildings, there are a number of extra tasks that you as the facilities manager must also take on. Depending on whether there is a different floor for different areas of companies, your list of jobs can be quite varied and can include such things such as:
  • Access
  • Cleaning and maintenance
  • Essential service provision (e.g. fire safety systems)
  • Improving building performance
  • Ensuring and maintaining safety for occupants and assets
  • Risk management
  • Waste management

Multi-Storey Road Gritting

GRITIT uses specialist transport forecasting services and location specific models to automatically trigger service on our own control software. Close monitoring of road surface temperatures and gritting before the ice can form near your multi-storey building is a tried and tested solution for the highest levels of risk management. GRITIT has the largest dedicated private fleet of gritting vehicles in the UK, with trained and accredited local teams who know and understand your roads and the local road layout knowledge, climate and topography which makes your area unique. If you want complete assurance that the roads into your multistorey building are clear of snow and ice, GRITIT offers you a market leading 365/365 maintenance solution.


Multistorey De-Icing

Pro-active gritting means there will be far fewer times when a forecourt needs to be de-iced as the salt is spread before road temperatures reach zero degrees when water freezes. Additional call outs can quickly deal with any ice that has formed from escaped water or where later heavy precipitation has washed away the salt. multistorey access roads are prone to the elements, and Ice will normally start forming again even on the surfaces that have been gritted, at between -5 to -10 degrees centigrade. If it is an especially cold night and your multistorey area has already been gritted, then GRITIT will come back just before opening and ensure that we also de-ice after a hard frost in the morning. Choose gritting as a continuous service or choose on-demand gritting - your call. All part of the GRITIT service. Your access roads will have their visual look as a priority, and white gritting salt would be the recommended solution in this case. GRITIT also have special chemical de-icers available for things like stairs which require a low corrosive substitute.


Multistorey Snow Clearance

GRITIT's pedestrian and mechanical clearance services ensure that you have safe roads and car parks when you open for business and throughout the day. Or, 24/7 for critical roads in heavy use - just tell us what you require.


Multistorey Road and Car Park Tarmac Repair

Potholes are definitely on the up - the RAC recently reported a 31% increase in pothole-related faults attended by its patrols in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the same period last year. With a bad winter in 2017/2018, the tarmac on your car park or road may have a scruffy corner that needs tending now rather than later. Thing is, they're only going to get worse, so patching tarmac today rather than tomorrow avoids expensive tarmac patching later in the year and a much bigger bill. Be prepared for these by using a recognized national contractor such as GRITIT which has the correct equipment available for immediate use.
