Responsibility for maintaining the office locations of one of the UK’s biggest insurance businesses has been handed to leading building engineering, fit-out and maintenance specialist, JCA, following a competitive tender.

Starting this month, the contract covers more than 150,000 ft² at the company’s headquarters in the City of London, as well as satellite locations elsewhere in the capital and the South East.

A resident-based team of JCA maintenance personnel will provide round-the-clock support with responsibility for mechanical and electrical upkeep, fabric maintenance, reactive repairs and any other minor works.

Overseeing the new contract is Ian Coleman, Operations Director for JCA’s Managed Services Division, which has seen significant expansion of its onsite maintenance portfolio during 2017. He commented:

“JCA is proud to have such a major player in the global insurance market as a new client. With a reputation for engineering, fit-out and maintenance excellence, we anticipate further growth in resident-based service contracts during 2018. A number of large scale engineering projects, involving the installation and maintenance of critical infrastructure has also facilitated a recruitment drive for maintenance engineers.”
