The Challenge

The dramatic growth in Compliance and Regulatory requirements across all building service disciplines has placed substantial legal responsibilities upon all Property Managers. Property Owners/Managers and Housing providers must ensure they are fully compliant with all current legal obligations that exist.

Increasing regulatory requirements now stipulate the need for Regular Electrical and Fire Testing and maintenance regimes, with legal accountability for the safety of people and property.

Compliance with the mandatory legislation involves regular Testing and Certification of numerous electrical, fire and building services. Insurance companies now impose requirements to ensure that compliance is achieved in order to remain insured.

The Impact

Rising awareness of the need to be regulatory compliant – awareness of the legal requirement or ‘best practice’ to adhere to guidelines is a significant driver for compliance related services, particularly with the introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter Act 2007 and a number of high profile prosecutions.

The increasing overhead in meeting these regulatory requirements, maintaining programmes, managing necessary certification and documents whilst achieving value for money is forcing companies to rethink their approach to managing these obligations.

The Solution

We offer specialist Electrical and Fire Testing Inspection and maintenance teams; fully industry accredited with first rate experience of all building types and installed services. Our Engineers have up-to-date knowledge of electrical and fire regulations for all types of organisations and businesses, giving you piece of mind.

A proactive approach to ensure that your areas of risk are identified and any potential problems are addressed. We have developed a bespoke service for the delivery of Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) for Clients in both private and public sectors. Our services ensure that routine compliance testing and maintenance are undertaken to a budget, thus making certain that the asset value of the building is maintained or enhanced.

We provide programme planning, execution of works and full budgetary controls, whilst retaining all necessary certification electronically. Full permission based web access is provided for all building service disciplines. We work with existing specialist service providers, i.e. lift companies which can access and upload all their specialist certificates to your web facility. We track and maintain all of the necessary legal paperwork and provide full forecasting and budgetary controls.

In addition to planning, scheduling and carrying out all mandatory test and certification, Lightside is able to provide a fully bespoke reporting service, providing you with the Management Information necessary to track budgets, performance and progress against targets.
