In addition to regular grounds maintenance projects, OUTCO covers all the requirements you may have for reactive works
Maintaining your building infrastructure in top condition can require the occasional intervention of a specialist service to deal with unusual maintenance and repair requirements.
Gates, Benches and Fencing
Keeping your facility safe and secure is always uppermost in our mind, and our facility compliance capabilities include a full range of gate, bench and fencing installation and repair services, including card entry systems for the modern office and installation of COVID inspection stations.
Exterior Repair & Maintenance
Our specialist teams cover everything you need to maintain your building, from drainage surveys to building repair, boarding up and security services.
The roofs of your buildings are an integral part of your infrastructure. Leaks can pop up if maintenance has not been performed over the life of the roof. OUTCO provides
comprehensive roof repair and investigation services. Preventative maintenance can go a long way towards preserving the life of your commercial roof. Waiting until a problem springs up before taking any action can be a false economy. Regular inspections and preventative maintenance can help prolong the life of your roof and prevent those critical repairs from becoming a regular occurrence.
Interior & Exterior Planting Schemes
OUTCO designs, sources, installs and maintains indoor and outdoor plants and other plant-related products for your office or facility. Our Grounds Maintenance division also provides a full landscape design and grounds maintenance service.
For modern facilities in high density urban office settings, our capabilities include well-being green space design, living roofs, pollinator meadow planting and Spring bulb provision.
Litter Picking and Sweeping
OUTCO offers litter picking and sweeping services tailored to the requirements of individual clients, from regular litterpicking of car parks, green spaces and
your grounds to one-off facility cleanup tasks.
Graffiti and vandalism of facilities is not only damaging to the physical fabric of an asset, but it can also damage the reputation of the facility owner and
gives the impression that the company doesn’t care. OUTCO capabilities includes all aspects of graffiti removal. We tailor our cleaning methods to your requirements, taking into account the type of material used for the graffiti (this could be paints, markers or adhesive labels/stickers) along with the type of surface it is on, aiming to restore the defaced surface back to its original condition.
OUTCO capabilities include the latest methods for bubble gum removal, providing both external and internal bubble gum removal solutions using either high pressure hot water for external cleaning or low pressure steam running off mains for internal bubble gum removal problems.
OUTCO capabilities include bench and external furniture cleaning services, covering metal, stone and wooden benches, bringing them back to pristine
condition and retouching/repairing as and where appropriate.
Our highly experienced and qualified tree surgery teams carry out a full range of tree compliance operations including felling, crown lifting, pollarding, canopy reductions, aerial dismantling, stump grinding and surveys for diseases such as Ash Dieback. OUTCO Tree consultancy services include tree maintenance and management plans, pest and disease inspections, tree planting, and diagnosis and treatment of tree problems.
OUTCO recommends that tree surveys are carried out on a three-year cycle to ensure all trees on site are in a healthy and safe condition, and to, for example, spot emerging signs of Ash Dieback. An OUTCO tree survey also ensures that none of your trees present a potential liability, and that branches are checked
to ensure clearance of 2.4m over paths, 5m over roads, 1m from all street lighting, traffic signs, traffic lights, street name plates and 2m from windows or
Road safety and low branch removal
OUTCO road safety and low branch removal ensures that you comply with the Highways Act 1980 Section 154 in removal of all low branches. Overgrown trees and low branches are constantly monitored, pruned and lopped to ensure that safe and clear pedestrian and vehicular routes are maintained as part of our tree work.
Diseases and invasive plants
OUTCO Grounds Maintenance ensures effective treatment of invasive plants and weeds to ensure any impact is minimised and that you are not liable for invasive plants spreading outside your boundary. Usually this will involve the control of Japanese Knotweed or Giant Hogweed, however we can advise on and treat a full range of invasive plant species from Himilayan Balsam to Ponticum. All action undertaken is conducted in accordance with industry best practice.
