Grounds Services Overview
Well-managed grounds and communal areas are central to enhancing the consumer and employee experience
OUTCO understands that organisations need to be able to get on with their core activities efficiently and without interruption whilst maintaining the highest standards of safety. With so many moving parts and outside influences, this can be a complex task. This is why OUTCO has established the first full end-to-end, smart tech-enabled, data rich outdoor services business.
Our tailor-made service is designed around our clients’ specific requirements so that they can focus on other aspects of their business. Our work in both the public and commercial sectors ranges from grass cutting to car park tarmac repair, litter sweeping and line painting, to landscape reconstruction projects and popular ecology projects such as green roofs and bee-friendly pollinator planting.
For facility and site managers, OUTCO Grounds Maintenance offers an all-in-one managed service from an award-winning national FM company, that offers peace of mind for a fixed cost throughout the entire year.
Outstanding service and peerless standards
OUTCO Grounds Maintenance ensures that outdoor estates are cared for to the highest possible standards by properly trained and insured operatives using state of the art technology to make sure that clients are always kept informed of progress. It’s a service that most in-house or local contractors simply cannot replicate.
As a previous IWFM Service Provider of the Year, OUTCO delivers 99.99% customer satisfaction, and offers facility and property managers’ the assurance that their duty of care is being met. OUTCO provides complete budget certainty, while our service levels and national coverage provide the assurance of continued round the clock service, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Year after year.
Reliability, technology, scalability
Working with OUTCO Grounds Maintenance ensures that outdoor estates are effectively project managed throughout the year with tasks such as grass cutting, hedge strimming and tarmac weeding carried out without fail to maintain an immaculate appearance and to ensure that grounds never become a neglected liability. We offer industry-leading service delivery guarantees at manageable fixed cost rates. Our site services programme is specifically designed for property and facility managers and managed by a dedicated account director.
OUTCO’s 99.99% client satisfaction levels are the highest in the business. Our operatives are trained and certified to your own health and safety standards, with industry-leading RIDDOR/LTI and near miss rates.
Industry leading technology
We deploy advanced technology to ensure exceptional service efficiency and complete job visibility. OUTCO software keeps clients fully up to date with site activity, on any device, anywhere. The innovative OUTCO system automates reporting from pre-job assessment to job completion, with audit level reporting provided as standard.
National scalability delivered locally
Our network of OUTCO contractors delivers quality services and supports local economies. As one of the nation’s top 20 Grounds Maintenance operations, our grounds teams straddle the country, and make us uniquely placed to serve clients with a challenging portfolio of single or multiple sites across the nation. Our operatives not only have local grounds experience and contacts, but also the benefit of in-depth specialist sector experience, to ensure that we can take care of any facility regardless of size, location or difficulty.
OUTCO already is a trusted partner of companies across the UK, from the largest oil terminals in the far north, to distribution and transport hubs such as Amazon and Midland Rail, through to national retail sites such as IKEA.
All of our Grounds Maintenance teams live locally, providing benefits for their local community. Local teams have a detailed knowledge of the area in which they work, and because they work in their own communities, they have a vested interest in delivering a high standard of service. Employing a local workforce also supports the local economy, while ensuring transport costs and downtime are kept to a minimum.
Our reputation for service rests on our extraordinary service levels. We work with some of the UK’s leading companies to keep their sites smart and maintained throughout the year.
