Case Studies

fosse shopping park outco

The external car parks and walkways at Fosse Shopping Park have a high footfall from both customers and staff. Not only do many people pass through the public areas on a daily basis but there is also a high volume of traffic. The shopping park has a responsibility to its customers and staff to keep its grounds clear of snow and ice in order to minimise any slip-ups or accidents. During the winter months the car parks and walkways need to be cleared long before the shops open so that the employees can arrive safely

Heathrow Airport

It is essential that Heathrow remains compliant, safe and operational 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This becomes even more of a necessity during the winter months. OUTCO delivers 24/7 winter gritting and snow clearance service to Heathrow each winter season.

OUTCO provided a robust, consistent solution that ensured the sites remained safe and operational throughout winter. For the first time in many years, not one snow and ice related claim was received from the prisoners unaccompanied through the gates. This worked particularly well and provided us with greater flexibility with regard to service times.
