Short breaks mean extra work for plumbing and gas company

A plumbing and gas company based in Milton Keynes has secured a contract with UK short breaks specialist Center Parcs to service 700 holiday lodges at its Woburn Forest site. Plumbing & Gas Solutions Limited have worked with Center Parcs for over 3 years now and have been awarded the contract when the park opened and they have retained their services ever since.

Plumbing & Gas Solutions Limited has already started the contract, which sees the company carry out the servicing works to the plumbing and heating systems in the lodges to ensure they are performing correctly, efficiently and safely. This involves the testing of temperature sensitive safety devices, filtration cleaning, testing of flow rates and heat transfer recording. The team will also be on hand to help Center Parcs with the maintenance and repair of its energy centre.

The contract was awarded to Plumbing & Gas Solutions Limited after Center Parcs started looking for a company relatively local to the site in Bedfordshire who could cope with the demand and offer a professional and personal service. Plumbing & Gas Solutions Limited is able to cope with this demand thanks to its ‘solid team’ at the office and engineers who are all directly employed by the company. By having a team of its own engineers as opposed to sub-contractors, Plumbing & Gas Solutions Limited has full control of diaries and the ability to plan and prepare the works. All engineers go out to jobs in full uniform too, are DBS checked to enhanced levels, and trained and qualified to a high standard.

Carl Yeomanson, Managing Director at Plumbing & Gas Solutions Limited, said: “We are really proud to be working with Center Parcs on this. Center Parcs are very conscientious about benefitting their local community and carried out a number of exercises specifically looking for local businesses that could help carry out the tasks required.

“We now have a great working relationship with Center Parcs. We appreciate them as a client and understand their needs. As a business they run at high capacity at all times, so reliability is paramount. At times, we are working in occupied lodges which can be challenging as the guests are on holiday and we don’t want to disturb them. We have to be as invisible as possible to ensure zero impact on their break. This requires caring attitudes and impeccable manners.

“As a company we are always growing organically and adding to the team when the opportunity presents itself. Having a client like Center Parcs adds to our stability as a business, allows us to grow and it benefits the client and community directly.

The work we carry out reduces the risk of plumbing and heating breakdowns that could result in financial loss and a negative guest experience. It also improves the safety and comfort within the lodges.”
