Case Studies



Project Services: schools

phs Compliance were commissioned by our Tier 1 facilities management client to replace ageing lighting and electrical accessories across primary and secondary schools in the North Midlands area. The existing bulbs were replaced with LED energy saving solutions and existing electrical accessories required full replacement throughout the buildings. Significant utilities cost savings and carbon emissions reduction are available with LED technology. Each school was surveyed by phs Compliance to corroborate the building orientation & daylight levels, condition of the existing assets, and identify correct replacement lighting products for different areas within each school. We ensured that lux levels were fully compliant with HSE’s HSG38 Lighting at Work and CIBSE guidance.  Our major challenge lay in completing the works during downtime in school summer holidays avoiding any disruption to school operational hours. Works could only be carried out using podiums or special access

Statutory Inspection and Test: NHS

PHS Compliance began working with our Tier 1 facilities management provider delivering electrical safety compliance services across two large hospital sites within the UK’s largest NHS Trust. With more than 1200 A&E patients treated daily and 1.4 million annual outpatients, these hospitals perform more heart surgery, MRI and CT scans than any other hospital in the UK. Inspection & testing in a highly operational hospital environment is one of the biggest challenges faced by our engineers, as well as the site’s estate team. One site alone consists of 15 buildings with 110 wards and 26 operating theatres. As circuits have to be isolated for testing purposes this is a significant responsibility in such a critical environment and extensive planning needs to take place to mitigate any risks that may occur. PHS Compliance annually inspects and tests twenty per cent of the hospital estate, working very closely with the on-site estates team to schedule in- and out-of-hours

Statutory Inspection and Test: national pub chain

phs Compliance were awarded a major contract in 2010 with the pub chain's facilities management provider to deliver all mechanical & electrical safety inspection, testing, remedial work and compliance reporting for over 1500 pubs across the UK. phs Compliance engineers deliver heating and gas boiler installation and maintenance, electrical installation (fixed-wire) and portable appliance testing, fire alarm & emergency lighting testing, and remedial works where needed. Our planners also ensure that many common obstacles to gaining access are mitigated, most notably pub opening hours, and ensure that an effective time margin exists for arranging inspection prior to the site becoming non-compliant. Major defects are rectified immediately on-site, and remedial repairs have a guaranteed eight-week turnaround.  All compliance reports are uploaded to the pub chain's statutory compliance database within ten days. phs Compliance has delivered nationwide

Statutory Inspection & Test: grocery retail

phs Compliance began working with our 'Big Four' food and grocery retail customer in 2009, delivering fixed wire and portable appliance inspection and testing services across one hundred per cent of the estate. We also supply all remedial works and carry out preventive planned inspection of LV panels. Since 2013 we deliver these services annually to approximately 20% of the estate. When LV panels in superstores require inspection, the entire electrical supply to store must be isolated. The implications of this isolation requirement are significant – not only must all electrical power & lighting, refrigeration, and mechanical services be shut down, retail trading hours cannot be disrupted in any way, nor can any loss be sustained to chilled and frozen stock held in store. The scale and geographical spread of the retail estate requires phs Compliance to work nationwide, across a variety of different retail unit operational requirements, and outside trading hours so as not to

M&E maintenance: retail

phs Compliance successfully tendered for a nationwide lighting maintenance contract for a major retail chain. The work involved carrying out planned maintenance visits to each store within the first twelve months, followed by re-lamping & replacing control gear in faulty lights. Each store would then have 100% of its lighting in working order including all lighting in-store, back of house, and sales floor. Daily challenges faced by the project team and our engineers included the restricted access hours & avoiding disruption to trading hours, working safely at various heights, risks to the general public, and ensuring that materials & waste mechanism are readily available. Daily communications with each store were needed to co-ordinate PPM visits and avoid disruption to normal opening hours. Our engineers worked 6.00pm to 6.00am to complete the required works. We created specific risk assessments and method statements in order to minimise risks to store employees

Project Services: police force

phs Compliance successfully won through competitive tendering a major electrical project at a large and fully operational police station. The work involved installing and commissioning a new addressable fire alarm system; a new low voltage distribution panel; replacement of all existing distribution boards; installation of new sub-main cables and containment; installing new power factor correction systems; replacing an obsolete uninterruptible power supply system; and project-managing all major building works required for the project. phs Compliance installation engineers needed to be specially security cleared, and the police station had to remain occupied and operational throughout the project. Therefore works needed to be phased to allow members of Force staff access to their offices and operation rooms. In addition there were other projects on site at the same time involving different contractors under separate contracts. We escalated security clearance within four weeks of
