Statutory Inspection and Test: hotel groups
We’ve delivered electrical installation inspection services, portable and fixed appliance testing, lightning protection systems inspection and alarm and hearing loop testing for compliance with the Disability and Discrimination Act for over 69 UK nationwide locations for a leading international hotel group.
