DCUK FM were awarded the cleaning of the grease extract systems within the bakery, hot chicken counter & deli. The contract objective is planned preventative maintenance to reduce the risk of fire in grease removal from the ventilation systems. As with most outlets which have a food preparation and cooking facility, insurance companies are now putting restrictions on policies to ensure extract systems are maintained to reduce fire risk, which is driving contracts like this.
This contract started in April 2012 and we will carry out cataloguing of the extract systems, line drawings and recommendation reports within our first year. This will be provided with the goal of substantially reducing the costs of planned and reactive maintenance across our 426 stores in the 2nd year of the contract whilst still ensuring compliance to TR/19 and other associated industry standards.
Summary of works:
The entire portfolio has been shared between 3 contractors; DCUK FM fulfilling the cleaning of London, South East, North East and North West totally 426 supermarkets & local convenience stores.
We currently carry out the cleaning of grease extraction systems including the bakeries, food to go (rotisserie), staff canteen and customer canteen.
