How do Hislop’s Grounds Maintenance Contracts Work
Following the initial contact, we will visit your site to understand your requirements and carry out a full on-site survey, including photographs. We will then create a bespoke proposal and specification detailing the scope and frequency of work to be carried out during the year on a week by week basis. The proposal is supported with marked up maps of your grounds and photographs. We aim to ensure that you know exactly what will be carried out year round.
After the contract is awarded, we conduct a site specific risk assessment for on-site working and will take into account any specific procedures you may already have in place and require us to work to.
Once the contract is underway, the scope and frequency of work contained in the proposal is used to drive the daily work schedules, giving complete clarity and peace of mind. During each visit our field based staff will provide documented feedback to our office management team and flag any concerns to raise with you. All these processes are supported by our bespoke IT systems enabling us to track all work effectively and efficiently.
