Success in Securing Long-term Contract with Newcastle University

Friday, 23rd August 2019

JH Mechanical Services are delighted to share the amazing news that they have been awarded the Gas Appliance Maintenance Service contract for Newcastle University.

Over the next couple of years they look forward to building a great partnership with the University.

The team will be looking after the gas appliances in over 260 University buildings to ensure they are all gas safety compliant, as well undertaking planned preventative maintenance to expand the life span of the plant equipment which will help minimise breakdowns.
Newcastle University, a member of the prestigious Russell Group which represents world-class, research-intensive universities across the UK, is recognised for its academic excellence and superb campus estate.

Indeed, it is great opportunity for JH Mechanical Services to work with such a prestigious client. Liam McDermott, Senior Mechanical Contracts Manager, will act as Account Manager for this contract and will be the main liaison contact with the Estates team at the university.

Having only just joined the team four months ago, Liam brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, as well as strong industry links and excellent client relationships he has cultivated over the past 30 years in the building services industry.

Liam says: "Securing a contract of this size with such a prestigious client as Newcastle University is testament to the ambitions of the management team and all of the staff at JH Mechanical Services; it is an exciting time to be a part of this outstanding venture.

"With a focus on outstanding delivery and customer satisfaction, we are building a strong portfolio of great clients. Securing this contract will allow us to grow the team of excellent engineers which will further enhance our provision to all our clients who rely on our exceptional service and swift reaction times to keep their buildings running efficiently and compliantly."

This contract will also have an impact on the existing apprenticeship programme as it will provide different learning experiences with a variety of specialist plant equipment. John Heward, Managing Director, adds: "This is a fantastic opportunity to build on our reputation with yet another flagship client and to further capitalise on the great name we have built in the industry to date.

"Securing this contract has only been made possible through the hard work and dedication of the management team at JH Mechanical Services, and I am delighted with what we have achieved!

"We already have a great relationship with our other clients, and I am looking forward to working with Newcastle University over the next couple of years. I can certainly see this opening more doors and greater opportunities which will lead to even more success for the business."
