New maintenance service

Cumbernauld-based Indeglas has secured an on-going agreement to regularly inspect and maintain internal glazed screens within the University of Strathclyde’s Stenhouse, James Weir and Technology and Innovation Centre Buildings.

The agreement includes an initial survey followed by regular inspections to ensure compliance with all current building standards for the safety of occupants.

In appreciation of the whole life value of its estate and the continued well-being and safety of its occupants, this type of maintenance contract is in keeping with the university’s core values of supporting useful learning with operational excellence. The contract covers the survey, inspection and maintenance of all internal glass screens.

Jeanette MacIntyre, managing director of Indeglas, said: “Our agreement recognises the requirement for building owners and estates managers to maintain, with confidence, the highly engineered, interior spaces which are now a staple requirement for top performing organisations.

“We are extremely pleased to offer this new maintenance service to one of the country’s leading educational institutions and have invested heavily to support its execution. The design and installation of internal glass has become an increasingly specialist sector within the built environment as the range of glass types, properties offered, and appropriate application continues to develop.”

A dedicated back-up service for breakage or damage to ensure safe handling and compliant replacement is also available, and with this service level replacement parts will receive priority status.
