FAQ

You can find out more about some of our most recent frameworks here.

What are the compliance requirements of public sector buildings?2021-02-18T16:41:25+00:00

All public sector buildings must comply with the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 both internally and externally. The Approved Code of Practice and guidance covers a wide range of internal and external compliance requirements that must be met in order to keep employees, contractors and the wider public safe. It is essential that compliance requirements are understood and met to ensure public sector property risk is appropriately assessed and managed.

The regulations include a conclusive list of requirements, some of which include:

  • Maintenance of the building, equipment, devices and systems
  • Suitable and sufficient lighting
  • Ventilation requirements
  • Room dimensions and space
  • Workstations and seating
  • Washing facilities

It’s also important that new public sector buildings and buildings undergoing major reshaping or refurbishing must comply with the most recent building regulations. Regulation requirements outlined include standards for construction, fire regulations and accessibility requirements.

What are the benefits of public sector property maintenance?2021-02-18T16:40:53+00:00

Many public sector services find it particularly beneficial to utilise a property service partner, such as Axis, to take care of their property maintenance needs.

Government and local authorities are required to ensure that their premises comply with building and health and safety regulations. Property maintenance plays a key role in ensuring that public sector buildings remain safe, functional and comfortable for both public sector employees as well as the general public.

Implementing regular and planned property maintenance is a cost-effective approach to managing a public building’s everyday wear and tear, whilst keeping on top of surveying requirements and regulatory requirements. A property that is well maintained oppertates far more sustainably and is considered more environmentally friendly.

The nature of the work involved in maintaining a property often requires the need to source skilled and qualified tradespeople for a variety of mechanical, electrical, gas, plumbing and decorating demands. A property maintenance service provider can manage the supply of contractors and partners, thus reducing the workload of public service workers.

What counts as a public sector property?2021-02-18T16:39:50+00:00

A public sector property is a central or local government owned building. These buildings are occupied by Local Authorities, Government and public service providers.

From health care and emergency services, through to social care, education and law enforcement, public service properties play a fundamental role in supporting the delivery of an array of public services.

Whilst some public sector properties are designed for frequent public use, such as hospitals and education facilities, others are not openly accessible to the public and are predominantly used by civil servants, public workers and government officials employed within a public sector role.
