Ground Control provides first-class winter maintenance
Ground Control provides a national winter maintenance service for private and public services. We offer a planned preventative or reactive service tailored to your requirements complete with 24/7 emergency cover. Our live reporting means that you know exactly when the gritting and clearance have been completed, while our winter maintenance options ensure that you always have the coverage you need whether you want one-off gritting done or ongoing service throughout the winter months.
We help our clients provide safe sites for pedestrian and vehicle movement in times of inclement weather. In winter 2014 / 2015, Ground Control successfully completed over 105,000 gritting call outs throughout the UK. As weather patterns change and snow is more common in the UK, it’s important to ensure that you can provide safe passage in and around your business for clients and personnel.
To achieve this seamless delivery, our clients benefit from our subscription to a specialist weather forecaster with post code accuracy across the UK. We use this to forward plan, target delivery, and help to control limited budgets.
As professional landscapers, we are mindful of the living landscape. We minimise plant mortality and infrastructure damage by accurately placing salt on site with specialist equipment. As planted areas are rarely used for pedestrian or vehicular access, we can usually provide winter maintenance services with no adverse effects on plant life or gardens. Our locally based teams work through the night supported by our Regional Contract Managers and professional office staff on night/day rotation.
Ground Control has major contracts with blue chip retailers, property agents, local authorities and social housing landlords. We are fully insured and able to provide a quality service you can rely upon.
Our winter maintenance and gritting services are managed from your local office to provide reactive and pro-active services near your location. We have a vast network of regional offices throughout England and Wales in Essex, Moray, Ruthin, Shifnal, Warrington, East Sussex, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, and Devon.
We offer a wide range of options for businesses to tailor our winter maintenance services to their needs. This includes offering reactive maintenance or putting agreements in place in advance to ensure that you are ready for the winter months. We also offer pay as you go contracts so that you only spend if and when you need it. Get in touch to discuss your options and make sure that your business is prepared.
