Consistently successful installations led to Oakwood being asked to provide Planned Preventative Maintenance contracts. This became such a significant part of our business we decided to form a separate division of Oakwood and dedicate it solely to service and maintenance activities. Initially the Maintenance Division looked after air conditioning only, but this has grown over the years and we now offer full mechanical planned preventative maintenance contracts. 

Over the past few years we have developed a particular expertise in carrying out detailed condition surveys on existing M&E systems. Our services are now regularly used by some of the UK’s best-known property companies, surveyors and consultants wanting to have full knowledge of the condition of older systems to assist with dilapidation claims. Initial visual surveys are followed up by in-depth intrusive investigations of equipment, pipework and duct systems including LPHW and chilled water analysis, corrosion reports and microbiological sampling and analysis. 

Our team of nationwide engineers are all qualified in their own field to industry standards such as safe refrigerant handling and Gas Safe. Oakwood provide ongoing training for all engineers in order to meet advances in industry legislation, new technologies and industry design.

Emergency call out is an important part of our maintenance division. Occasionally even relatively new equipment can develop faults and some applications, such as comms rooms or hotels, require immediate attention. In such circumstances the availability of a service engineer during evenings or over weekends is a necessity so Oakwood made the decision to provide a 24 hour, 7 day a week call out service
