The Student Housing Company manages purpose-built student accommodation in the UK and Europe.
The management team at the company felt that a technology-based approach to work at height testing and compliance, with a specialist partner, would free up time to focus on the next stage of the company’s growth.
Like many businesses that operate a large and geographically spread property portfolio, The Student Housing Company (TSHC) was looking to outsource a planned testing and inspection regime to a single specialist company.
This would allow them to focus on their core business activity of providing high quality student accommodation, whilst allowing a specialist work at height company to take care of all its testing and compliance requirements.
Until now TSHC had found it difficult to identify a compliance partner that had the resources to provide a single, nationwide, joined-up service.
TSHC was looking for a technology-based solution to managing and monitoring compliance and testing requirements.
After careful evaluation and a detailed tendering process, TSHC appointed Heightsafe Systems to carry out:
- compliance asset testing
- installation services
- specialist training courses to TSHC on site staﬀ, so they are fully work at height proﬁcient to use the equipment installed.
Heightsafe System’s partnership with the award-winning TSHC has brought about the start of a longstanding and trusting business relationship.
Through our technology-based in-house client portal, we have carried out a complete asset survey of all the company’s current developments. This provided both Heightsafe and TSHC with an accurate assessment of assets, which, until now, had simply not been possible.
Having this technology based solution provides building owners with a number of beneﬁts:
- Alerts each time re-testing is required
- Better quality management information
- Review, track and predict asset / equipment life
- Live updates on asset health
- Better tracking of jobs
With a constantly developing property portfolio, Heightsafe Systems ensures ongoing compliancy for The Student Housing Company.
