Marco expands services


Having already secured a long-term contract with Gatwick Airport Limited (GAL) to provide a framework of design, construction and operational services, Marco have recently expanded its offering to now include drainage, jetting, plumbing and CCTV surveys.

The new solution means specialist engineers will be on call out 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to assist with toilet and drain blockages and jetting in the terminal and supporting buildings. In addition, Marco has implemented a Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) programme, which will allow Gatwick to reduce their reactive maintenance and increase the performance and efficiency of their equipment to reduce breakdown.

In early September, the West Sussex-based airport building refurbishment and maintenance specialist will also be able to offer water chlorination, which is the process of disinfecting and commissioning a building's internal hot and cold domestic system, including all pipe work and storage tanks.

Managing Director David Gill said: “Expanding our service portfolio and securing these works gives us another opportunity to further grow the business, not just with Gatwick Airport but all other airport -based companies, retail outlets and concessionaires, too.

“We take great pride in providing a professional and reliable service, which is why all of our engineers are highly competent, trained and knowledgeable. They also make health and safety their number one priority when carrying out works, something that is so crucial when working on high security sites such as airports.”
