Grounds maintenance is an essential aspect of maintaining social housing and construction sites. It includes a range of activities such as grass cutting, hedge trimming, weed control and general upkeep of communal areas. Ensuring that these areas are well maintained is not only important for the safety and well being of residents and workers but also for maintaining the aesthetic appeal of the properties. Therefore, it is imperative for organisations to have a compliant route to market for this service.
CHIC’s Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is an effective way to procure grounds maintenance services, providing a flexible and streamlined approach that allows organisations to engage with pre vetted suppliers who are capable of delivering high quality services.
