Project

Grounds Maintenance Framework

The Brief

The Yorkshire Services require grass cutting and vegetation control carried out to 1,526+ sites throughout the whole of the Yorkshire County. The Yorkshire Water grounds maintenance framework contract has been held by Freedom since 1996 and prior to that held by Ives Contract services since 1986 whom were subsequently bought by Freedom. This contract has been retained for a period of 29 years and is thought to be the longest held utility contract within the UK.

The Approach

We currently undertake all grounds maintenance and vegetation control for Yorkshire Water Services on approximately 1,526 sites. The works are carried out on a planned, reactive and at times emergency basis. We attend clean water sites, waste water sites, pump stations, bore holes, impounding reservoirs, service reservoirs, water towers and all administration building grounds. Our work consists of landscaping, grass cutting, weed control, noxious weed eradication, hedge trimming, flailing, shrub maintenance, litter picking, landscaping, tree works and other associated activities. All green waste such as hedge clippings are removed from site and recycled. In addition to these services we are very much the eyes and ears of Yorkshire Water Services and often advise their Management team of issues we encounter on site. These include: Health & Safety Issues, Graffiti, Fly Tipping and Vandalism.
