Crystal Peaks is a well known large out of town shopping centre with 35 acres (550,000 sq.ft total lettable area) of Retail & Leisure, an average footfall of over 250,000 per week and 2,000 FREE car parking spaces offering a distinctly different experience to its mammoth neighbor at Meadowhall. The site is owned by Hermes property and managed by Workman.
How did we help?
Incentive FM were awarded the £ 1.5m per annum contract on March 1st 2008. Incentive employed a new site facilities manager and a further sixty staff were transferred to us from a number of individual historic service providers and our client. The net result was a single branded team forming one cohesive unit delivering security, cleaning, maintenance, grounds maintenance, customer service and administration functions amongst others.
What were Workman looking for?
Crystal Peaks has developed over recent years into one of Yorkshire’s largest regional shopping centres. There are 85 tenants at the centre, including Sainsbury’s, TK Maxx, Wilkinson’s and NEXT. The Centre’s historic services were coordinated by a variety of remote suppliers, leading to communication issues with site teams and ultimately a lower than acceptable standards of service and higher than average costs. Our clients were looking for a step change in service delivery, staff morale and statutory compliance.
From commencement of the contract, there have been consistent improvements in H&S compliance, cleaning standards, cost control, grounds maintenance and above all staff morale. Incentive’s innovative, integrated and highly transparent management and service delivery model consistently deliver results, both in cost savings and operations. The results and services provided at Crystal Peaks have enhanced the important relationship Incentive FM have with Workman. Our retail team throughout the UK continue to refine and develop site tailored systems and processes which offer continuous improvement and an outstanding customer experience.
“We were looking for a truly integrated solution at Crystal Peaks and we felt that Incentive FM were one of very few companies in the market who could deliver it.” “Since Incentive took over there have been significant improvements in all areas of the operation allowing my team more time to concentrate on tenant satisfaction, CSR initiatives and increasing the value of the center for the landlord.” Lee Greenwood, Centre Manager at Crystal Peaks.
