The company works with many of the UK's leading FM organisations, ensuring that their clients' requirements in terms of glass and glazing maintenance are fully covered. This is illustrated clearly in a new a four year planned and reactive maintenance contract secured with Carillion on behalf of The Royal Bank of Scotland. It covers the glazing maintenance requirements of four RBS buildings in Bishopsgate and in Devonshire Square, representing in total some 50,000 square feet of glass facade.
All external glazing, including automatic doors, as well as roller shutters are maintained by Glass Aftercare, with the contract representing a renewal to an original three year contract that has just been successfully completed. Glass Aftercare works closely with both Carillion and the RBS Estates teams to ensure that the maintenance contract is fulfilled to the highest standards.

The flexibility, professionalism and experience of Glass Aftercare, together with the company's attention to detail and ability to diagnose potential problems at an early stage were key factors in the renewal of the contract. Full Health & Safety compliance and the use of the art handling equipment were also essential. As part of the contract, Glass Aftercare provides up to date management information enabling Carillion and RBS to use it as part of a complete facilities management plan that supports strategic corporate objectives and minimises costs associated with glass maintenance. Glass Aftercare also has access to a global supply chain, working closely with its suppliers to provide Carillion and RBS with bespoke solutions to any new or replacement glazing requirement.
