Milton Keynes

Strategic Heating Partnership with Milton Keynes Council

A strategic partnership with Milton Keynes Council to service, renew, maintain and repair central heating systems for a portfolio of more than 12,000 residential properties, including the homes of many of the most vulnerable people in the city

The challenge

Building upon our ten year history with Milton Keynes to make the step changes in performance the new strategic partnership is to generate for the people of Milton Keynes

Providing additional operational support to the Council’s responsive repair contractor to expedite refurbishment of void properties and get people in their new homes more quickly

Delivering 100% compliant servicing, reduce breakdown demand through repair, maintenance and replacement with the highest degree of customer satisfaction

Originating and supporting implementation of new initiatives such as digital works management and energy efficiency pilots

The solution

Our solutions evolved to meet client and resident needs as they emerged through the partnership, examples of this in action:

Creating a local operations centre in Newport Pagnell to support our PDA-enabled mobile workforce, we schedule and deliver more than 15,000 call-outs per annum for the Council. This includes evening and weekend emergency support, more than 800 system replacements per annum and domestic renewable energy pilots

Our customer-centric approach sees our Customer Liaison and Supervisory personnel actively engaged with customers, shaping and improving our service to better meet their needs. This includes customer service training and safeguarding protocols for Engineers

All activities are monitored through a suite of programme-specific KPIs jointly agreed with the Council.
