GBSS in the Press:
Maintaining Excellence

  • All,
  • Building Services Maintenance

Construction and Civil Engineering Magazine featured an article called ‘Maintaining Excellence’ on Gratte Brothers Specialist Services in their December edition (issue 206). In the eight-page spread, GBSS Managing Director, Barney Whiting, and Group Managing Director, David Gratte, provided insight on how GBSS Maintains Excellence. With a targeted readership of industry professionals, Construction and Civil Engineering Magazine is a brilliant publication to promote our services.

As a Group, we’re very proud to retain our independence via our family-ownership. Now under the stewardship of the Third Generation of the Gratte family, authenticity, competence and care remain three of our most important values. It’s this ethos that facilitates our teams to deliver the quality service that we are renowned for as a Group. Specialist Services provides planned and reactive maintenance to commercial and mixed-use buildings, and, like all of our operating companies, is an outpost for the Group’s core values.

Alongside detailing our approach to business and methods of delivery, Barney accredits the success of the business chiefly to the people within it:

“Our people are at the heart of everything we do; through their commitment, skills and constant drive for improvement they are primarily to credit for our high level of client satisfaction”.

In addition, the article details that we are proud to be large enough to handle big projects efficiently, while being small enough to retain the agility and personal touch of a smaller company. This is a real advantage for our client relationships, as it provides reassurance that we can deliver on-brief, no matter the criteria. All this, and always with a positive attitude and somebody on the end of the phone whenever we’re needed. If you haven’t read the full article yet, you can read it on the Construction and Civil Engineering website, here (and turn to page 28). We were delighted to be featured alongside adverts for our friends in the trade, Beauchamp & Bird, and PH Water & Air Technologies. Our thanks go to Construction and Civil Engineering Mag for the feature, and to Barney and David for sharing their insights.
