The company provides property owners with bespoke solutions for all aspects of vacant building protection, management and maintenance.
We aim to cover all the bases for our clients – from providing property guardians to live temporarily in the properties through to traditional security measures.
We are dedicated to ensuring that their empty buildings are secure and well managed until future plans for them come to fruition.
Our growing team work together with a focus on growth and quality in what we do. We are always looking for a “better way”. No two days are the same and we are all on site at buildings most days interacting with guardians and contractors.
Everyone has to manage their time extremely well to fit in much needed “office time”, take care of the admin and emails that need sending out and responding to every day.
In the last 3 years the company has gone from a start up to managing the two largest property guardianships in the UK. We have some exciting opportunities ahead both within the property guardian sector and beyond.
