We are delighted to share the amazing news that we have been awarded the Gas Appliance Maintenance Service contract for Newcastle University.

Over the next couple of years we look forward to building a great partnership with the University.

We will be looking after the gas appliances in over 260 University buildings to ensure they are all gas safety compliant, as well as under taking planned preventative maintenance to expand the life span of the plant equipment which will help minimise breakdowns.

Martin Elsy, Maintenance Officer, Estate Support Service at Newcastle University says: “We are delighted to have JH Mechanical Services on board and we look forward to building a great working relationship over the years to come. 

It is great to watch a small business grow and be a part of their success.”

Newcastle University, a member of the prestigious Russell Group which represents world class, research-intensive universities across the UK, is recognized for its academic excellence and superb campus estate.

Indeed, it is a great opportunity for our business to work with such a prestigious client.
