Case Studies > Winter Maintenance Contract - Cotswold District Council
Cotswold District Council owns 19 car parks throughout the district and also operate several staff car parks for the use of its employees.
Ubico was awarded the contract to maintain the Cotswold District Council's Public and Office Car Parks in October 2013. Ubico took over the works on a 'pay as you go' basis, carrying out daily checks on all sites as well as monitoring environmental factors on behalf of the client.
The sites are assessed and treated individually in order to maintain public safety, whilst at the same time, keeping costs down. Cotswold District Council's parking manager said:
"Cotswold District Council have engaged Ubico to provide winter maintenance for our off-street car parks and surrounding pedestrian areas...
"Ubico staff know the area well and are able to identify with the specific needs of each individual car park. We have been very pleased with the service over this winter period and have recently agreed to roll this on to next year."
Although it is difficult to forecast overall contract savings due to the unpredictable nature of the service, in 2013/14 Ubico saved the council in excess of £50,000.
