The Service

Clients are increasingly taking advantage of Mace’s growing facilities management business, Operate. This has seen us apply our effective management skills, derived from years of delivering highly complex construction projects, to help run a company’s property, from managing costs to maximising the workforce. We support clients to build new premises, optimise their existing properties or handle the everyday maintenance and services.

We oversee a wide range of premises on behalf of clients, from commercial offices and government buildings to cultural landmarks. Acting as either a managing agent or principal contractor, we build a service delivery model around the specific needs of our clients, taking complete responsibility of cost and service quality. Areas that we manage include catering, cleaning, maintenance and security – whatever a client’s needs might be. Operate is currently employed in sectors such as technology, industrial, pharmaceutical, arts and culture, and public buildings.
