“The transition of building services from Shropshire to Telford & Wrekin Council has been extremely smooth. We have been impressed with the urgency and efficiency that contractors have arrived on site to deal with an issue. In terms of regular, routine maintenance, our Site Manager is always aware of when a contractor is due on site, something that wasn’t always apparent before. The Priory School are pleased with the service provided to date and the customer service has been first class throughout”.
