Two electricians from BJF Group have received glowing praise from our client GFSL for going above and beyond to fix an electrical fault which meant that a prison establishment was unable to utilise their stoves.

An electrician and electrical improver from BJF Group have been highly praised by two senior members of the GFSL team for a recently completed critical reactive job within a Kent prison establishment.

As a key supplier of reactive and planned maintenance support to many of the UK’s prison establishments, our teams are well-versed in working within secure environments and dealing with the unique challenges that this often presents. Usually our day-to-day activities are made up of maintenance tasks which, whilst important, are not critical to the operation of the establishments. A recent cooker fault however posed a significant problem in that the establishment were unable to provide hot meals.

Having quickly identified the root cause and rectified the fault, we were able to prevent the establishment from having to source 1,000 cold meals from a secondary supplier which would have come at significant cost and posed a logistical difficulty for the establishment.

The GFSL Site Manager for the establishment said:

I would just like to say the same for the great work that your electricians completed today, this was a fantastic piece of work and will save the establishment a great deal of hassle with ordering cold meals from another source.

I wanted you to know that we are very happy with the work.”

Aaron Kimber, Operations Supervisor for BJF Group’s Project Services Division said:

“Over the time that we have worked with GFSL within prison establishments, our teams have delivered a successful reactive maintenance service time and time again.

Our site-based engineers and operatives undertake their work within a challenging environment and we are always delighted to receive thanks for a job well done.

On this occasion I would like to say a specific well done to the two operatives who were able to efficiently solve a complex issue, saving the establishment money and time.”
