Fire and Security Sub-contractors

Relax… hassle-free sub-contractor partnerships DO exist!

When your delivery network is stretched, you’re left scrambling around for a reliable Fire & Security sub-contractor. When there’s nobody you know and trust, we understand how stressful it gets.

When you use unknowns it can go horribly wrong. Poor quality work, late delivery and you can NEVER get hold of them. NIGHTMARE!

It’s a totally different story with RDS. You can relax and put those bad experiences behind you.

RDS complete the allocated work on time and quite often ahead of schedule… they are great value for money, you know that the job will be done to a high standard and you won’t have to do revisits to sort issues at a later date.

All my in house engineers are always happy to take over a site that has been installed by them as their standards are so high.

    RDS: your project in safe, honest Fire & Security hands!

    RDS are the ideal addition to your delivery network for these three reasons:

    • Honesty and integrity. We’ll NEVER let you down!
    • Delivery. Expect only the highest standard of work. Completed on time too!
    • Safety. Everyone gets home in one piece.

    We are committed to building long term, hassle-free partnerships. You can expect exactly the same service you get from your core work force – just delivered by your sub-contractors.

    Naturally, we have all the Fire & Security accreditations you’d expect; BAFE, screened to BS7858 2012, BS5839 trained, SafeContractor, ECS, CSCS, IPAF 3a/3b/1b, PASMA, SSSTS etc.

    Accreditations and memberships...

    Not just empty promises… it’s the RDS culture!

    Anyone can say…

    you can trust us, we’ll complete on time.

    But TRUST is central to our culture. We do what we say we’re going to do, even when no-one is looking. And, even if it costs a bit more to do the job right. We’ll stay late to get the job done, pay attention to the details and take pride in the work we do.

    It’s our culture. RDS build long-term partnerships and make them hassle-free. It’s simple:

    1. We make your life easy.
    2. You’re delighted and the partnership thrives.
    3. You use us again. And again. And again.

    In (7 years) we have never been let down by RDS and they have been very proactive and positive in resolving any issues encountered.

    IMO they have the desired resource and skill set to deliver a quality and compliant installation.

    I look forward to many more years working with RDS

    3 reasons to build a hassle-free partnership with RDS Fire & Security

    Make your life easy. Call RDS and we’ll run the job from design to hand over and training!
    Here’s 3 reasons to choose RDS as your Fire & Security sub-contractors – Honest, Delivery and Safety!

    HONESTY – always working with you…

    You don’t know RDS yet. But you’ll be glad you found us when a big project comes in and your delivery network is stretched.

    No need to take a punt that could go horribly wrong…

    RDS take a refreshing, partnership approach. It’s just not in our interest to let you down or mess you about. So, we don’t. Pass us the work and consider it done!

    Communication is key – no hiding!

    RDS communicate! If anything crops up or if we finish early, you’ll be the first to know. If you need to get hold of us, we’re not hiding!

    Things might go wrong, we’re only human but… Partnerships mean, we work with you to sort it out. And you won’t be stung with a nasty extras bill, we stick to the agreed schedule of rates. We don’t charge acceleration costs. We’re in it for the long term!

    And one last thing, we turn work away if we’re not available. We don’t make promises we can’t keep. It just doesn’t fit with our partnership culture!

    Very friendly and professional service all round. Always make the effort to be available to attend sites and very responsive to all communications.

    We are particularly impressed with the quality of installation… and the… certification, paperwork and reports.

    Would have no problem recommending RDS to others.

    DELIVERY – properly manned projects

    RDS provide a high quality, end to end managed Fire & Security service. Delivered on time and on budget!

    And we’ll bust a gut to make it happen. If the completion deadline is looming, we’re not the guys rushing off at 5pm, expecting management to put more boots on the ground. No. We’ll work the hours needed to finish the job on time. To the standard required!

    And we’ll put that in the contract!

    Keen attention to detail ensures all work is completed to the highest standards. So, if a panel needs changing it will be, rather than leave a mess. You’ll think the job was done by your core workforce!

    Everyone does security, but we have a BAFE approved Fire team too! Take care of both with one reliable sub-contractor!

    RDS complete the allocated work on time and quite often a head of schedule… you know that the job will be done to a high standard and you won’t have to do revisits to sort issues at a later date.

    SAFETY – everyone gets home safely

    RDS are dedicated to getting everyone home in one piece. All staff, including our sub-contractors, are:

    1. Qualified and screened to BS 7858.
    2. Committed to Health & Safety, hence our SafeContractor accreditation.

    Safety is as important to us as it is to you!

    You will love the approvals package we send you for two reasons. First, the sheer number of accreditations, way more than you usually see. Second, there’s no need to chase. You’ll receive everything in one, single communication via Dropbox or email. Audited and ready to go!

    We aim to please!

    I find RDS to be a company that… is conscious and proactive in managing health and safety in the workplace and provides well completed documentation for all works.
