Nature of client end user business

Originally called Williams & Griffin, the store was formed in 1963 from a merger of independent stores founded by Herbert Williams and Henry Griffin in the 19th century, which was then sold to Fenwick department stores in 2008. This was followed by a major £35 million redevelopment and was the largest department store redevelopment taking place outside Central London.

Today, Fenwick Colchester offers a West End shopping experience featuring the best brands in the region. 

Fenwick Colchester
What the project entails

We host in-house compliance software to ensure all water hygiene treatment works are scheduled and completed on time, every time. All works are electronically hosted on our bespoke logbook portal, service visit reports are emailed out regually.

Specialist services

Closed system water sampling is regularly performed to BS8552 standards using BSRIA BG29 as reference guide.

What we brought to the job

Close liaison and cooperation with the client’s on-site facilities team are paramount importance. Works are programmed to be flexible to ensure there is no loss of service to public areas during opening hours.

Comfort performed an excellent service for us troubleshooting problems we were having with our HVAC systems in a couple of the buildings in an efficient and professional manner while being approachable and courteous at all times.
