DMA wins 13 London hostels

DMA Group are delighted to confirm that London Hostel Association (LHA) have appointed us to support their property maintenance needs across 13 large London properties, including a 24/7 customer care and emergency callout service.

Originally created to give shelter to those made homeless by the Blitz, the Government set up LHA in 1940 to provide hostels. Today, LHA is a charity but is still managed by a voluntary Board of Trustees catering for domestic and international students, young professionals, interns and apprentices.

We look forward to a long term relationship that leverages our unique, added value ‘Life of Building’ solution. Well done team DMA!!

DMA generated the power!

We recently hosted some of our customers and trusted service partners from across DMA and Denne Joinery at the annual Professional Cricketers Association Masters charity event at Bexley Cricket Club. We’ve supported the event for many years which comprises a Leigh Academy students team pitted against a Legends 11 made up of past professionals like Mark Ramprakash and we were blessed with great weather too.

However, when we arrived there had been a fire in the Pavilion and all the electrics were down which meant the caterers were panicking about feeding over 400 people and most importantly of all…. the beer pumps weren’t working!!

Quick thinking from one of our Project Directors from our Engineering team, meant we arranged delivery of a mobile diesel generator within the hour to help save the day. Bexley Cricket Club, Leigh Academy and the PCA were absolutely delighted that both food and ale were restored.

WORLD CLASS JOINERY DESIGN, MANUFACTURE & FITTING

Makes us feel so proud to witness the skill and passion for quality that our Denne Joinery artisans display when they design, manufacture, assemble and fit bespoke joinery for our customers; including bars, wall panels, floating ceilings, cupboards, shelving, seating, doors, receptions and much, much more. And rather than wood alone, our solutions integrate metal, glass, stone, fabric and composite materials.

Seeing our state of the art manufacturing facility full of exquisitely crafted product, in this instance complex banquette seating, nearing the end of its production, before being shipped to site for fitting, is a stark reminder that it’s the culmination of 215 years of experience and  many 100’s of hours of attention to every little detail that makes it happen. Well done team Denne!

DMA’s continued super prime success!

Following our recent success with Four Seasons Residences at Grosvenor Square, DMA Group has secured the maintenance of another super prime residential development in central London.

This new development in Holborn contains 202 luxury apartments over nine floors with basement car parking, swimming pool, sauna, cinema room, private dining areas, and kitchens. Some apartments have private gardens and there’s an enclosed courtyard with mature trees.

It’s located near the Royal Courts of Justice and our customer, Lodha Group, is India’s largest residential developer and this is their first development in the UK. It’s a great result for our F&M sales and operations teams – well-done team DMA.

Making buildings work, together

DMA was proud and privileged to be able to introduce our integrated ‘Life of Building’ Solution from across our service lines when meeting the senior engineering team at The Corinthia hotel this week. It’s a beautiful 5* hotel in Whitehall Place and it was great to discuss and showcase our Facilities & Maintenance, Engineering, Joinery and Interiors experience and capabilities.

We undertook the Joinery design, manufacture and installation in the original spa refurbishment in 2011 and we look forward to the opportunity of supporting their needs again and adding to our growing repertoire of super prime hotel customers.

It was also great to see what a $1.6 million crystal chandelier looks like. Answer: stunning!

Grosvenor Square super-prime residence win for DMA

It’s been a productive couple of weeks for our DMA Facilities & Maintenance sales team, having securing exciting deals to service and maintain super-prime apartments in London.

Last week we received instructions from Four Seasons Residences for the maintenance of the M&E services at 20 Grosvenor Square in Mayfair, reputed to be 37 of the world’s best apartments in the most sought after address, with potential for additional services within the apartments themselves too. Our new customers were impressed by our added value ability to offer all of our service lines that define our Life of Building model, particularly fit out and Joinery. Well done team DMA!

Trusted to deliver

Keeping a hotel’s building and engineering services running 24/7 are crucial to the customer experience.

At every level its fundamentally dependent upon the reliability of the M&E infrastructure. Every hotel engineer faces those challenges, but in a 5* & 6* environment and for super prime serviced apartments that reliability is heightened. Of course failures and breakdowns occur, but quick fixes are as valuable initially, as the eventual permanent resolution. The lighting, electrical power, heating, air conditioning, ventilation, gas, hot water, life safety systems and increasingly the IT & AV services are critical to day-to-day operation, as is remaining safe and legislatively compliant. It’s a demanding and intense environment and GM’s and Chief Engineers need suppliers who they can trust.

Making buildings work, together, is what DMA Group have been doing for over 200 years and our track record is impressive too, The Beaumont, Four Seasons, Ten Trinity Square, Shiva, Fraser Hospitality and The Lanesborough and more. Our Life of Building solution enables us to provide a uniquely wide range of additional inhouse services too, including project design and installation, interior design and fit out, specialist joinery and FM.

Making buildings work, together.

Stressed about making your buildings work?

Making buildings work safely and efficiently whilst staying compliant is tough, even for the most experienced managers. But if you’re responsible in an SME, that’s magnified. Perhaps it’s not your day job, you’re not qualified, time pressed, task overloaded, little resources, too many suppliers, challenged to save money, available 24/7, solving a leaking tap or an IT failure. You’re awash with paperwork, records and certificates yet expected to retrieve anything immediately. SOUND FAMILIAR?

What if you could select a specialist partner who could deliver all your needs, with specific SME experience and solutions? But: you’ve been used to seeing & doing everything yourself, so staying in control with genuine transparency is a prequisite.

Solving that dilemma needs a real partner: giving you unprecedented real-time access into their operating systems (as if your own) that intuitively tell you what’s going on. You’ll want access to everything remotely anytime, anywhere, on any device supported by a 24/7/365 customer care team.

What if that partner had over 200 years experience and 98% of customers rated them as “excellent”? Makings buildings work, together is what we do best.

2. Iconic Space of the Year, winner: WeWork, Poultry.

We are delighted to have been involved and well done to team DMA!

Making buildings work, together, is what we do best, so DMA Group are delighted to have been appointed by Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust to carry out building asset and condition surveys at 17 locations around the Southeast to provide costed and prioritised remedial works plans.
