I started on my first entrepreneurial journey (and hopefully not my last) in June 2014 by setting up Sense Property Management.
We are located in East Birmingham with a small workshop/stores at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.
With most of our work being undertaken at our clients’ premises, we have established a service area that covers all of Greater Birmingham, Solihull, Coventry, Royal Leamington Spa and Warwick.
Update: We have now moved our office to Shirley, Solihull and we are now provding nationwide coverage with a 24/7 emergency response service.
My vision is to create a progressive, specialist, support business, involving top local fire, security & electrical specialists taking away all of the legal and compliance worries concerning fire and security risks, as well as electrical safety from our future clients.
This will then give our clients additional time to focus on the more profitable areas of their operations, thereby making our services profit generating, rather than an operational cost.
I’m sure I must have felt just like you, when you set up your first business. Full of excitement, yet mixed with a dose of worry.
Fortunately for me, things just seemed to slot together with friends, past clients and ex business colleagues giving me introductions & referrals, which got me off to a flying start.
If any of you are reading this. A MASSIVE THANK YOU!
There are two distinct service areas to my new business, although both often go hand-in-hand:
- Design, installation and commissioning of fire prevention and security systems along with new or upgrading commercial or industrial electrical wiring projects.
- Compliance and maintenance services ensuring our clients always operate within the latest standards and regulations in respect of fire risk, security risk and electrical safety.
We specialise in working with companies involved within the manufacturing, distribution, entertainment, retail and leisure sectors.
We also have experts who work with Right to Manage Organisations (RTM) keeping apartment blocks safe.
Future Blog Posts
I’m thinking about creating four blog categories:
Fire Protection – This will keep you up-to-date with any legal or compliance changes, new product reviews, along with any changes in our services and overviews of our fire protection and safety projects.
Security Systems – Updates on any legal or compliance changes, new product reviews and overviews of our projects and services.
Electrical Services – Once again, we will keep you up-to-date with any changes in the law or compliance issues concerning electrical safety, along with product reviews and news on projects we’re involved with.
Local News – Hopefully interesting information and happenings within our trading area.
