What we do

Our philosophy is to apply the most relevant delivery model whether that is using a supply chain or  our in-house teams. We harness the emerging world of the intelligent workplace, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI), not only to reduce costs and risk, but also to enhance the customer experience.

Using our IDEA (integrated digital estates assets) model we help our clients understand the maturity of their FM and property processes and data gathering so that we can implement the most efficient delivery model for their organisation. Our unique combination of subject matter expertise, supply chain management and world class technology mean we partner with ambitious organisations focused on competitive advantage, reducing costs and risk to realise the value of their estate.

Bellrock how we deliver

How we deliver

Creating a data rich map of your estate is the starting point. We collect data about the assets, your suppliers and how your buildings are used. With the data, we paint a picture together of how the estate can develop to accommodate changing organisational needs, the assets maintained and how your organisation’s wider ambitions can be supported.
We apply our experience and world-class leading technology suite, Concerto, to manage the interactions between the properties, assets and suppliers with your internal stakeholders. This becomes a roadmap for reducing cost, ensuring statutory compliance, and unlocking improvements to the workplace environment that improve productivity and customer experience.

Description on Bellrock and history

Our Story

Like our namesake, an innovative, off-shore lighthouse whose Stevenson design was originally shelved because of its radical approach, we look at things from a new perspective.

Despite being told it couldn’t be done, intrepid engineers built the Bellrock Lighthouse, the very first lighthouse at sea, making treacherous waters around submerged rocks safe. Over 200 years later the Bellrock lighthouse remains an inspiration to those prepared to challenge how people think and strive for a better way.

Today, Bellrock Property & Facilities Management continues to look at things from a new perspective, challenging the industry and the status quo. Technology has enabled this new approach, providing customers with a rich data landscape to realise the true value of their estate. We have always been a technology-enabled business, but in 2016, Bellrock made a signifi cant acquisition to benefi t all our clients so they can use their workplace as a lever for effi ciency and productivity gains. This was the addition of our powerful software engine Concerto.

Since early 2017 we have continued to add new companies from around the UK, enabling us to broaden our portfolio of advisory and delivery services in the property and technical sectors.

Corporate Responsibility

Our corporate social responsibilities are interwoven with our operational processes. This is fundamental to ensuring we impact positively on the communities where we work and develop both national and local sustainability agendas. Where we do not have direct managerial control, we work to influence others to reduce our indirect impacts. Our supply chain partners are carefully selected to ensure they align with our ethos and vision.

We also recognise that environmental management and control are major factors. Our environmental management system (EMS) was designed to ensure it satisfies the requirements of ISO14001.
