UGL Services to provide subcontractor management

March 31, 2011

CHICAGO — Covington Realty Partners has selected UGL Services, a division of UGL Limited, to manage its subcontractors that perform landscaping and sweeping, as well as litter, trash and graffiti removal services at a number of retail properties, according to a press release.

UGL Services received the contracts to provide centralized management for several regional subcontractors that operated under separate contracts at each of the properties, and is working closely with Covington management to continuously improve the exterior spaces at the properties, the release stated.

According to the release, the supervisors will oversee day-to-day operations and qualify, select and contract with specialized service providers as the needs arise for repairs to parking lots, signs, fences, poles, lighting and outdoor structures, as well as for other special projects.

"We faced the challenge of achieving consistent quality across several widespread properties that we manage," said Covington Vice President of Property Management Steve White.

"With UGL Services, we''re able to outsource to local service contractors and still work with a single, professional management team. This way we meet the quality and reporting standards that we and our investors expect," White added.
