Case Study – Image and Canopy Structural Maintenance

Project: Esso Image and Structural Canopy Maintenance


In 2005, Xmo Strata participated in the competitive tender process for the maintenance of the Esso Image and Structural Maintenance on all company owned filling stations.

The professional procurement team assessed many submissions in huge detail and assessed health & safety, industry experience, performance capability and value for money,  resulting in the work being awarded to Xmo Strata.

When the first contract expired in 2008, we agreed to bring the structural element of the works in-house, alongside our specialist sign maintenance teams, electricians and painters/valeters, to increase client value and after consideration of the value creation that we had already delivered, a contract extension was agreed.

Our remit has included replacement of canopy gutters, under-sheeting, top sheeting, design, supply and installation of the complete forecourt canopy structure, painting, valeting and repair and/or replacement of all signware components to include canopy fascia, shop, car wash, secondary signs, spreaders and MID (price sign) replacements and in-situ upgrades from a tile based pricing system to the latest technology LED displays.

We have successfully carried out more than 12,000 jobs on Esso sites and been fortunate in that our contribution to the team has been recognised and the accolades/awards received include ‘Most Proactive Contractor’, ‘Contractor Safety Achievement’, ‘Contractor Safety Recognition’ and the latest awarded in 2013, for our performance as a ‘Solid Performer’ in 2012.
