Talking about Bellrocks Philosophy
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.

We have always been a technology-enabled business, but in 2016 Bellrock made a significant acquisition so our clients can use their workplace as a lever for efficiency and productivity gains. This was the addition of the 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.

Our Sectors

Bellrock works with organisations across all industry sectors where the quality of the workplace and compliance are essential. We have particular experience in Corporate, Education, Government, Healthcare, Local Authority and Retail and Leisure.

Whether creating an effective compliance regime and maintenance plans for critical assets or managing the extensive HTM (Health Technical Memoranda) indicators, our knowledge and experience helps organisations streamline processes and drive efficiencies.

Our professionally qualified team also advises local authorities, retail and leisure organisations and schools on maximising their assets by disposing of property or land to generate capital receipts.

Bellrock is a supplier to a number of key frameworks such as the Crown Commercial Services, GCloud, for our Concerto software, and Fusion21 Framework’s for CAFM, estate and facilities management.

Our Sectors Bellrock
Corporate Responsibility Bellrock

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.
