“YOU’VE GOT TO BE
READY TO BE RELIABLE.”
~ President, Wade Tamblyn
We solved the Commercial Snow Removal problem in Vancouver and turned it into a full-service solution that raised the bar in Commercial Property Maintenance.
Unreliable weather made us think about reliable service differently.
We got our start in snow removal in Vancouver where it snows an average of 10.2 days a year. It’s pretty tough to build a responsive and reliable company on 10 days of business a year so it’s no wonder the #1 complaint of snow removal companies is that they are unreliable.
Our founder understood that you have to be ready to be reliable and, with that in mind, set out to be Vancouver’s most reliable snow removal company by becoming the first all-season full-service commercial property maintenance company with an experienced full-time team and one of Vancouver’s largest privately-owned fleets.
Like the name says, we take care of all of your greyspaces – the spaces you and your patrons don’t notice until they are neglected:
- Snowy & icy parking lots, stairs, and walkways
- Worn out parking spot & way-finding lines
- Cracked curbs & walkways
- Unkempt landscaping
- Weathered, chipped, and faded paint
- Dirt and debris
One Provider Simplicity
All-season full service is what clients wanted all along!
When we started spreading the word about our transition from snow removal to full-service all-season commercial property maintenance, clients and property managers everywhere said, “FINALLY!”
It turns out all the one-stop shop benefits are a huge stress relief!
- One provider, one number to call, regular communication
- One simple contract
- Monthly Reports
- Transparent Billing
- A reliable crew & equipment dedicated to your site
Dedicated Crew & Equipment
We Employ our Crew
We provide careers (not jobs) to the best, and we take care of them so they can take care of you. You’ll notice the difference that a dedicated crew makes to keeping your commercial greyspaces safe, clean, and maintained.
We Own our Equipment
Greyspace has one of the largest privately-owned fleets of trucks and equipment in the Lower Mainland which means we don’t rely on sub-contractors during busy seasons and you can count on us to show up and get the job done.
We got our start in snow removal and optimized the most challenging parts of the business with the following technology and we are always improving.
NetSuite and NextService
NetSuite is the world’s largest Cloud-based Business Management Software solution, engineered to streamline mission-critical processes while providing real-time feedback to clients on the services being performed for them by Greyspace Maintenance Inc.
NextService helps service organizations delight their customers with efficient scheduling and dispatch, automated preventive maintenance programs, comprehensive analytics and more.
Site specific Forms and Check Lists help Greyspace Maintenance collect more data from the field that can be used to improve operational efficiency, implement and track compliance with safety or governmental regulations, and send real-time Service Reports to Property Owners and Managers that can include signatures captured on site and photos that verify nearly anything – arrival on site, acceptance of service, completion of a safety form and more.
0° Weather Monitoring
We keep track of the weather so you don’t have to. If the forecast hits 0°, you can be confident we are on our way.
GPS Tracking, Ambient Air & Road Surface Temperature Sensors
Providing accurate records of how many pieces of equipment were on site, how long they were on site for, and the exact temperature during that time.
We ensure the most optimal parking lot layouts by capturing comprehensive drone footage, then running it through ParkCAD™, a powerful CAD software.
Avalanche Snow Pushers
Our skid steer adapters increase plowing efficiency over 40%, increasing speed, allowing us to clear your lots faster and so you have less time with snow on your lots.
Variable Speed Salters
Our advanced, variable speed salters allow us to achieve savings on salt usage up to 30%, meaning we can reduce costs to ultimately benefit you!
Private Weather Monitoring Services
Available with fixed price annual contracts! We establish a contract with private weather monitoring companies to give site-specific weather forecasts and reports. Inquire for more details.
Premium Calcium Chloride Ice Melt
We use only premium calcium chloride salt, which is less corrosive to pavement and concrete, and melts up to eight times as much ice as traditional sodium rock salts commonly used. Effective as low as -20ºC (compared to rock salt only effective to -6ºC), calcium chloride achieves bare pavement faster than traditional rock salt, reducing the number of applications necessary – saving manpower, equipment, and material costs.
Safe, clean, and maintained greyspaces,
We are as good as our people. We provide careers (not jobs) to the best, no matter age, ethnicity, status, or sexual orientation.
We maintain greyspaces and do our part to ensure our planet doesn’t become one. We are proud to be a net-zero carbon emitter.
A greyspace is the space you don’t notice until it’s neglected. It is our job is to make sure you never notice the spaces we take care of for you.
