HVAC rebrands as B&ES

29th Mar 2012

Over 90 per cent of the membership voted to change the name at a special general meeting held in London on Thursday 8 December, following a major consultation exercise.

In introducing the resolution to re-brand, HVCA president Bob Shelley explained that independent research carried out among members and their clients had revealed a widespread belief that the HVCA name no longer fully reflected the scope of services provided by Association members, which is “now much broader than simply h&v”.

“It is clear that clients do not fully recognise the ever-widening range of services our members provide – nor the increasing role they play in the integration of engineering systems in today’s buildings, especially in relation to the growing trend towards renewable and environmental technologies,” said the president.

In welcoming the decision of the membership, chief executive Blane Judd stressed that the re-branding was just one element in a “re-positioning” exercise that would enable the Association to provide its members with a wider range of services, enhance its influence on Government and across the wider construction industry, and provide a “natural home for all specialists within building and engineering services”.

“It also acknowledges the increasing clients’ emphasis on an integrated, one-stop-shop approach to the procurement of building and engineering services, and satisfies their wish for a broader-based organisation that is able to respond to ever-changing requirements,” Mr Judd concluded.

At H&C Contracts we are proud to have been a member of the HVCA since1987 and will be proud to continue our association under the new B&ES banner. H&C has also evolved over the years into much more than just a heating and ventilation contractor. We now also provide a wide range of air conditioning, process cooling, controls and commissioning services.
