The BESA has a proud heritage, having been established in 1904 as the National Association of Master Heating and Domestic Engineers.
BESA has been known by several names through the years, most notably as the Heating and Ventilating Contractors’ Association (HVCA) for nearly 50 years. We have evolved to reflect the changing needs of our members and the sector, and in 2012 we rebranded to the Building & Engineering Services Association (B&ES) to reflect the growing range of specialisms covered by our members. Now trading as BESA, our name highlights the fact that first and foremost we are an association, and our members will always be our primary focus.
Choosing the right building engineering services specialist is a critical decision for everyone involved in creating, developing or refurbishing a building.
Getting it wrong means dissatisfied customers, clients and building users; high construction costs; expensive variations to the project plan; and a continuing need to put things right. Getting it right means satisfied staff, users and customers; low operating costs; reduced repair and maintenance; and minimum replacement and refurbishment.
Your supply chain must therefore contain building services specialists that are fully equipped to design and install state-of-the-art systems. Specialists with the range of skills and resources needed to meet client priorities – and to deliver on value, on time and on budget.
Uniquely in the sector, members of the Building Engineering Services Association undergo a rigorous office and site-based inspection and assessment process to ensure their compliance with the highest technical, commercial and health safety standards.
