Why Use A BESA Member

Getting It Right

Construction is a complex process. It therefore requires significant expertise to deliver the building engineering services that buildings demand.

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.


Can You Afford To Take The Risk?

Research shows that by improving the quality of workmanship from contactors the industry could save between £7 billion and £12 billion per annum*.

Your supply chain must therefore contain building engineering 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 BESA undergo a rigorous office and site-based inspection and assessment process to ensure their compliance with the highest technical, commercial and health and safety standards.
