BESA says British contractors essential following the Brexit
Service contractors advised to focus on ‘stabilising the economy and moving forward’
The Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) has released a response to the EU referendum and the subsequent vote to leave the EU, stating that British building and engineering service contractors must now play a vital role in “stabilising the economy and moving forward”.
BESA is a leading trade organisation within the UK, representing and supporting British companies which provide “design, installation, commissioning, maintenance, control and management of engineering systems and services in buildings”, including the manufacturers, suppliers and installers of air conditioning units.
Before changing its name in 2012, BESA was known as the Heating and Ventilating Contractors’ Association.
In a letter addressed to British contractors following the EU referendum at the end of June, BESA said building engineering service contractors should now concentrate on industry growth and that they should support the UK government to develop infrastructure, housing quality, and the ‘energy performance of buildings’.
BESA emphasised the importance of developing and promoting the use of energy efficient technology in building engineering, including the sourcing and use of renewables and sustainable materials.
Additionally, building engineering services firms should focus on attracting, training and developing staff, to keep the UK ahead of the game.
The response further attempted to quieten any alarm there might be surrounding standards within the building engineering services industry.
The BESA response states: “In terms of legislation, most of the standards that directly affect our industry will remain unchanged as the key EU regulations were transposed into UK law long ago.”
