Emcor is the worthy winner of this year’s Outstanding Contribution category, as the H&V News Awards celebrates its 20th year.
While the awards itself celebrates 20 years of recognising excellence within the building services sector, Emcor’s history of more than 100 years of working to exemplary standards fits perfectly with the event’s special celebrations.
The company has established an enviable reputation for its engineering capabilities and facilities management services. The Emcor UK headquarters serves as a hub for a global operation that is involved in the management of more than 1bn sq ft of facilities around the world.
Within the UK alone, the business provides FM services to virtually every business sector. The increasingly crucial topic of energy management has long been an important part of the Emcor offering, in addition to ensuring compliance with all relevant regulatory requirements, such as health and safety. Its own integrated management systems are certified to ISO 9001:2008.
Corporate social responsibility is another important area of focus within the company.
One example in this area is Emcor’s Taking KidSafety to the Street campaign, which has been launched to raise awareness of the thousands of children that go missing within the UK every year.
The company’s credentials are further endorsed by the pedigree of its clients, including blue-chip organisations such as BAE Systems and Jones Lang LaSalle, local authorities, education and leisure facilities, as well as high-profile sites such as London’s Natural History Museum.
The training and support of its employees is another long-established feature of the business. One of the best examples of this is the Emcor Innovation Academy, which it runs in partnership with Wolverhampton College.
It is used for training employees, apprentices and college students, while also assisting in the development of the latest services and techniques deployed in its numerous contracts.
With more than 26,000 employees worldwide, the company has established an enviable skills base that allows it to continue to not only meet its contractual obligations, but which frequently sees customers receiving the many benefits that can only be delivered with total commitment by service providers to going the extra mile.
