That was the message from HVCA president john Miller when he spoke at the Annual General Meeting and Conference of the HVCA specialist groups.
He insisted: “You may be interested to learn that, of the vast array of issues on our present agenda, there is one that truly dominates.
“That is the absolute insistence – by all parties to the process – that, in any future structure, the interests of specialist and single-discipline companies must continue to be served, and their issues, preoccupations and priorities taken fully into account.”
The ECA and HVCA are working on developing a model for a single organisation to represent all mechanical and electrical contractors. The proposals will be released later this summer ahead of further consultations with members.
