Wayne Bambridge (Business Development Manager) accepts our membership certificate at the RAC Club in Pall Mall London.
Membership of the Heating and Ventilating Contractors’ Association (HVCA) represents firms who are active in the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) products and equipment.
To gain HVCA membership companies have to undertake a robust independent third party inspection and assessment audit of their everyday processes to verify their technical competence and commercial capability.
Since the introduction of the inspection and assessment scheme, the HVCA has further enhanced its strong reputation within the HVACR sector. In a recent survey carried out by the independent organisation BMG Research, 60% of 200 local authorities surveyed responded that they are more likely to choose an HVCA member to undertake HVACR contracts following the introduction of third party inspection and assessment.
For nearly a century members of the Heating and Ventilating Contractors’ Association (HVCA) have demonstrated an unrivalled commitment to higher standards and best practice.
This additional accreditation adds to the very strong portfolio of industry certification we already achieved and will help to obtain new business.
The HVCA is itself a member of the Specialist Engineering Contractors' (SEC) Group, which provides a united voice for engineering specialists and has representation on the Strategic Forum for Construction.
It is also a member of GCI-UICP, the European umbrella body for the hvacr and plumbing sectors, and of CEETB, which exists to represent all engineering specialists in construction.
HVCA is a member of the TA Forum. Since its formation in 1997, the Trade Association Forum has been encouraging the development and sharing of best practice among UK trade associations and promoting the role of effective trade associations to government, industry and the wider public.
