In today’s market place there is often little information available to prove the credibility, skill or reputation of a company. Potential clients require the security and peace of mind that they are dealing with a company that is not only capable of carrying out the works involved, but certified to do so. The following is a summary of our certification.
BESA, formerly B&ES and HVCA before that, represent the interests of some 1,400 companies throughout the UK for the design, installation and commissioning of all heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration plant services and equipment. As from 2004 they now carry out an on-site auditing process. RME were one of the first contractors to be audited in 2004 and achieved the levels required to remain on the BESA register.
RME has been approved as an HVCA / B&ES / BESA contractor since 2000.

Constructionline is utilised by many government bodies and blue chip companies to carry out the collation of information on a company and present it in a secure format for review. This forms the basis of contractor selection for many tender lists and termed contracts. Lengthy contractor evaluation and approval processes may therefore be shortened or avoided altogether.
RME has been a member of Constructionline since March 1999.
