The focus of the Briggs and Forrester Group includes Design, Planning, Cost Advice, Offsite Manufacture, Installation, Commissioning, Isolation and Strip-out, Refurbishment and Maintenance of all types of building services including Structural and Civil Engineering, and Energy Consultancy and Strategies.
We design using statutory requirements and regulations where applicable and we comply with industry specific publications and good engineering practice. Our Design Managers and Project Delivery teams are responsible for ensuring policy and procedures are maintained. We also design on a consultancy basis as required.
Our group companies do at times act as principal contractor which may include CDM obligations on relevant projects and will either directly or by subcontract incorporate Structural and Civil Engineering or other building works. This work will be both undertaken on a Design & Build Basis and Build only.
Our division Briggs & Forrester Building Services Maintenance monitors client Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS). Building Services Maintenance can provide additional soft services including cleaning, security, gardening and reception.
Our division Low Energy Consultancy Ltd (LEC) offers energy monitoring services for clients, where utility bills are examined and analysed for improvement and savings. We provide specialist energy saving reports on a consultancy basis such as BREEAM and Thermal Modelling reports. LEC also advises on and implements low carbon sustainable solutions to a wide range of development and redevelopment projects, providing energy assessment, strategies and advice to building owners, occupiers and developers.
