Since originally beginning solely as an installation contractor VVB has become actively involved in the design and specifying of Mechanical, Electrical & Communication Systems where clients have benefited from our extensive knowledge, skills and experience.

DesignVVB have experience in operating to British, European and International standards as well as client specific standards such as Highways Agency, LUL, Network Rail and BAA.

VVB management and design engineers have construction, installation and maintenance experience giving an unparalleled viewpoint on design, which specialist design houses do not posses. This enables significant cost and programme savings to be realised as buildability and value engineering are inherent in the early design stages.

Design input can be as lead designer, management of M&E design, or detailing systems from consultant specifications.
