Workman and Partners are the UK’s leading specialist and independent property management firms. We are pleased to recommend and use Energy & Technical Services Ltd because of their high level of understanding and expertise.
We have employed them mostly as independent investigators, consultants and trouble-shooters, primarily on large commercial office buildings in the South of England.
We find their experience in heating and air conditioning plant enables them to understand quickly what they find on site, analyse it and provide helpful and well informed advice on how to make things more efficient, both in running costs and energy consumption.”
“We have been impressed by ETS’ professionalism, commitment and moreover the energy savings made.”
Energy Manager, Sainsbury’s
The bulk of the support provided by ETS Ltd is to the multi-let offices where, on behalf of the landlord, we provide the M & E Services. The type of multi-let property can range from a small 10,000 sq. ft. three storey building with a simple gas wet heating system, through to a fully air conditioned 250,000 sq. ft. office block in the West End of London.
We have been using the services of ETS Ltd and its predecessor Emtec for over three years. In that time, we have found them to be extremely supportive and very professional in their approach.
The prime reason for going down this route was the lack of technical expertise within our Company and increasing legislative compliance that made us over dependent upon the advice of contractors, who clearly had a vested financial interest. In many instances, we have found that ETS Ltd’s fees have in fact been more than offset by more competitive contractor rates, improved contractor performance and improved efficiency of plant.
In particular, we have found that ETS Ltd take considerable care in understanding our Client’s requirements and personally explaining and interpreting what can sometimes be very technical information.”

Bevan Brittan Solicitors have employed Energy & Technical Services Ltd (ETS) for the past five years. Their initial task was to produce a plan for energy management within the building and recommend ways of saving energy and increasing efficiency.
I have been totally satisfied with their service. Within one year, controls were introduced to produce savings that have enabled Bevan Brittan to reduce costs significantly. Indeed our electricity costs have only just reached the level they were at five years ago. We have also cut our oil consumption by 15%.
I have also employed ETS to project manage two major plant replacements. On both occasions, their advice has been sound and the project successful. More importantly, their after sales service has been exceptional. When faults have occurred (rarely) their reaction was prompt and little or no charge was made for the extra service.
I would have no hesitation in recommending ETS to any prospective employer who wishes their energy and technical services to be managed efficiently.”

ETS have acted on our clients’ behalf for the last six years, whilst I have acted as a management surveyor for Chesterton and King Sturge. ETS have provided mechanical and electrical and energy advice for a number of buildings, all with different requirements. These are predominantly larger office buildings with more sophisticated mechanical and electrical equipment but recently advice has extended to plant within shopping centres.
ETS have prepared asset registers, tender documents, reports, and recommended appointment of contractors. ETS have monitored appointed contractors to ensure that the contract is completed as necessary. This identifies shortfalls as and when they occur, which allows immediate remedy rather than identification following failure of plant.
ETS have also been appointed to provide energy advice and implement controls. Particularly to monitor and appraise the requirements of a building and amend controls accordingly. This has led to substantial savings in energy consumed and therefore cost savings.”
Senior Associate, King Sturge
Of all the projects in our stores ETS has managed the Energy Reset project in the most thorough fashion. It has been an extremely well managed project.”
Facilities Manager, Arcus FM
ETS have been at the forefront in achieving energy savings throughout our estate”
