Members must face key challenges, says BESA president

In his inaugural address new BESA (the Building Engineering Services Association) president Malcolm Thomson has highlighted the over-riding duty of the association to help its members face up to present and future challenges.

At the association’s agm he said: 'We must emphasise to clients the high levels of technical competence, commercial capability and adherence to safety best practice that members are required to maintain - and we must address the skills shortages that threaten to limit the extent to which members can take advantage of commercial opportunities.”

'We must protect and enhance the reputation of the BESA badge as one of quality and reliability - and we must ensure that membership remains healthy in number and representative of the sector.'

He added that he would be very proud indeed if, during his presidency, he could encourage BESA's major members to use its smaller members as preferred sub-contractors.

One of the key reasons why small firms joined the association was to gain an understanding of the practices adopted by larger members, so that they could become 'more professional, more innovative and more efficient in all aspects of their business', said Mr Thomson.

'I believe that, by fostering lasting relationships between the large guys and the small guys, much advantage can be gained by both parties,' he added.
