What our Client’s say
“Banyards were carefully chosen to lead the Independent Commissioning Management for Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD) at the University of Manchester and have been crucial to the success of the project from their initial appointment through to practical completion.
Banyards engagement provided stakeholder confidence that needs were fully understood and would be addressed through the commissioning management process.
Early input from Banyards allowed commissionability studies to be undertaken during the design stage, ensuring that the commissioning requirements were designed and built in and their commissioning plans, together with their management of commissioning risk registers and witnessing schedules ensured the works were well planned and implemented, through all stages of the commissioning through to successful system acceptance.
Banyards exceeded expectations, demonstrating an excellent ability to proactively understand the interaction between the buildings systems and associated integration of the specialist systems.”
Andy Kinder – Construction Director
University of Leeds
“Working with the Banyards team was a refreshing change, the team’s approach to the entire commissioning process was highly professional. The commissioning process itself and supporting information were presented clearly and concisely.”

“Having Banyards as part of our engineering team gives us reassurance that our buildings are comfortable, well-lit and ventilated; their approach ensures we have sustainable functionality. Over the past 9 years we have developed an excellent relationship with their engineers who have the training, qualifications and experience to not just meet our expectations, but exceed them. I would not hesitate to recommend Banyards.”
Martin Smith – Head of Engineering
“Banyards have a genuinely proactive ethos and their consultative approach with the wider design team has led to the delivery of five successful projects to date. Their attention to detail and management procedures are excellent and they consistently deliver well through our MEP solutions. I have worked closely with them for the past three years and would not hesitate to recommend them.”
P’nina Drye – Senior Project Manager UK & Europe
“We have appointed Banyards for 3 years to successfully deliver of a number of Design and Build local authority education projects. Initially, Banyards supported our bid winning process by providing a bespoke fee proposal based on our requirements and they have highlighted any areas of concern or risk.
Once appointed, Banyards explore alternative design solutions and pro-actively make suggestions at the appropriate stage to maximise opportunities and manage design and compliance risks. As a typical example, Banyards explored different heating methodologies for St George’s School and opted for alternative approaches in different areas of the school based on the room uses and a number of other factors.
Design delivery is when expected and of a good standard. At all times, Banyards’ engineers interact with the design and construction teams in a collaborative way and maintain a consistent approach through the project lifecycle. In addition to project work, Banyards attend and contribute to our consultant supply chain engagement events; overall one of our preferred ‘go-to’ Building Services consultants.”
Matthew Barker – Design Manager
“Banyards are particularly good with listed buildings and have the knowledge to satisfy the requirements for a green solution, which is always quite a challenge in a historic building.”
