Association chief executives given insight into ductwork
The chief executives of BSRIA and FETA recently visited ductwork manufacturer ASM Engineering to find out more about the manufacture of ductwork and its importance for efficient and effective buildings. The Hitchin-based company welcomed Julia Evans of BSRIA and Russell Beattie of FETA, as well as Malcolm Moss, president of the Association of Ductwork Contractors & Allied Services — of which ASM is a member.
Bryan Welch, director of ASM, says, ‘It was a pleasure to be able to showcase the engineering and technical resources and investment needed to keep pace with modern construction techniques and fast-track deadlines. It is rare that you get the opportunity to show people behind the scenes of a modern ductwork business. I think our visitors were genuinely surprised at the level of technology in use’
Julia Evans comments, ‘I found the trip both fascinating and informative. At one level it was very much about working metal, which is done very effectively. However, what impressed me the most was the understanding that ASM have of their role within construction projects. They see themselves as not delivering a product but as being integral to delivering a better built environment for the end user.’
