What sets Hy5 Commercial Cleaning apart from the rest?

Commercial cleaning

B&ES is the UK’s leading professional body for building engineering services contractors.

Founded in 1904, it adds value to members’ businesses by providing quality services, promoting excellence and shaping the commercial environment through representation and leadership.

B&ES represents the interests of firms active in the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration (hvacr) products and equipment.

B&ES members like Hy5 are subject to regular, third-party inspection and assessment to ensure their technical and commercial competence.

All B&ES members are subject to a thorough Inspection & Assessment process carried out by an independent third party every three years.

This process ensures that when you use Hy5 they have a true ‘badge of quality‘.


Before you engage any commercial cleaning business, you can check their credentials by visiting the B&ES ‘locate a member’ section to verify that they have the competence and commercial capability



Third party proof


Compliance with recognised industry standards is a condition of B&ES membership. Since 1 April 2003, verification of such compliance has involved regular, third-party inspection and assessment, covering technical competence and commercial capability.
Financial health
Inspection and assessment is made up of two elements: The first looks at a company’s commercial capability. It covers such matters as administrative and business systems, financial and training records, insurance arrangements, and health and safety, environmental and equal opportunities policies.

The second is designed to evaluate a company’s technical competence. It takes place on-site and involves the inspection of work in progress against a broad range of standards, devised and compiled by B&ES in collaboration with the Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA).

I&A is carried out on behalf of B&ES by the recognised certification body BM Trada, which has a long track record in the construction industry.

All new members are inspected before their membership of B&ES can be confirmed. Then, as with current members, they will be inspected every three years.

For customers and clients it provides confidence that, when they appoint a B&ES member, the work will be done to specification, to the standards required, within the time-frame and the budget determined.


REMEMBER: B&ES members are subject to regular, independent third-party inspection and assessment that verifies their technical competence and commercial capability. Which is why, when clients use a B&ES member, they can be confident that their project or work is in safe hands. B&ES provides its members with the quality services and resources that help them to develop and maintain the high level skills and services that are needed by you, the client.
