Our site and laboratory staff are highly trained and multi-skilled. When not on site our staff are dedicated to their ongoing training and the quality control requirements of the company. We have five levels within the site and lab teams ranging from assistant surveyor to manager.
The majority of the training that our staff receive is performed in-house by Managers and Directors who have 25+ years experience in the industry.
Staff are encouraged to climb the "technical ladder" and are rewarded with every step they take. Our strength as an organisation is our comprehensive approach to training staff - covering both professional technical and customer support skills.
Our commercial team is made up of field and office based staff that are dedicated to meeting the needs of our clients. All the team sit BOHS and other technical training courses in the same way that our technical and onsite staff do.
Their detailed technical knowledge allow them to provide well thought out and comprehensive quotes and advice, tailored to suit the client's needs and budget, whilst conforming to current best practice and legislation.
Our support staff are a vital part of AEC and ensure that technical and operational staff are assisted with all the important back office work that goes into every project.
Functions such as customer support, resource planning, administration, accounts, IT and HR are all carefully managed to ensure we deliver efficient and professional services.
Many support staff are also trained in technical disciplines some actually can, and do, undertake site and lab works – providing an extra level of cover if needed.
