EMS Water are very pleased to announce that we have now officially moved into our new office premises located in the heart of Hereford.EMS Water will now be trading from The Old Surgery, 22a King Street, Hereford, HR4 9DA.
The building, which is stone’s throw from Hereford Cathedral, has been used as a doctors’ surgery for over 40 years. Whilst the existing space had a huge amount of potential it did require significant reconfiguration and modernisation to transform the space into a modern office building suitable for our business needs and staff. After several weeks of intense work it is now ready for us to move into.
EMS Water provides comprehensive water safety and management services including Legionella risk assessments, compliance, monitoring and training services and has doubled in size year on year. The new office allows for a designated office space for EMS Water, who have also taken on two new fulltime members of staff during 2020 in response to continuing increase in workload and gained several UK based Legionella contracts.
EMS successful applied and were granted a grant from the European Development fund through Herefordshire MBIP (Marches BuildingInvestment Programme)which contributed towards the development costs to transform the building intoa contemporary office space.
EMS used local main contractors, Thackway and Cadwallader after they successfully won the tender process alongside other local trades including Network Data Services, Hereford Carpets and Edko’s Painters, to complete the works.
With the ongoing uncertainty of this year due to Covid-19 restrictions, EMS have used the opportunity to strengthen and future-proof the business, with expansion of services directly providing new jobs within our community. We hope that alongside our new office base, our fuller range of environmental consultancy services will continue to better serve our existing long standing and high profile client list throughout the UK and allow us to appeal to new clients alike, as well as offer us the opportunity to tender for larger public sector contracts than we have been able to previously.
In a year where uncertainty has been the overriding feature,we are proud to share our plans for future growth and continue to plan to be business for now and into the future. Our staff are looking forward to being apart of the business community within Hereford and supporting the fantastic range of local and independent retailers we have in our city.
