VVB takes a full lifecycle approach to projects, designing to optimise delivery and service life. We understand the realities of projects, are familiar with actual product features and availability, and design for the real world.
Value engineering from the earliest stages
VVB has experience operating to British, European and International standards, as well as client specific requirements. Our team of design engineers are experts across our four key sectors, and remain on hand throughout installation for timely troubleshooting.
- Our end-result focus means a seamless transition from design to delivery
- We design in line with true project requirements, planning something we know we can build
- We can return to First Principles to validate and improve third party design work

- Testing and Commissioning
- Assurance and Handover
We design with an eye on delivery, thanks to a deep understanding of project implementation and suitable products. We explore the opex implications of designs, delivering genuine value over the design life of the project.Read More
Our end-result focus means we validate installation against design in real time. This ensures potential issues are spotted early, and timely solutions are proposed. We liaise with other service providers and suppliers directly, to simplify communications.Read More
Testing and Commissioning
From factory to site, and systems integration, we provide a fully optimised system and a seamless handover. The verification and testing procedures undertaken throughout installation mean we deliver a fully accredited system, quickly, with no surprises.Read More
Assurance and Handover
We plan for a successful Handover from day one, operating a progressive Assurance regime throughout installation, to ensure a trouble free transition to daily operations. We work flexibly to meet the precise needs of individual people and projects.Read More
We consider maintenance requirements from the earliest design stage and maintain our systems throughout installation. But we don’t stop there. We draft maintenance manuals, define schedules, and provide preventative and reactive contracts to ensure the finished product is fully supported.Read More
