About ESD

ESD is a building services consultancy practice which has been delivering high quality mechanical and electrical design services for over 25 years. The business, established in 1994, operates from our Manchester office generally covering the North West and Midlands regions combined with a strong client base and portfolio across North Wales, Wirral and Merseyside. The business also operates broadly across the UK serving our nationwide established clients within the care sector.

We are client focused having built a reputation of collaborative working, whether with clients, design team members or our team of highly skilled engineers. We pride ourselves on always putting the client first and creating long-standing relationships built on trust and mutual respect. Our schemes benefit from a wealth of live project experience as well as a highly-skilled team each consisting of a director, project leader and a suitably resourced design team to ensure the project requirements are met.

We have a ‘lean construction’ approach to our projects to enhance final build quality, operational, energy and economic efficiency. Our internal management system is intrinsically linked to our ISO 9001 accreditation and our BIM capabilities to level 2. We are active in employing BIM protocols across all our work and our engineers, even the most junior are trained in the use of Revit software as a priority.


We truly understand the importance of trust, our clients have confidence in us to deliver their projects to the best of our ability, and with over two decades of experience it’s clear we don’t disappoint.


We believe in collaboration, whether with a client, contractor or  design team member, the highest calibre work is produced in partnership with others.


Our impressive list of long standing clients speak volumes when it comes to quality. We create quality relationships and employ quality people to produce quality designs, it’s that simple.

We’ve worked with ESD for several years now and they’ve become our most trusted M&E consultants across a range of projects due to the wealth of experience and quality of service. We’ve been really impressed with their support throughout all project workstages, BIM expertise and use of Revit software to work collaboratively in order to deliver quality design engineering solutions that meet the client’s budget and project timescales, particularly in the education sector. We look forward to continuing to develop the relationship.

Coleg Cambria

ESD have been a key member of our design team following the successful completion of our new care home in Kenilworth in 2016 and are now working closely with us on our new care home development in Warwick. ESD have supported us technically in our drive to embrace the technology and innovation available to us to enhance the wellbeing of our residents and staff within each home in the form of acoustic monitoring integrated within the nurse call system across the Wi-Fi network on smart phones and the integration of Circadian lighting and associated intelligent controls within the design of the Warwick care home development. We would have no hesitation in recommending ESD and their commitment to providing a collaborative approach to the design process has been clearly evident to us.
