EMCOR opens Academy for research and training

29 July 2009

EMCOR Group (UK) has opened The EMCOR UK Innovation Academy in partnership with the City of Wolverhampton College which will provide research facilities dedicated to developing the latest services and techniques for customers, as well as training EMCOR employees, apprentices and college students.

The main focus of The EMCOR UK Innovation Academy, which will serve the UK nationally, will be to develop innovative and sustainable electrical, mechanical and public health construction methods, implement lean construction techniques, and trial new products and tools. The EMCOR UK Innovation Academy will also enable demonstration projects to be constructed and tested in an off-site environment, and will become a centre of knowledge excellence by ensuring the resulting skills and solutions are shared with EMCOR’s customers and throughout the supply chain through innovation workshops and best practice guides.

The EMCOR UK Innovation Academy will also provide a training suite, which will become EMCOR’s main centre for training and work based learning for apprentices and employees. Students at the City of Wolverhampton College will have the opportunity to learn in both live and trial environments, and will be offered work placements and site visits to EMCOR projects.

“EMCOR UK is delighted to be launching this industry leading initiative that will deliver tangible benefits to our customers and contribute to the development of the next generation of engineers,” commented John Matthews, Managing Director of EMCOR Engineering Services. Our customers depend on EMCOR for the highest quality services; we believe that now is a key time to invest in the future in order to enhance the skills capability in our industry, as well as to ensure the long-term value which our customers rely upon EMCOR.”
