There are no certainties in life, and so much is down to the skill and commitment of us all as individuals. However, numerous independent commentators see that there are likely to be skill shortages in work within the built environment and building services engineering in particular.
Currently, as a country, Britain is not training sufficient number of apprentices to meet the expected demand, which is good for qualified people as it means greater job security and better personal returns for respected professionals. Additional impetus for careers in the industries is the growing importance of new technologies, driven by a combination of fuel prices and our international obligations in meeting environmental targets.
Whether it is in newly built premises, or in the renovation of existing properties, much-valued building services engineers will be in demand.
