AES have provided workshop solutions for over 200 schools, colleges and universities across the UK

Since 2002 we have been working with local authorities, main contractors and independent institutions to provide effective extraction and workshop solutions for Schools, Colleges, Universities and Vocational Workshops throughout the country – from Shetland to the Channel Islands.

why choose aes

I have dealt with AES on several projects, the last being the £40m New Ayrshire College in Kilmarnock; a ‘7 star’ campus providing facilities for Engineering and Construction students. AES Solutions were the successful contractor providing workshop equipment to facilitate this. Works involved space design, supply and commissioning of equipment to the value of £600k. Works have been carried out on time to an extremely tight budget which has involved some challenging value engineering. AES have risen to the challenge and at times gone above and beyond what would be expected of a sub-contractor. There have provided an excellent back-up facility of in-house design and procurement. I would have no hesitation in recommending AES Solutions on future projects.

The C-VAC extraction system is a revelation, we’re two years in and I’ve never worked in a workshop that’s as dust-free as ours. The fact that it’s automated means pupils don’t need to turn it on, along with the machine they’re using. Health & Safety within Design Technology has always been challenging to achieve within departments that have evolved over time but in a new build the H&S has been planned from the start, making the workshop as safe a place as it can be for our pupils.

"Firstly, I just wanted to give some positive feedback on your engineers visit to carry out the LEV testing and airflow indicator installation. I was very happy with the work carried out and look forward to receiving the LEV reports. Going forward I would be happy if AES would undertake our yearly LEV testing and I will also of course look to utilise yourself if any future installs are required"

Our C-Vac extraction system was installed summer 2017 in our new light manufacturing workshop. The extract system was installed to our specification and we have found it easy to use. The technical aftercare from AES has been excellent any technical inquiry was dealt with a few hours of contacting them.
