Watkins Payne was originally formed as a traditional partnership in 1970 and since then the practice has steadily expanded its knowledge and expertise to offer a comprehensive building services consultancy service with two offices which are located within Central London and Sunbury-on-Thames working on projects located throughout London and the rest of the UK. Since 2000 it has greatly expanded its knowledge and capability in the sustainability sector providing WELL, NABERS, whole life carbon and BREEAM roles amongst others. In May 2022 the business transferred to a limited company 100% owned by an Employee Ownership Trust. 

We are members of the Association of Consulting Engineers, British Council for Offices and UK Green Building Council. Qualifications held by various members of staff include membership of the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), The Institute of Engineering and Technology, Energy Institute, Institute of Mechanical Engineers, Institute of Lighting Engineers, Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering, CIBSE Certified Low Carbon Consultants, WELL Assessors, BREEAM Assessors, Fitwell Assessors, NABERS Assessors and more.

Our reputation and success is built on a philosophy of Director, Operations Director and Associate Director involvement from project inception right through to practical completion. There are currently a total of 8 Directors, Operations Directors and Associate Directors which creates a relatively high senior management to staff ratio which we consider essential in order to adhere to this ethos. This level of engineering commitment also ensures appropriate standards of engineering innovation and integration of commercially viable building services solutions. The drive and enthusiasm from the senior management team maintain our relationship as pro-active members of the design team.

The company is committed to quality assurance in achieving client satisfaction and preventing non-conformity in all of its activities and has implemented procedures to comply with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2000 (Quality Management System).

We have also implemented an environmental management system and achieved ISO 14001 certification as well as health and safety accreditation BS OHSAS 18001.

At Watkins Payne, as well as promoting sustainability and energy efficient solutions throughout, we are dedicated to reducing our impact on the environment. We are working towards zero emissions in our direct operations by 2024 and becoming a carbon neutral organisation by 2030 according to the definitions of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
