We keep buildings safe and sustainable


Company History


Vital started in 2005 to provide facilities management services across the Thames Valley. In 2008 we expanded into energy services, with the introduction of mandatory Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs). We have been at the forefront of the energy certification sector since this time and have contributed to several Government working parties.

In 2010 we started to provide asbestos management services for commercial landlords. More recently we have greatly expanded our range of services. These now cover almost all of the statutory surveys and assessments required by commercial property landlords and occupiers.

In 2014, we launched our nationwide unique Vital EPC Plus Upgrade report. With this consistent, building-focused recommendations service we can show you how to future-proof your investment. This tried and tested methodology is so versatile it can be used for all types of buildings from domestic, industrial and retail, up to the largest and most complex office suites in the country.
