About HBE

At HBE, we have a simple, clear philosophy: We deliver a complete range of Compliance services on a local basis to assist the building / facilities manager in providing a safe and healthy built environment for employees and visitors alike.

Our Team

Our staff hold qualifications in Legionella Management and Risk Assessments, Plumbing, Cooling Tower Risk Assessments, Asbestos Services, Fire Risk Management, Health & Safety and Construction Design and Management (PSDP) to name a few. We pride ourselves not only in the technical abilities and knowledge of our staff, but on their abilities to develop pragmatic working relationships with our customers.

Our people invest much of their own personal integrity in how they carry out their responsibilities to their customers, so that, in turn, our clients can fulfil their obligations to employees and visitors.

Our teams work hard to develop a fundamental level of trust with our clients. From here our staff and clients confidently build a solid partnership, where our clients know that the work we undertake, is being carried out the very highest personal and professional standards.


For over 18 years, HBE has continued to grow the number of services we offer and to build a network across Ireland and the UK to meet our clients’ needs.

We deliver our services across the island of Ireland with our locally based field operations teams. The company is privately owned by two locally-based directors, who both still work in the business.

HBE is now proven to be one of Ireland’s leading providers of Compliance services.

We have extensive experience in delivering Compliance services for the built environment across a number of sectors including Councils and Government, Health and Social Care sites, Universities and Education, Social Housing Schemes, Financial Services, Hospitality Chains, Facilities Management & Property Management companies.
