Company profile

Established in 1987, The Richard Stephens Partnership Limited is now a well established and highly successful Building Services Consultancy employing in excess of 20 staff. RSP prides itself on the service it provides, to both Clients and the professional team, on each and every project from conception through to completion, and beyond. 

The consultancy has gained significant and valuable project experience across most work sectors. However, it is within the healthcare, (both NHS and private), education and laboratory sectors, in particular, that RSP has achieved its reputation for consistently delivering a quality service. This fact is borne out by the impressive portfolio of clients and projects, a major proportion of which is repeat business and framework agreements entered into with key clients. RSP operates from high quality offices in Edenbridge, Kent, which, as a result of significant investments in CAD and IT, are a high tech, fully networked facility that successfully supports the entire team.
