About Us

We are Exyte Hargreaves. For over 150 years we’ve excelled as a construction engineering business – designing, manufacturing and installing specialist HVAC systems for construction projects.

Henry Hargreaves & Sons began as a family business in 1872. While our roots remain deep in the North West, our influence as a company stretches across the UK and beyond our borders. Today, as part of the Exyte Group, we work with our global partners to Bring the Future of Technology to Life.

Our team includes specialists in BIM and digital technology to reduce reliance on paper. All projects include the creation of a BIM model and digital twin to support whole life monitoring of assets and materials. We make all data available to clients in a common data environment to reduce inefficiencies, maximise reuse of materials and reduce waste. The introduction of digital technologies to reinvent traditional activities (like site inspections) has led to a reduction in our carbon footprint by minimising travel and physical occupation on sites.
